JOE DIFFIE HONORED

Joe Diffie has done wonderful work with the charity First Steps -- an organization that helps educate physically and mentally challenged children.

He has organized golf tournaments and concerts for the charity, raising over $600,000 for the cause that has a personal impact on him -- his own son was born with Down's Syndrome and attended the First Steps school until he was three years old.

Diffie was recently recognized for his charity involvement by Tennessee Governor Don Sundquist, and now Nashville Mayor Bill Purcell has decided to honor him also.

The mayor has declared Sunday, February 10 "Joe Diffie First Steps Day."

Diffie will be honored by the mayor and his representatives during the 10th annual "Country Steps In For First Steps," featuring performances by Wynonna, Cydi Thomson, Ricky Skaggs, Cledus T. Judd, Mark Chesnutt and Tracy Lawrence on Sunday evening at the Ryman Auditorium.
