"The term 'living legend' gets thrown around quite a bit, but it actually applies to Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Louvin. Charlie Louvin's influence on country, alt-country, and their many sub-genres is incalculable. The unique harmonies and lyrical folk poetry of the Louvin Brothers ('among the top duos in country music history' --All Music Guide) have inspired countless covers of their songs by such artists as Johnny Cash, Gram Parsons, The Byrds, Emmylou Harris, Uncle Tupelo and the Raconteurs (with Jack White). Produced by Mark Nevers (Lambchop, Calexico, Candi Staton) and Charlie Louvin, the new album was recorded in Spring/Summer 2006 in Nashville. It features guest performances by Elvis Costello, Jeff Tweedy, Will Oldham, Tom T. Hall, George Jones, Bobby Bare Sr., Tift Merritt, Marty Stuart, David Kilgour, and members of Bright Eyes, Lambchop, Superchunk, Blanche and Clem Snide, among others. The album features several Louvin Brothers classics as well as country favorites first popularized by Jimmie Rodgers, The Delmore Brothers, The Carter Family, and The Monroe Brothers."
