We are feeling it now. Oklahoma boy Joe Diffie has passed away from this virus. My kids grew up around his parents. My prayers will be with his family. A great traditional voice will live on cuz I’m putting his music on now. Here’s a beer to ya, Joe. Go get your reward. -T
Fuck this entire thing and the people it’s killing. (Ignore this if you’re a healthcare/ essential angel). COULD Y’ALL, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS HOLY AND JOE DIFFIE, STAY INSIDE YOUR DAMN HOUSE. I love you, but fuck.
I’m devastated by the loss of my friend @JoeDiffieOnline. I can’t find adequate words. But the records he made, that voice, the twinkle in his eye, and our memories cannot be taken away by this disease. Please celebrate his music today everyone, go listen again to his records. pic.twitter.com/OYiyPTbLCy
I don’t know what to say. I am playing your songs loud and shedding a tear. Thank you for being a great friend and mentor. They say “don’t meet your hero’s” @JoeDiffieOnline that wasn’t the case with you. Rest easy my brother. Love ya.
As a huge fan and admirer, I’m really bummed to hear the passing of @JoeDiffieOnline due to covid-19. My prayers go out to his family during this tough time. “..my footsteps carry me away, but in my mind I’m always goin’ home..”
