Well it’s about time!! The real Joe Diffie has stood up, grabbed his guitar and wrote his own country song in reaction to Jason Aldean’s hit single ‘1994.’ Diffie released a video to his new song he wrote with country rap group Jawga Boyz called ‘Girl Ridin’ Shotgun,’ and Diffie is calling the song “A response” to Jason Aldean‘s ‘1994.’ Introduced to Diffie by his management team, the Jawga Boyz Derek Thrasher (D-Thrash) together with Diffie wrote ‘Girl Ridin’ Shotgun’. “Derek penned all the ‘hick hop’ parts of the song and writer Phil O’Donnell and I concentrated on writing the chorus, so it was a true collaboration,” Diffie says.
The song starts off with Aldean’s hits '1994.' Diffie says he’s a fan of Aldean, and thankful for the attention he’s received after the track from Aldean’s ‘Night Train’ CD was released. Keep your eyes open and try to spot cameos from about 10 different country superstars early in the video, and for a full album from Diffie later this year.
