Whether singing about untarnished love in the enduring hit “John Deere Green,” the perennial appeal of “Pickup Man” or the heartbreak of dreams unrealized in “Ships That Don’t Come In,” Diffie’s songs have continually painted a portrait of real life with all its joy and angst.

A former Male Vocalist of the Year, Diffie has delivered five Billboard No. 1 singles and has been a member of Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry for 25 years. In the music business for over three decades, Diffie is releasing a new album (“I Got This”) in the spring.
