Known best for his role as Deacon Claybourne on the hit television show NASHVILLE, Charles Esten was born in Pittsburgh, PA, and 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. It was in that role, he was honored to perform for H.R.M Queen Elizabeth in the Royal Variety Performance.
Since then, aside from NASHVILLE, he has performed on WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY, as well as appearing on many other films and television shows including THE POSTMAN, NYPD BLUE, ER, BIG LOVE, and the American version of THE OFFICE. Coming up will be a recurring role on TNT’s TELL ME YOUR SECRETS, and Netflix’s new series Outer Banks.
It was NASHVILLE that reopened Esten’s musical career, and over the course of the last six years he has performed hundreds of live concerts, including three sold out NASHVILLE IN CONCERT shows at the Royal Albert Hall. He has performed in the O2 Arena at the C2C Festival, at the CMC Festival in Australia, STAGECOACH in Indio, CA, CMA Fest in Nashville, as well as the Bluebird Café, The Ryman Auditorium, and the Grand Ole Opry where, on July 20th, he made his 100th appearance. In January of this year he completed his first solo twelve-city tour through a sold out UK and Netherlands, and standing room only shows in Germany. He returns to the UK in October 2019.
Esten made musical history when he earned a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for his #EverySingleFriday campaign which yielded 54 original songs that he wrote, recorded, and released, once a week, for 54 consecutive weeks. The songs are all available on iTunes, and on Spotify, where his music has already been streamed worldwide nearly 8 million times.
Married for 27 years, Esten and his wife Patty have three children – Taylor, Chase and Addie – and make their home in Nashville, TN. Addie is a survivor of childhood leukemia, and her journey has inspired her parents’ passionate involvement in fundraising for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Esten serves as the National Honorary Spokesperson for the Light the Night Walk. Over the last 6 years, their Light the Night Walk team – Team Addie – has raised over one million dollars in the fight against blood cancer.
A Road and a Radio
Co-written with J.T. Harding, and produced with Bobby Hamrick, “A Road and A Radio” is a rocking country ode to the open road and the music that has long been its soundtrack.
Regarding his new single, Charles Esten says, ”The freedom and spirit-regenerating power of being on the open road with the person and the music you love isn’t just a piece of American mythology. It’s real. This song attempts to capture a little bit of that. It would be nice to think that maybe when somebody out there, in an attempt to get away from it all, decides to get 'a song turned up' and 'a ragtop down,' this just might be one of the songs they turn up.”

This is a review of his recent headline show at the Royal Albert Hall in London in October:
Here are his socials:
"I believe that every person has been given a unique story and gift that, when shared, can leave a legacy that echoes into eternity. I will always write and release songs that communicate what is important to me and give a glimpse into my true story. I definitely want my music to be entertaining, but, more than anything, I want it to be an inspiration to those who hear it."
Country music artist Stephanie Owens captivates audiences with her compelling voice, contagious smile, and magnetic stage presence, which flow from her passionate heart and vision. Her music creatively captures both the raw vulnerability and bold intentionality of her personality and character.
Stephanie independently released her debut EP May of 2018. Each of the five songs on the recording were co-written by Owens and highlight her dynamic voice and eclectic musical tastes. The debut single, “Heart Taker,” immediately captures listeners with its 1980s-throwback countrified groove.
