One year prior to his death at 84-years-old, the legendary country artist Charlie Louvin played an intimate gig at Nashville, Tennessee's tiny FooBar in front of a packed crowd of kids, elders, hippies, and rockers. Louvin was weak off the stage, battling cancer, but on the stage he was powerful and left the crowd chanting his name. It would be his last paid gig, and in an extensive interview the following morning, he shared many of the stories from his 60-year career. With appearances by Sonny Louvin, George Jones, Marty Stuart, John McCrea, Allison Krauss, and Emmylou Harris. THEATRICAL WORLD PREMIERE.
