What a great voice. His "Ships that don't come in" was one of my all time favorites.
Rest in Peace, Joe.

So sorry to hear this. I used to see him every day when he worked at the Foundry, in Duncan, OK. He and his family were regular customers at my sister-in-law's restaurant.

He will be missed.

So sad. My day today was meeting with the funeral home, then picking out a grave site at the cemetery, and now this. Rest In Peace Joe. Heaven is filling up.

A truly exceptional singer. He had chops and great tone.

Barry Blackwood, 'Ships That Don't Come In' is one of my favourite recordings by anybody; it's a fine song, too.

Joe did a few too many 'good ole boy' songs for my taste but I have his entire catalog nonetheless. A voice of rare quality.

RIP, Joe Diffie, and my sympathies to his family. There must be a good band that no longer has a gig, too. Sad

I have to agree that "Ships That Don't Come In" is one of the greats. Great song, great singer, great recording. So sorry that Joe has left us.

A special talent for sure. My favovite. A night to remember.[/u] [/u]I also enjoyed, Bigger than the Beatles. He sings the harmonies at end just like the close harmony on the last chord of She loves you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZJCDfEcFh8

It's suddenly struck me that, in too short a space of time, we've lost two of country music's truly exceptional vocalists: Daryle Singletary and now Joe Diffie.

The loss of them both represents a major loss to music.

So sad. Here's a Harlan Howard and Don Cook song masterfully played by Paul Franklin and sung by Joe Diffie:
