The “Country Unplugged Tour” is country music icons Joe Diffie and Mark Chesnutt sharing an evening of music that made them household names.
Joe Diffie is a multi-platinum-selling country artist who dominated the charts during a hot streak in the ’90’s. With chart-toppers like “Pickup Man,” “Third Rock From the Sun,” and “John Deere Green,” 13 albums and over 20 Top 10 singles to his credit, Diffie has little to prove at this point in his career, yet he still has a fire in his belly to make good country music.
A renowned songwriter in his own right, Diffie has hits for artists like Tim McGraw, Conway Twitty, and Jo Dee Messina to his credit, and has cuts on upcoming projects for “X Factor” winner Tate Stevens, Dylan Scott, and Tyler Farr among others. He is also hard at work on an album of brand new material, due out later this year on Bigger Picture Records.
Diffie has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry for over 20 years.
Mark Chesnutt is one of country’s true musical treasures. Critics have hailed him as a classic country singer of the first order and some of country music’s most elite entertainers, from George Jones to George Strait, echo the sentiment.
He is masterful in his natural ability to let his voice shape the words to create a moving musical motion picture (reminiscent of traditional country music standards such as Charlie Rich’s “Behind Closed Doors” and Vern Gosdin’s “Is It Raining At Your House”).
Chesnutt is easily identified for his string of hits including “Brother Jukebox,” “Old Flames Have New Names,” “Old Country,” “It Sure Is Monday,” “Almost Goodbye,” “Going Through The Big D,” and one of his biggest, “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing;” a song that held its position at the top of the charts for four consecutive weeks.
