In a newly-resurfaced video posted to YouTube, it’s not hard to see that the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.
Several years ago, Joe Diffie’s daughter Kara joined her dad on stage at the Grand Ole Opry to sing “Amazing Grace,” and amazing it was!
Diffie introduced his daughter and she took to the mic to start the song, acapella. Her voice filled the Opry and the audience clapped and cheered at how beautiful it was. It was definitely a goosebump-worthy rendition of “Amazing Grace.”
The country music community was rocked when Joe Diffie passed away at the age of 61 on Sunday (March 29) from complications of COVID-19.
Joe Diffie was a country music icon of the ’90s with hits like “Pickup Man,” “If The Devil Danced In Empty Pockets,” and “John Deere Green.” Diffie charted a total of 18 Top Ten singles throughout the decade. In 1993, Joe was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry and in January of 2019, he celebrated his 25th anniversary of being a member with his daughter Kara by his side.
