Diffie, who was approved as headliner for the Independence Day festival at last week’s Russellville City Council meeting, is described on his website as a “multi-platinum-selling artist (who) has never slowed down – writing, touring and recording a myriad of projects … with chart-toppers like ‘Pickup Man,’ ‘Third Rock from the Sun’ and ‘John Deere Green’ and 13 albums and over 20 Top 10 singles to his credit.”

Diffie will perform until 9:30 p.m., at which time Cummings and city officials will remark prior to the fireworks spectacular presented by Alabama Pyrotechnics.
