Joe Diffie At Grand Ole Opry
Joe Diffie's ability to sing rollicking novelty songs and softer ballads have brought him great success in country music. Diffie pairs strong songwriting skills with a warm voice to create fun, accessible music.
Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to a musical family, Diffie was performing in an aunt's band when he was only four years old. He spent much of his life moving around the country, and moved to Nashville after the foundry he was working at closed. Between working shifts at the Gibson guitar warehouse, he wrote and performed demo songs. Diffie found success as a songwriter before becoming a solo recording artist. He's co-written songs for some of Nashville's biggest stars like Jo Dee Messina, Tim McGraw, and Marty Stuart.
Diffie has four gold or platinum albums, and 35 of his songs have made Billboard's Hot Country chart. Diffie's No. 1 hits include “If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets),” “Pickup Man,” “Third Rock From the Sun,” “Home,” and “Bigger Than the Beatles.” Joe Diffie was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1993.
