The beautiful and tragic saga of the Louvin Brothers—one of the most legendary country duos of all time—is one of America’s great untold stories. Charlie Louvin was a good, god-fearing, churchgoing singer, but his brother Ira had the devil in him, and was known for smashing his mandolin to splinters onstage, cussing out Elvis Presley, and trying to strangle his third wife with a telephone cord. Satan is Real is the incredible tale of Charlie Louvin’s sixty-five-year career, the timeless murder ballads of the Louvin Brothers, and an epic tale of two brothers bound together by love, hate, alcohol, blood, and music.

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.
