Charlie Louvin On World Cafe
The Louvin Brothers were mainstays on the Grand Ole Opry in the 1950s and '60s, and their harmonies influenced countless alternative country artists, including Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello and The Byrds.
Louvin spoke with World Cafe host David Dye in 2007 about "shape note singing," his lengthy career and other anecdotes, including what it was like to meet a teenage Johnny Cash. Copyright 2011 WXPN-FM. To see more, visit http://www.xpn.org/.
