    Country Star Charlie Louvin Dies - He was 83 and had pancreatic cancer

    Charlie Louvin, who is one half of the Louvin Brothers country duo, has died due to complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 83-years-young.

    Louvin, a country music hall of fame singer, died at his home in Tennessee on Wednesday.

    Louvin was diagnosed with cancer last year and underwent surgery, but continued to schedule performances and even put out an album. That's why I said he was 83-years-young and vibrant because he worked up until the very end.

    R.I.P., Charlie.
