Over the last few years, singer/songwriter and actor Charles Esten - best known for his roles as Ward Cameron on the NETFLIX global hit show Outer Banks, and Deacon Claybourne in ABC/MT's Nashville, has performed hundreds of live concerts, including multiple headline tours in the US, Germany. Amsterdam, and UK, including the Royal Albert Hall. In early 2020, his main stage performance as part of the popular Country2Country festival in Europe was cut short by the pandemic. After that, for over a year during lockdown, he entertained fans virtually with his weekly FacebookLive Quarantine Livestream that to-date has drawn almost 1.5 million total views. Gradually, he has been able to resume live performances, most notably on the Grand Ole Opry, where he has made over 150 appearances to-date. He was excited to open at The Ryman for Deanna Carter in November.
In his adopted hometown of Nashville, Esten serves as the National Honorary Spokesperson for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual "Light The Night" Walk, and as a board member and volunteer for Musicians On Call. When not filming or touring, he continues to write and record his own music with over 10 million streams to date, and a 2018 Guinness World Record for releasing 54 original songs (available on iTunes, and on Spotify) once a week, for 54 consecutive weeks. He is currently working on selecting some of that new music for release. In May he released a new single, WORST DAY - a duet with Julia Cole (CMT Next Women of Country, Class of '22) - Esten says, "This song is a flat-out upbeat banger about the joy of having that someone you love right there beside you in the good times, and even more especially, in the hard times too!" Esten is thrilled to be returning to Smith Mountain Lake!
