Charlie Louvin Benefit Film Project Funded!
Though the project has reached its goal of $3,000, people are still being encouraged to donate, with the additional money going to improve the production and scope of the project, as well as paying Kickstarter the small fee they request to facilitate the process. There are also still incentives for people who donate certain amounts, including signed and numbered DVD copies, limited edition prints from Keith Neltner, and recognition in the credits of the DVD (a complete list of incentives are on the Kickstarter page).
The underground country faithful have risen up to support this project, including other artists. Lonesome Wyatt, whose music with Those Poor Bastards and other gothic country projects is inspired in part by The Louvin Brothers gospel style, has contributed to the project and asked other to do the same.
The Louvin Brothers were a huge influence on us and the greatest Hellfire and Damnation spewing country duo ever. Please help poor old Charlie Louvin…
Another artist, Rachel Brooke, who collaborated with Lonesome Wyatt on the album A Bitter Harvest, has also donated. She doesn’t need to speak to the influence of Charlie Louvin on her music, she’s proven it, including a cover of the Louvin’s “Knoxville Girl” on her first album.
Other contributors include Joe Fletcher & The Wrong Reasons, RNZ Magazine, The Cincinnati Heritage Music Foundation, and long-time Saving Country Music readers AJ Davis and Gillian (I’m sure there’s some I missed, don’t always know people’s screen vs. real names!)
Even if you didn’t contribute, but helped spread the word by telling friends and family, posting and reposting messages through social networks, pat yourself on the back! But remember, you can still contribute and help make this project even better, and take advantage of some great incentives.

GREAT NEWS! And I’m glad to be a part of it. Can’t wait to get the DVD. For me it’ll be the closest thing to ever seeing him live. Here’s to Charlie, Blake, Keith, and their Kickstarters!
