Charlie Louvin dies at 83

Country singer Charlie Louvin passed away yesterday (January 26) at the age of 83.


A big influence on the country-era Byrds, he co-wrote "The Christian Life" with his brother Ira, a song The Byrds covered on their "Sweetheart Of The Rodeo" LP from 1968.

Gram Parsons (who brought the song to The Byrds) also covered the Louvins' "Cash On The Barrelhead" on his "Grievous Angel" LP.
