Charlie Louvin, R.I.P.

Charlie Louvin, Country Singer, Dies at 83

“I just could not get enough of that sound,” the singer Emmylou Harris said of the Louvin Brothers’ music, speaking in an interview with The Observer, the British newsweekly, in January 2010. “I’d always loved the Everly Brothers, but there was something scary and washed in the blood about the sound of the Louvin Brothers.”

Loved their music

I had never heard of the Louvin Brothers until a few years ago. I heard one of their songs on a local station and bought the CD because of it. The song was called How's the World Treating You and was part of a tribute CD compilation of many of today's greatest singers. I listened to that CD and every song grew on me and I think it is one of my favorite CD's of all time.

Thanks for posting that RonBoyd. Ever since Emmylou Harris did a cover of "If I Could Only Win Your Love" as her first hit, I've been a fan of Louvin Brothers music.
