Charlie Louvin made country music history in the 1950s and '60s as half of the legendary Louvin Brothers duo. As an octogenarian, Louvin continues to uphold the legacy he established more than half a century earlier. The follow-up to his self-titled 2007 "comeback" album, STEPS TO HEAVEN finds Louvin revisiting the gospel sounds that helped him get his start (the Louvins started out performing spiritual material), but he adds a new twist. The veteran country vocalist is joined here by a gospel choir, which is a move he'd never made on any of his past recordings. They tackle a batch of traditional spiritual tunes as well as a couple of Louvin Brothers oldies, and while Louvin's voice is a tad weathered, it's all the richer-sounding for the incredible amount of experience he's soaked up over the decades.
Artist Overview
Until their split in 1963, Charlie Louvin was one half of the popular country duo the Louvin Brothers alongside older brother Ira. Their hits included "Cash on the Barrelhead" and the 1959 country gospel album SATAN IS REAL. Following Ira's 1965 death, Louvin began a solo career, maintaining an impressive balance between the Nashville gentry (regularly appearing on the Grand Ol' Opry) and the renegade alt-country scene. In 2007, at the age of 80, Louvin signed with the alt-country label Tompkins Square Records and released a self-titled album of duets with acolytes like Elvis Costello, Will Oldham and George Jones.
