Joe Diffie Tests Positive For Coronavirus

Country artist Joe Diffie, 61, has tested positive for COVID-19, the novel coronavirus, he said via a statement.

“I am under the care of medical professionals and currently receiving treatment. My family and I are asking for privacy at this time. We want to remind the public and all my fans to be vigilant, cautious and careful during this pandemic,” Diffie said.

Diffie has released 13 albums and earned over 20 Top 10 hits during his career, including radio favorites “If The Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets),” “John Deere Green,” and “Third Rock From The Sun.” He recently released his first vinyl LP, titled Joe, Joe, Joe Diffie! (the title pays homage to Jason Aldean’s tribute track “1994”) and celebrated 25 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

The United States now leads the world in the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus, with more than 93,000 cases in the U.S. and more than 1,400 people in the U.S. have died from the virus.
