Louvin Project Rattlin’ On

Nashville Crew

George Jones and Others Working on the Louvin Film

The Charlie Louvin film crew spent some time in Nashville Jan. 20th talking with Mr. George Jones at his home, on the set with Marty Stuart, and John McCrea of Cake at the historic Ryman. They were gracious enough to be a part of our film, talk about some great history, personal moments on the road, and Louvin Brothers’ impact on their music and their lives. The filming will wrap after a couple more surprise guest interviews and be moving into post production, targeting a spring release. Please check back often as we’ll share how you can pre-order a copy and help Charlie’s family out.

Editor’s Note: Since this story was posted, we’ve learned of the passing of Charlie Louvin. Hopefully, this movie project with not only bring honor to Charlie and his legacy, but we hope it will also serve to help Charlie’s family to defray the costs of his battle with cancer. Rest in Peace, Charlie.
