Close Harmony Pioneer Charlie Louvin Dies at 83

Charlie Louvin, half of the country and gospel music duo the Louvin Brothers, has died at the age of 83 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. The singer had undergone surgery to treat the cancer in July, but his health had been declining steadily in recent weeks.
Along with his brother and musical partner Ira, Louvin was a pioneer of the country music genre known as close harmony. The duo were best known for their mid-Fifties and early Sixties hits "When I Stop Dreaming" and "I Don't Believe You've Met My Baby." Louvin was also a successful solo artist with hits such as the Top Five single "I Don't Love You Anymore" in 1964.
