The European Country Music Association revealed nominees for its annual awards show and "Long Gone Loner", a powerful duet by Slovak band Peter & The Rowers with country superstar Joe Diffie earned a nod in the Vocal Collaboration of the Year category. Last year's big winners Peter & The Rowers, who received eight major awards including Artist of the Year and Band of the Year in 2008, got two additional nominations in the European Artist of the Year and Band of the Year categories. Other nominees include Alan Jackson, Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley and Mark Chesnutt.

Last summer the duet "Long Gone Loner" topped the ECMA Top 100 chart for two weeks, which turned into an impressive comeback for Joe Diffie on the European country radio. In addition to the success of the duet with the Slovak band, European radio stations started playing Diffie's earlier hits and "Third Rock From The Sun" even reached Top 10 in several countries. "Long Gone Loner" is featured as bonus track on Joe Diffie's Ultimate Hits.
