Country music icon Charlie Louvin has lost his battle with pancreatic cancer, aged 83. The beloved star, best known as a member of the Louvin Brothers duo with his sibling Ira, died at his home in Wartrace, Tennessee on Wednesday, January 26, according to his manager, Brett Steele.

Their hits included "When I Stop Dreaming", "Hoping That You're Hoping", "You're Running Wild" and 1965 chart-topper "I Don't Believe You've Met My Baby".
