Charlie Louvin (2007 album)

Many young alt-country and rock artists have lately championed the compelling mix of harmony and severity The Louvin Brothers trademarked in the 1950s and early ’60s, so this album of duets pairing surviving brother Charlie, 79, with edgy singers like Will Oldham and Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy is more of a natural fit than it might seem at first blush.

Charlie blends more smoothly with old hands George Jones, Tom T. Hall and Bobby Bare, who also make appearances here, but his teamings with relative whippersnappers like Elvis Costello and Clem Snide’s Eef Barzalay also click nicely.
