Charles Esten, aka Deacon Claybourne from the Nashville TV series, heads for C2C London to play the Yamaha Music Stage on Friday March 11
as well as CMA Songwriters Series on Thursday March 10, 2016


American actor and singer-songwriter Charles Esten is heading to London for Country to Country 2016. He is the final performer announced for the Yamaha Music Stage (the additional stage inside the Main Arena at The O2, London) on Friday March 11, 2016.

Charles has already been announced for the CMA Songwriters Series on Thursday, March 10, 2016 at indigo at The O2 in London. Celebrating the art and craft of storytelling through song and the stories behind Country Music’s greatest hits, this CMA Songwriters Series will also feature Shane McAnally, Lori McKenna, Ashley Monroe, and Charlie Worsham.

Esten is one of the stars of the popular ABC Television Network series “Nashville” playing the role of Deacon Claybourne. But he actually made his stage debut in London, portraying Buddy Holly in the hit West End musical “Buddy”. In that role he performed for both The Queen at the Royal Variety Performance and the first President George Bush at the White House. Today, besides performing in “Nashville”, he is quickly gaining acclaim as a singer/songwriter in his own right.

He has performed at the Grand Ole Opry, the historic Ryman Auditorium, and Bluebird Café, as well as headlining the St. Jude Country Music Marathon Concert at the Bridgestone Arena. He is a featured artist on the eight successful “Nashville” soundtracks that have been released to date, two of which include “I Know How to Love You Now,” which he co-wrote with Deana Carter. Last summer Esten released his first independent single, “Hot One.”

Hi, I’m Annette, I have been a huge country music fan since the early 90s those were the days we were lucky enough to have CMT in the UK. I enjoy nothing more than listening to country music whilst having a cold beer (or a moonshine) with friends. I try to as many gigs as I can here in the UK and in the USA; I think of Nashville as my second home and I am lucky to have made some amazing friends in Tennessee. Think Country is something I am very proud of, I just want to share my love and passion of all things country music related with you all.
