Joe Diffie Background
Hailing from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Joe Diffie was born in 1958. Having grown up surrounded by
music, Diffie listened to his dad's collection of Merle Haggard, Lefty Frizzell and Johnny Cash. But he also fell for the
electricity of rock-and-roll acts after catching Boston and ZZ Top in concert.
Diffie first started performing in the
public eye with his aunt's country group at the tender age of four.
In high school, he was in a rock band, and eventually
he joined a gospel quartet. In college, Diffie switched to bluegrass, playing in the Special Edition.
Over the next
few years while working in a foundry, Diffie concentrated on penning songs and singing. He got a break when Hank Thompson
recorded Diffie's Love on the Rocks tune. Once Diffie felt he had a chance at making the big time, he decided to pick up and
move to Nashville in 1986.
He worked at the Gibson guitar plant while he continued to pen songs. Diffie's hard work
paid off again when Holly Dunn recorded There Goes My Heart Again in 1989. The song became a smash hit, and Diffie became
a smash himself. He inked a deal with Epic and put out his first album in 1990 called A Thousand Winding Roads. Home, his
debut single, climbed to No. 1 on the country charts, and If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets) took the same successful
course. Two other singles from the album, New Way (To Light Up an Old Flame) and If You Want Me To scored No. 2 spots.
the rest of the '90s Diffie consistently churned out hits. His sophomore LP, Regular Joe, produced Ships That Don't Come In
and Is It Cold in Here both made their way to the Top 5. Recognized mainly for his ballads at this stage in his singing career,
Diffie decided to change things up with Honky Tonk Attitude (1993). The album embraced his rowdy, fun side and became the
hottest selling record yet. The album generated the catchy tunes John Deere Green and Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I
Die), which both landed in the Top 5.
Diffie decided the new humorous formula was working and followed up with Third
Rock From the Sun, Diffie (1994). Pickup Man and So Help Me Girl stole the No. 1 spots on the charts. Mr. Christmas arrived
in time for the holidays in 1995. That same year, he also came out with Life's So Funny, generating Bigger Than the Beatles
- Diffie's fifth No. 1 hit.
With the Twice Upon a Time (1997) album, Diffie's commercial success slipped just a tad,
and so his record label released a Greatest Hits album the subsequent year. The compilation album contained the new tune Texas
Sized Heartache, which put Diffie back in the Top 5.
In 1999, A Night to Remember was cut. It was a traditional country
record that produced two Top 10 hits.
He went back to his more customary style for In Another World (2001). Its title
track shot to the Top 10 the following year. Tougher Than Nails came out in 2004, and then in 2010, Diffie revisited his bluegrass
roots for the Homecoming: The Bluegrass Album.
In 2013, Diffie garnered a surprising resurgence, when his name showed
up in Jason Aldean's hit, 1994. Later that year, Diffie launched a tour with Aaron Tippin and Sammy Kershaw dubbed the All
in the Same Boat tour.
