Joe Diffie makes a triumphant return to the honky tonk with his new song, “As Long As There’s a Bar,” states Jon Freeman from Rolling Stone Country. The Grammy and CMA-winning country music legend’s new single exclusively premiered on Rolling Stone Country and is available for download now.
“The lively, hard-twanging tune” was written by Jessica Pearson, Galen Griffin, and former Trick Pony member Keith Burns. “As Long As There’s A Bar” is Diffie’s third single from his forthcoming album set for release later this year via Silverado Records and follows the release of title track, “I Got This” and emotionally charged “Quit You.” The album was produced by Phil O’Donnell, who produced Diffie’s “Girl Ridin’ Shotgun” which has garnered more than 15 million views on Youtube and 2.4 million streams on Spotify.
“We’re over the moon about getting this new single out to the world. The imagery in this song makes you think about your neighborhood watering hole… that safe place where you know people and you’re always welcome. This is Joe Diffie doing what he does best!” said Scott Thomas, Silverado Records, CEO.
The Oklahoma Music Hall of Famer has been playing to sold out crowds across the country, playing fan-favorite hits as well as new material from his upcoming release. Diffie recently celebrated a pinnacle career milestone of 25 years as a member of the historic Grand Ole Opry.
With chart-toppers like “Pickup Man,” “Third Rock from the Sun,” and “John Deere Green,” Diffie’s reign includes 13 albums and more than 20 Top 10 hits to his credit. A renowned songwriter in his own right, Diffie penned hits for artists like Tim McGraw, Conway Twitty, and Jo Dee Messina to his credit.
