Omtalt person The Louvin Brothers


“One of the most important and illuminating memoirs ever written by a country singer.” - Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal “I think I’ve already found my favorite book of 2012.” - Chris Talbott, Associated Press “Satan Is Real has the best-designed book cover of 2012 .” - Paper Magazine “The anecdotes alone offer significance to any person interested in the anthropology of Americana music. Magnanimous without feigning and brusque without malice, Charlie Louvin’s clear-eyed commentary is straightforward and unapologetic.” - Oxford American “Masterful [and] graceful.” - Alec Solomita, Wall Street Journal “Raw honesty, genuine grit, common sense, and smokin’ down-home flavor.” - Publishers Weekly “A real classic of Americana.” - Booklist “The mix of light and darkness that filled their music was mirrored in their lives.” - Ian Crouch, The New Yorker “[A] chilling portrait of a brilliant musician intent on self-annihilation.” - Kirkus “Grand themes of life, death, religion, salvation, damnation, human choices and, sometimes, joy.” - Randy Lewis, Los Angeles Times “Simple and plain-spoken, yet powerful and resonant.” - Daily Journal “There was something scary and washed in the blood about the sound of the Louvin Brothers.” - Emmylou Harris “Charlie…was a true punk, in the best sense of the word.” - Lucinda Williams “You can’t find anybody, I don’t think, that was not inspired by them.” - Vince Gill “They influenced everybody.” - Phil Everly “The Burritos’ favorite artists.” - Gram Parsons “The Louvin Brothers were my favorite when I was young and growing up in the business.” - Dolly Parton “Probably the greatest traditional country duo in history.” - Grove Dictionary of American Music “The most influential harmony team in the history of country music.” - Los Angeles Times “One of the pre-eminent brother acts in country music and an inspiration to several generations of rock musicians.” - New York Times
