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.
