By the time Joe Diffie recorded this album, he was at the height of his country radio height, though he did barely scrape the Top 40 with his fifth and final single, "The Road Not Taken," from the album.
His first Gold-certified album, "Regular Joe" also served up a sophomore slump on the radio charts as there were "only" two Top 5 hits and no #1's out of the four singles and one failed to hit the Top 40. See our thoughts on the album here.
Released in 2010, "Homecoming: The Bluegrass Album" was his return to his youthful roots after his days as a country radio hitmaker were over. Sadly, it would prove to be the final all-new album released in his lifetime.
Eleven Hundred Springs isn’t doing anything new or unusual with these ten songs. It might sound a little revolutionary, though, to those too used to being bombarded by overproduced mainstream country radio songs. See our full review here!
