As Michael Metivier said last year, “hearing an 80-plus-year-old man sing about disastrous young love, drinkin’ and murder, also adds a different dimension to the experience than hearing it from artists around the same age as the songs’ characters. It’s the wisdom of a life that has seen enough tragedy to understand that it remains both mysterious and inevitable, and worth singing about.” He’s talking about country music veteran and Grand Ole Opry member Charlie Louvin. Here’s a song from 2008’s Sings Murder Ballads & Disaster Songs.
