RIP Charlie Louvin

Charlie Louvin died today at the age of 83 from complications of pancreatic cancer. One of the true legends of the golden age of country music, along with his late brother Ira, Charlie Louvin continued to record well after his brother's death. The influence of his body of work, both with his brother as the Louvin Brothers and without, is immeasurable. The Cosmic Americana movement of the late 60s and 70s and the alt-country movement of the early-80s through late 90s would not have been the . . .
