RIP – Charlie Louvin

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Sad news coming in this morning that Charlie Louvin (Louvin Brothers), iconic country singer in the brother / close harmony tradition, lost his battle with pancreatic cancer. Over the years, we’ve been so very fortunate to get to know Charlie and work with him a bit. Highlights include: during the work on the Kris Kristofferson Please Don’t Tell Me How The Story Ends: The Publishing Demos 1968-72 (LITA 050) reissue, Kris and Charlie sat down for a great and wide ranging conversation, which you may listen to here. Another great memory is catching a set (on his 80th birthday) at SXSW a few years ago. Our deepest condolences go out to Charlie’s family. He will be missed.
