Sad to report that Charlie Louvin, at the age of 83, passed away early this morning, after a long struggle with pancreatic cancer.

KDHX was honored to host Charlie Louvin in the Magnolia Avenue Studios in April 2007 for an epic and very special live session on Bluegrass Breakdown.

Louvin was a Country Music Hall of Famer and one of the most sublime voices in American music. After the death of his brother Ira, Louvin remained active throughout his later years, continuing to record and tour at a heady pace, and seeing some well-deserved recognition from a younger generation of fans of rock, folk and country music. He was a grand and warm gentleman, completely in love with singing and sharing his music with any audience that would listen.


I had the pleasure of interviewing Charlie twice: in 2007 and 2008; you may read the conversations here and here.
