Charles Whitstein had a particular place in Charlie Louvin’s life. Not only did he help to rekindle the music of the Louvin Brothers with a debut album with his late brother Robert, he stood beside Charlie and sang tenor – Ira’s roll – on stages worldwide.
He remembers his other ‘brother’ ..
“With the sadness of Charlie’s passing I feel I’ve lost more than just a special friend, but another brother whom I have idolized, respected and loved deeply since childhood—such unique talent that remains etched in my soul.
I’m so honored that Charlie gave me the opportunity to travel the world with him as part of the great ‘Louvin Brothers Music Celebration Tour’. We shared so many special times together. Truly an end of a special era.
With thoughts and prayers to wife Betty and the Louvin family.”
