Part of a Charlie Louvin interview:

"Y’all had a nice run there in 57, 58, 59…how did the rock and roll scene affect the Louvin Brothers?

Well, it was late 55. We worked 100 days with Elvis Presley. Actually, when we first started the tour Elvis was opening for us. Hank Snow was on that tour and so were some of the Carter Family. See, Hank put up fifty-percent of the money to buy Elvis’ recording contract and his manager’s contract. Mr. Parker played dirty, very simple. For example, he’d give away 30 or 40 tickets to the little Woolworth workers and say ‘you don’t have to pay nothing to get in. all you have to do is yell ‘We want Elvis.’ They did that to Hank Snow for three or four days and Parker’s dream came true and Hank said, ‘I don’t want anything to do with the punk. Just give me my $25,000 back and I’m out of here.’ Of course, that’s exactly what Mr. Parker wanted to hear. So he got him out and that gave him fifty-percent ownership of Elvis for the rest of Elvis’ life. Even after he died until Elvis’ ex-wife sued him. You can’t keep getting fifty percent of something when the star is dead."
