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.
