Joe Diffie Is OK After Bus Fire


Joe Diffie is the latest in a long string of artists to have a tour bus catch fire. Luckily, no one was hurt in the blaze, which took place this morning (Aug. 31) en route to a tour date in Independence, Mo.

“Had a small bus fire this morning at 3:15,” Joe wrote on his Facebook page, also posting a picture of some of the damage. “Had to stop and evacuate everyone. Scary for a minute! All ok now! Thanks to everyone at Vernell’s Truck Stop for getting us back on the road!

After replacing what looks to be a few charred wires, the band was on its way to the show, which should go on as scheduled.

There seem to be an increased numbers of incidents on tour buses this year alone. In January, Lee Brice woke up to find his bus in flames. Jerrod Niemann barely escaped a blaze that ended with an explosion in March. And Chris Young‘s tour bus went up in a cloud of smoke back in July.

Joe isn’t letting this setback slow him down. After tonight’s show, he’s headed to Snoqualmie, Wash., for a show tomorrow (Sept. 1).
