Country music singer Joe Diffie died Sunday due to complications from the coronavirus.

"GRAMMY-winning country music legend Joe Diffie passed away today, Sunday, March 29, from complications of coronavirus (COVID-19)," said a statement posted on Diffie's Instagram page on Sunday.

"It's with a sad heart that i have to post this," his wife Tara Terpening noted.

Tara, who married Diffie in 2018, also posted a black-and-white photo of the singer, smiling.

They have one daughter, Reaux. Diffie was married four times.

Diffie, 61, died just two days after he announced that he tested positive for the coronavirus.

Known for his lighthearted odes to country life that reached mainstream success in the 1990s, Diffie released seven studio albums, a Christmas album, and a greatest-hits package for Epic Records.

Among them, 1993's Honky Tonk Attitude and 1994's Third Rock from the Sun are certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
