About this product
- DescriptionCharlie Louvin was a good, god-fearing, church-going Christian gospel singer. His brother Ira was t. A hard drinker, Ira was kwn for frequently smashing his mandolin onstage; he was banned from performing at the Grand Ole Opry for several weeks after a scandal in which his wife shot him five times when he tried to choke her with a telephone cord; and he got into an altercation with Presley while they were on tour together after calling the young rock-and-roller's music trash. Ira lived fast and died young, and his brother Charlie recalls visiting his grave, hearing his brother's voice, and singing one last duet with him. Satan Is Real is the incredible tale of the sixty-plus-year career of Charlie Louvin, the timeless murder ballads of the Louvin Brothers, and an epic tale of two brothers bound together by love, hate, alcohol, blood, and music.
