Get ready for one of America’s great untold stories: the true saga of the Louvin Brothers, a mid-century Southern gothic Cain and Abel and one of the greatest country duos of all time. The Los Angeles Times called them “the most influential harmony team in the history of country music,” but Emmylou Harris may have hit closer to the heart of the matter, saying “there was something scary and washed in the blood about the sound of the Louvin Brothers.” For readers of Johnny Cash’s irresistible autobiography and Merle Haggard’s My House of Memories, no country music library will be complete without this raw and powerful story of the duo that everyone from Dolly Parton to Gram Parsons described as their favorites: the Louvin Brothers.

Satan is Real
Fantastic Autobiography of Charlie and Ira Louvin, and the heyday of Country music. Fantastic stories of the road and a duo that influenced a generation of singers!
Just like listening to Charlie
I had the pleasure of playing several venues where Charlie was performing as the mandolin player for Glen Bonham and Southern Tradition. He told us that he was writing this book. It is wonderfully written. It is written just like he talked-- phrasing, cussing, digression, smoking, and all. This is a treasure and could not have been delivered better. Great biography about one of the kindest, in his own way, people I've ever met.
