Charlie Louvin

Born: 1927-07-07 - Died: 2011-01-26
Cause of Death:
Pancreatic Cancer

Death Summary: Louvin succumbed to complications from pancreatic cancer. He died in his home located in Wartrace, Tenn.

Who was Charlie Louvin : Charlie Louvin is one half of the legendary country music duo - The Louvin Brothers. He's been a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and 20 songs by The Louvin Brothers have been listed on the country music sales charts.

Louvin was born in Henagar, Alabama, one of seven children. The singing bug caught him when he was 8 years old, and continued singing throughout his life. His professional career began during his teenage years, when he partnered up with his brother Ira, and performed for local radio programs in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The duo originally sang gospel music exclusively. In 1945, Charlie took a break from the group to serve in World War II. Afterwards, the brothers moved to Knoxville, working as postal clerks while performing at night.

The Louvin brothers really hit their stride in the 1950's, when they branched off from exclusively singing gospel and released some secular recordings. Their fame rose to the point that they were invited to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. Then in 1955, they became official members.

The duo released numerous recordings, most of which reached the sales charts. Their influence would eventually inspire the styles of Emmylous Harris, Gram Parsons, and The Byrds.

During the 60's the brothers' popularity had slid, and then in 1965 Ira was killed in a car accident. Charlie continued to release music solo, and would continue to perform for the Grand Ole Opry himself.

In 2001, the Louvin Brothers were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. During this period, Louvin rebuilt his career. He released a CD of classic songs, and featured a new song which was a tribute to his brother. He also released more gospel CD's, pairing up with other famous musicians.

In July 2010, Louvin had surgery for Pancreatic cancer. The doctors were expecting a full recovery, but there ended up being complications.

Louvin is survived by his wife Betty, three sons, three sisters, and five grandchildren.

    Demorou 70 dias pra chegar, mas acredito que tenha sido a epoca do natal que dificultou. A calca e linda, cor exata, o tamanho 31 coube perfeitamente em mim, uso calca 40-42 no brasil. bem justa na panturrilha, mas acredito que va ceder um pouquinho, recomendo o produto e ja quero pedir outras cores.the size was sure, I bought size 27 equivalent to size 36 in Brazil. Beautiful!!
