Country Singer Joe Diffie Dies Of Complications From Coronavirus

Country music singer Joe Diffie died Sunday due to complications from the coronavirus.

"GRAMMY-winning country music legend Joe Diffie passed away today, Sunday, March 29, from complications of coronavirus (COVID-19)," said a statement posted on Diffie's Instagram page on Sunday.

"It's with a sad heart that i have to post this," his wife Tara Terpening noted.

Tara, who married Diffie in 2018, also posted a black-and-white photo of the singer, smiling.

They have one daughter, Reaux. Diffie was married four times.

Diffie, 61, died just two days after he announced that he tested positive for the coronavirus.

Known for his lighthearted odes to country life that reached mainstream success in the 1990s, Diffie released seven studio albums, a Christmas album, and a greatest-hits package for Epic Records.

Among them, 1993's Honky Tonk Attitude and 1994's Third Rock from the Sun are certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani Share Acoustic Version Of 'Nobody But You'

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have released a new acoustic version of "Nobody But You" and an accompanying video.

"Hope yall love it! Our #NobodyButYou acoustic version is out now. Link in story. @gwenstefani," Shelton wrote on Instagram alongside an intimate black and white photo of the couple sporting ball caps and looking over a fence.

The song, co-written by Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Tommy Lee James, appears on Shelton's compilation album Fully Loaded: God's Country, which was released in December.

The visual shows the couple, sitting on a back porch and surrounded by picturesque hills, singing together. Shelton, clad in blue jeans and a button-up shirt, is seen strumming on his acoustic guitar, while Stefani is seen tapping her foot along to the tune.

"I don't wanna live without you / I don't wanna even breathe / I don't wanna dream about you / Wanna wake up with you next to me," the pair sing in the chorus while locking eyes. "I don't wanna go down any other road now / I don't wanna love nobody but you / Looking in your eyes now / If I had to die now / I don't wanna love nobody but you."

The song, which is the couple's third duet, has been moving higher and higher on the Billboard's country charts since its release. It is currently No. 12 on the Country Airplay chart after 11 weeks.

The track has garnered close to half a million views on YouTube.

Shelton and Stefani performed the duet during the 2020 Grammy Awards. On March 19, they teased the new version of the song on their social media pages, sharing photos of its cover art.
