Charlie Louvin

Charlie Louvin died a few days ago.  Tipper, of The Blind Pig and the Acorn, had a story to tell about the Louvins.  And yet another story.
I sent the link to Cliff, and he went to Youtube and listened to several versions of "How's The World Treating You".  
Nobody seems to have given the Louvin Brothers any credit for the song they wrote.    
I will admit Allison Krause and James Taylor did it justice.  So did Jim Reeves, who does Cliff's favorite version.  
Like Tipper, I hate it when the writer of the song gets little credit.  But that's just me and Tipper, I suppose.

Thanks for sharing this. I loved the Allison Kraus - James Taylor version. This is the first that I've heard the song.
