About Tom Wopat:
It’s been several decades since the General Lee first left the ground, sky-rocketing Tom Wopat and co-star John Schneider to instant Dukes of Hazzard stardom. In the 40+ years since, Wopat has been blessed with a multifaceted career that has ranged from starring roles on Broadway, various television appearances, singing in such venues as The Ol’ Opera, Carnegie Hall, and the Hollywood Bowl, to a featured role in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. More recently Wopat released a new recording project, an album entitled Simple Man, a 13 song collection that is his 13th solo album.
Also recently released are the second and third installments of the County Line movie trilogy, County Line: All In & County Line: No Fear, available now on the INSP Network. Wopat also recently starred on the TV series, Black List, which features James Spader, as he quipped “I enjoy keeping a lot of balls in the air.” Tom was a staple on the Broadway stage for 35 years, garnering a pair of Tony award nominations along the way. Long known for his musical leading man abilities, Wopat also was critically acclaimed for his dramatic work in The Trip to Bountiful and Glenn Gary Glenn Ross. But currently it’s his work in the studio and on the road with some of the most talented musicians in the world that has provided Tom the most satisfaction. Tom says, “At this point, I basically do what I enjoy… I’ve been blessed.”
