Today would’ve been the 85th birthday of Charlie Louvin, one half of the gospel-country legends the Louvin Brothers. A long time favorite of ours at Big Star, their recordings for both Columbia and Decca cemented them as one of the top names in country music, with their incredible vocal harmonies and spiritual depth found in every note they sung. Their trademark album, Satan Is Real, is a necessity for country music fans. Charlie passed away in 2011, but today we are raising our glass to him.
