The Dublin, Ireland portion of the C2C: Country to Country Music Festival has been postponed after Irish officials cancelled all indoor public events hosting 100 or more people due to the global outbreak of COVID-19, the novel coronavirus. The new mandate, which runs through March 29, allows outdoor events to proceed only if the capacity is under 500.
NASHVILLE hunk Charles Esten had to Stand By His Bet when he promised his Scots fans he would wear a kilt if he sold out his last gig here.
The country music star, who played troubled singer Deacon Claybourne in the hit TV series, posted an online wager that he would don our national dress if followers bought all the tickets for his show at Glasgow’s famous Barrowland venue.
...Charles pays tribute to..."Only You" by the British Yazoo, revealing a nice raw edge in his warm voice. He receives thunderous applause for the cover, only to let it go silent in the room. When he announces his next song with a chat and drops it as one of his favorite songs from the Nashville series, the audience expects "A life that's good" or "Sanctuary". It turns out to be the last one, which supported a very emotional moment on television. You can hear a pin drop....
Four seems to be the magic number for Nashville star Charles Esten, as he is set to play the C2C: Country to Country Festival for the first time in four years, and he will be making stops in four different cities: Dublin, Glasgow, Amsterdam and Berlin.
Though it has been a while since playing C2C, Esten is no stranger to Europe thanks to his frequent tours across the continent. Sounds Like Nashville caught up with the singer and actor to find out about his return to the C2C Festival, the differences between performing in the U.S. & overseas and new music in the works.
Charles Esten is best-known in the UK for his role as Deacon Claybourne in the long-running music drama Nashville, which came to an end in 2018.
During his time on the show, Charles recorded a lot of music for his character and plenty of music for himself. He entered the Guinness Book of World Records for his Every Single Friday releases that spanned a total of 54 weeks.
