Charles Esten’s Fave Five Moments: Wrapping Up Six Years in Nashville's Nashville

It’s been almost six years since the world met Deacon Claybourne. When Nashville premiered in 2012, Charles Esten moved to the real-life Nashville to take on the starring role as singer, songwriter, lover, friend, uncle, brother, and eventually husband and father. 

The world has fallen in love with Claybourne, and Esten already feels emotional about heading into the final season of the show.

It's 'Nashville's' last season, but Charles Esten says it's not 'the end of that world'

NASHVILLE — Hardcore "Nashies" might find this hard to believe, but there's a silver lining to the news that TV's Nashville will end after its sixth season — which premieres Jan. 4 on CMT.

This time, everyone involved — from the writers to the cast, crew and loyal viewers — knows exactly when the story will be finished.
