Charles Esten Mini Bio:

Born in Pittsburgh, PA, Charles "Chip" Esten grew up in Alexandria, VA.  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 June, Charles was honored to host the 2017 CMT Music Awards.


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.
