Charlie Louvin, half of the Louvin Brothers duo whose harmonies inspired fellow country and pop singers for decades, died early Wednesday due to complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 83.
When Charlie Louvin paired his voice with his brother Ira's on their first recordings in the late 1940s, they released a sound wave that still ripples through music nearly six decades later.
"I can remember my brother and I singing together when I was five and he was eight years old," Louvin told The Associated Press. "He already knew how, and he was teaching me."
"I'm not afraid of dying," Louvin told The Associated Press in 2010, a few days after the diagnosis. "We're all going to do that. And I've had 83 years of almost uninterrupted good health, so I know that's not by accident. So I've been blessed that long, and I could use a couple more."
