Joe Logan Diffie (born December 28, 1958) is an American country music singer.

In his last two years in high school, Diffie played football, baseball, and golf in addition to running track; in his senior year he was recognized as Best All-Around Male Athlete.
His most recent album, Homecoming: The Bluegrass Album, was released in late 2010 through Rounder.
His style is defined by a neotraditionalist country influence with a mix of novelty songs and ballads.
He also released one studio album each through Monument Records, Broken Bow Records, and Rounder Records.
