As the virus began to cause cancellations, Joe was one of the many artists that had to cancel shows for the near future. He took to Instagram to share his disappointment with fans.

“I just want to say to all the fans, the show cancellations are not my idea of a good time,” he wrote when the cancellations came in.”Promoters, venues etc are postponing these events, as expected with everything going on. These shows that are postponed are affecting all of us musicians and our bands, crews, drivers, etc. Please pray for all of us and hope we can get America back on track and back to normal. We definitely will miss all of the fans and we plan on rescheduling any shows postponed! Thanks for being the greatest fans ever! Stay well and see you out there soon!!!”

Joe recently released Joe, Joe, Joe Diffie!, his first-ever vinyl LP and celebrated a career milestone of more than 25 years as a member of the historic Grand Ole Opry.

We wish Joe Diffie well and hope for a speedy recovery.
