BIOGRAPHY

(Click for Full Bio)

Charles Esten stars on "Nashville" in the role of Deacon Claybourne.  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.” In that role, he was honored to perform for H.R.M Queen Elizabeth and then, for President and Mrs. George H.W. Bush at both The Kennedy Center and The White House. 

Esten has performed more than 100 live shows over the course of the last year, all while filming "Nashville" 10 months out of the year.  He has performed at CMA Fest, Stagecoach, the C2C Festival in London, the CMC Festival in Australia, the Ryman Auditorium, the Bridgestone Arena, Carnegie Hall, the White House, the Country Music Hall of Fame, Royal Albert Hall, the O2, and the Grand Ole Opry — where he made his 100th Opry show, July 20th.  

This summer, Charles kicked off the long-running CMA Fest from Nissan Stadium in Nashville and this summer he headlined his first solo shows in Germany.

In addition to his role on “Nashville,” he has appeared in many films and television shows, including "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" "The Office,” hosted the 2017 CMT Awards, and recently confirmed a recurring role on TNT’s “Tell Me Your Secrets.”
