You know Joe. When you meet him, he’s the guy you thought he’d be. When you hear him sing, you can feel the honesty in his words.
Since he first topped the charts in 1990 with Home, Joe has remained on a steady course, staying true to his Oklahoma roots and delivering hit after hit totaling twelve #1’s, twenty top 10’s and four gold and platinum albums. When you attend a Joe Diffie concert, you’re not waiting for him to sing his hit - you’re waiting for him to sing your hit. Whether it’s Ships That Don’t Come In, Pickup Man, John Deere Green, or If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets), Joe’s music always makes you remember where you were the first time you heard it.
Joe’s journey to Nashville began when a song he wrote called Love on the Rocks was recorded by country legend Hank Thompson. The taste of success lured Joe to move to Nashville where he really got serious about songwriting and found an additional means of income by singing demos on music row. As his reputation as a demo singer burgeoned, it wasn’t long before he caught the attention of music row’s record executives and Joe was on his way to becoming the star he is today.
As a songwriter, Joe’s success is equally impressive. In addition to the numerous hits he kept for himself, Joe’s songs have been recorded by Holly Dunn, Tim McGraw, Tracy Lawrence, Conway Twitty, Doug Stone, and most recently Jo Dee Messina, who’s recording of My Give a Damn’s Busted became a big hit.
If you’ve ever been to a Joe Diffie concert, you don’t need to be told what an energetic, hit-filled show he delivers. If you haven’t seen Joe’s live show, do yourself a favor and make sure you’re there next time he’s in your town. Vern Gosdin once described Joe Diffie as “the man with the golden voice.” He’s won a Grammy, CMA Awards, and been honored as Humanitarian of the Year by the Country Music Broadcasters. He’s a member of the Grand Ole Opry, recorded with George Jones, and toured the country numerous times. You would think that would be enough, but not for Joe Diffie.
He’s got a lot of great music left to make, and fans everywhere anxiously awaiting his next project. You know Joe – he’ll deliver.
