Country music legend Charlie Louvin died on January 26, 2011 in Wartrace, Tennessee. Louvin was one half of the Louvin Brothers, the other being his brother Ira Louvin. They had several hits in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s with such songs as "Atomic Power," "I Don't Believe You've Met My Baby" or "My Baby's Gone" in the traditional harmony siniging style. Their music inspired artists like Emmylou Harris or Allison Krauss. After Ira's death, Charlie started a successful solo career and was a member of the Grand Oley Opry until his death. He was 83 years old.
