Charlie Louvin, 1927-2011
0 comment Thursday, June 5, 2014 |

I just heard of the passing of Charlie Louvin, who died a few days ago at the age of 83.
Charlie, along with his brother Ira, was a legend in country music, although, sadly, he probably isn't known by many of today's country music fans. The Louvin Brothers were a very influential duo for later country musicians, with their unique harmonies and distinctive style.
There are a number of Louvin Brothers videos on YouTube, but I chose this one. I am partial to the song and to the performance in this old TV clip.
