Joe Diffie Returns With New Single 'Girl Ridin' Shotgun'

(Radio.com) Joe Diffie is no stranger to success. During his 1990s heyday, the Tulsa native sold records by the millions and hit the country Top Ten many times over with songs such as "Bigger Than the Beatles," "Third Rock from the Sun," "Honky Tonk Attitude," "Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I Die)" and "John Deere Green."

Diffie's new single is called "Girl Ridin' Shotgun," and it features Diffie alongside D-Thrash of the Jawga Boyz. The video for the song features an impressive number of cameos, too.

Musically, the song shares more in common with the Southern-fried country/hip-hop sound of Colt Ford than it does with the bulk of Diffie's best-known singles. Which is a good thing, and shows Diffie is looking to mine new territory and not simply rehash his previous success.

"My manager called me and said 'There's a group in from Georgia called the Jawga Boyz, and they do hick-hop. Would you be interested in writing with them?'," Diffie explained to Billboard. "I said 'Sure, why not.' So, we got together, and wrote this song called 'Girl Ridin' Shotgun,' and everybody else started getting excited about it."

As D-Thrash says at the start of the video, "C'mon Joe, it's time to stand up." Check it out here.
