Charles Esten Records Debut Album In Studio A

Charles Esten's debut album has been a long time in the making. writes: "While playing Deacon Claybourne — the loyal, brooding songwriter and guitarist struggling with addiction — on the country soap Nashville for over six seasons, music became an integral part of the role. Naturally, his real-life began to somewhat parallel that of his on-screen alter-ego, and in 2016, Esten, 57, began releasing music of his own — allowing him to pursue a longtime passion properly.

"They call this a 10-year town, Nashville, and it's definitely been slightly over 10 years since I got here to shoot the show Nashville," Esten told PEOPLE over the phone from Nashville. "And it's hard to overstate the impact it has had on my life.""
