Samuel John "Lightnin'" Hopkins (March 15, 1912 – January 30, 1982) was an American country blues singer, songwriter, guitarist and occasional pianist, from Centerville, Texas. Rolling Stone magazine ranked him number 71 on its list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time. The musicologist Robert "Mack" McCormick opined that Hopkins is "the embodiment of the jazz-and-poetry spirit, representing its ancient form in the single creator whose words and music are one act".

Lightnin' Hopkins, (rereleased as The Roots of Lightnin' Hopkins) is an album by blues musician Lightnin' Hopkins recorded in 1959 and released on the Folkways label. Persuading Lightnin' with a bottle of gin, Charters convinced Hopkins to record ten songs in that room, using only one microphone. The resulting record was one of the greatest albums in Hopkins' catalog, a skeletal record that is absolutely naked in its loneliness and haunting in its despair Track listing.
AKA: Sam Hopkins and Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins. About Lightnin' Hopkins. Sam ( Lightning ) Hopkins (15 March 1911 – 30 January 1982) was a blues singer and guitarist born in Centerville, Texas. He’s now considered as the last of the great country bluesmen who bridged the gap between rural and urban blues styles. Sam’s father died in 1915, and the family (Sam, his mother and five brothers and sisters) moved to Leona. He got his big break in 1946 with his first recording session in Los Angeles. That first album has been described as downbeat solo blues. Hopkins went on to record for 20 different labels over the next ten years. Hopkins faded into obscurity by the late 50s, but got a second chance in 1967 when Les Blank filmed a documentary on him. That resulted in a European tour and some gigs in the states that helped him a lot financially in his final years.
