Joe Diffie's Neighborhood Had a Tractor Parade to Celebrate His Life

 

Source - News of country music star Joe Diffie's passing is felt around the country, but perhaps nowhere more than his own Nolensville neighborhood, where his neighbors weren't going to let the current climate get in the way of their goodbyes.

From the social distance of their own trucks, cars, and green John Deeres, Nolensville paid tribute to the 90s country music legend in a drive-by parade.

"[A] Song comes on the radio and you just know all the words by heart," Mick Hill told News4 he's a loyal, lifelong fan from the driver's seat of a John Deer. "And it’s just part of you, part of life."

"Shock I think possibly would be the best way to describe that," family friend Lisa Garramone said of the news of his passing. It came Sunday. Diffie went public with his Coivd-19 diagnosis Friday. He was 61.

"I was crushed. I was crushed," Hill said.

What a sight. Tons of John Deere tractors driving down the road, all playin' Joe Diffie hits. There won't be a a funeral right now because of CDC rules but don't tell that to the community of Nolensville, Tennessee. This is why country music is the best. 

Rest in Peace, Joe. ❤️
