Joe Diffie Show Combines Country Music and Huge Laughs
The Joe Diffie Show is a part of Yakov Smirnoff’s Theatre in Branson, Missouri. The show began in 2007, when Yakov Smirnoff was looking for a country music act that many Branson visitors would like to see. Branson, Missouri is home to many theaters that offer live shows many days of the week. Joe Diffie is one of several country music stars that have performed at theaters in Branson.
Joe Diffie is a country music star that hails from the state of Oklahoma. Some of his better known songs include “Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox” and “John Deere Green.” Since he signed his first country music deal, Diffie has toured the United States with a number of other Nashville acts. The Joe Diffie Show was added to the country music theater’s agenda after Diffie began thinking about spending more time closer to home.
Diffie said that he wanted to start spending more time with his family. As a result, he began cutting hs tour dates in the later part of 2007. The Joe Diffie Show allowed Branson visitors to see the country music star up close and gave Diffie more quality time with loved ones. The show premiered on September 6, 2008. Shows are featured at the theater from Tuesday through Saturday, beginning at 8pm.
Each show features Joe Diffie and other friends and family members, as well as comedian Paul Harris. Yakov Smirnoff has been performing for Branson tourists and locals for over ten years.
