Charles Esten Hosts July 19 Concert To Celebrate History Making Milestone

Charles Esten makes history by becoming the first independent country artist to release 52 weekly original songs, back-to-back. He kicked off his #EverySingleFriday music release campaign on July 15, 2016, with, “Through The Blue,” and has released a song “every single Friday” since then, culminating in today’s 52nd track titled, “Long Haul.” 

 ‘Long Haul’ is a funky little promise of fidelity and faithfulness. The title definitely seemed fitting for the one year anniversary of the #EverySingleFriday project because, while I’ve enjoyed every single second of this big endeavor, it has definitely been a LONG HAUL. It took a huge amount of work, not just on my part, but by so many people that helped to make the seemingly impossible happen,” Charles says of the 52nd release.

To mark this milestone, and to thank everyone involved, Charles will be hosting a free event: the “One Single Year Celebration Concert.”  The show will take place at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s CMA Theater on Wednesday, July 19th at 6:00 PM.

Attendance, while free, will require tickets, which became available Monday, July 10th at
