The Mill Town Music Hall family is deeply saddened to learn that country music singer Joe Diffie passed away over the weekend of COVID-19. The 61-year old was scheduled to perform at Mill Town Music Hall on Nov. 21.
“Joe Diffie was a legend in country music and we were so excited to host him at Mill Town Music Hall,” sais Steve Bennett, General Manager at Mill Town Music Hall. “May God be with him and comfort his family and friends during this difficult time.”
As a reminder, Diffie had a string of hits in the 1990s with chart-topping Ballards and singles like “Home” and “Pickup Man.” The Tulsa-born was a Grand Ole Opry member for more than 25 years and was best known for his hits such as “Honky Tonk Attitude,” “Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I Die),” “Bigger Than the Beatles” and “If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets).”
Diffie’s music and vibrant personality will live on forever in the hearts, and the music halls, of country music fans.
