Don't Forget our great Mexican Entrees Mid America Inn Restaurant»823-2G7O If Diffie's career has lacked anything, it might be the awards and recognition that have come the way of artists who perform, as one publication described it, "gut- wrenching ballads that sound like future classics." By constrast, "Third Rock From the Sun" the tale of small-town foibles, provoked gut-wrenching belly laughs. Likewise there's the funky and funny "Back To The Cave," linking a Stone Age pickup scene to a Texas bar a million years later with the same primal dating game. As a result, Diffie has had nine No. 1 hits but has watched Vince Gill take home male vocalist hpn- ors at country music award shows. Unusual for a singer lauded as one of Nashville's best voices, with a range from baritone growl to a ringing high tenor. Diffie calls country legend George Jones "a huge influence." "His inflection, his tonality, the feeling and the way he emotes onto tape — that's one of the most difficult things to do," Diffie said. Jones, he said, even paid him a compliment. At an appearance, the grand old man of country came up to Diffie and smiled. "Son, you sure can sing a 'blan- kety, blank' country song," Jones told him. "When you get George Jones complimenting you, man that's something," Diffie said. Diffie said he dreamed of being successful as a country singer but admitted his career has gone further than he ever imagined. Even living the good life in Nashville, Diffie is still, as is the title of his second album, a "regular Joe." He mows and fertilizes his own lawn and takes care of the cars. The money his career has earned him has been a nice perk, he said, a contrast to the days he shopped for bargains and put used tires on his vehicle. "What I do is kind of a strange concept," Diffie reflected. "It's like advertising. You're selling air, there's nothing really tangible. That's why it's just kind of neat to get out and spread mulch and do something in the yard." PORK TENDERLOIN Small Fries & Small Drink only &Kirwin 823-8066 DICKINSON THEATRES is answering.
