Charles Esten celebrated his #EverySingleFriday music milestone with a concert last month at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s CMA Theater. The two-hour musical experience, called “One Single Year,” was attended by industry and fans alike.
Introduced by CMT’s Cody Alan, Charles and his band Sixwire (Steve Mandile, Andy Childs, John Howard, Chuck Tilley and Steve Hornbeak, with Steve Hinson on steel guitar) were welcomed to the stage with a rousing standing ovation after which they played, “This Town Is Ours.” The concert ended with an encore that kept fans on

Born in Pittsburgh, PA, Charles “Chip” Esten grew up in Alexandria, VA. After starting his acting career in Los Angeles, he was pleased to make his theatrical debut in London, portraying Buddy Holly in the hit West End musical “Buddy” – a role in which he was honored to perform for H.R.M Queen Elizabeth and then, for President and Mrs. George H.W. Bush at The White House.
Since then, he has appeared in numerous roles in films and on television, most notably on “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”, “The Office”, and most recently as Deacon Claybourne on CMT’s “Nashville.” In June, Charles was honored to host the 2017 CMT Music Awards.
In 2014, 2015, 2016 and again this summer, he joined his cast-mates in headlining the “Nashville in Concert” tour with sold-out shows across the US, the UK, and Ireland. You can see Charles in the new Carl’s Jr. ad campaign, and he remains the proud National Honorary Chair for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s annual Light the Night Walk.
