Country legend Charlie Louvin died today at 83 from pancreatic cancer. Charlie's music was influential across time and genres, and The Louvin Brothers were one of the greatest duos in country music history. Charlie continued to record and tour after the tragic death of his brother Ira in 1965, and his cancer diagnosis did not diminish his work ethic. He played shows as recently as December and was booked for future dates. He will truly be missed here in Nashville and across the world.
