The three of them each stopped by The Country Fest at Clay’s Park Resort in North Lawrence, Ohio, for their own set, and Dierks was one of the headliners for the weekend.
Though their tour doesn’t officially start for a few more weeks in mid-August, Dierks and Riley took the opportunity to get some practice in with an electric performance of Joe Diffie’s classic 90’s hit “John Deere Green.”
Of course, the original version was released in 1993 as the third single from Joe’s album Honky Tonk Attitude. It was written by Dennis Linde and peaked at #5 on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Songs chart. It’s a damn crime against humanity that it never went #1.
Riley has covered the song on his own before as a tribute to Joe when he passed away last year, but this time he and Dierks took turns singing different verses and the crowd seemed to absolutely love it.
You really can’t go wrong with two super talented musicians and a classic ’90s jam like this one:
