Having recently celebrated the history-making back-to-back release of 54 original songs under the #EverySingleFriday umbrella, Charles Esten continues to deliver musically, and on big and small screens worldwide.
Tonight (August 24th), Charles will appear on “Whose Line Is It Anyway” with colleagues, Wayne Brady and Jeff Davis. The episode will air on the CW Network at 9/8 pm Central.
In addition to touring as a solo artist, and with the “Nashville” cast, Charles continues his role as Carl Hardee Sr. in the popular Carl’s Jr. ad campaign, and is gearing up for the 2017 Light the Night walk on October 20th in Nashville.
Charles is the national spokesperson for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), and this year marks his team’s fifth anniversary of walking in Nashville. #TeamAddie…named for his daughter (then 2 ½, now 18) who was diagnosed with, and ultimately beat, leukemia…has raised $815,737.00 to date toward research, and supporting those struggling with the illness.
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 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.
