Nashville star Charles Esten has signed with APA for music representation.

Since his appearance on the drama series, Esten has performed hundreds of live concerts over the last six years, including three sold-out Nashville In Concert shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall. He has also performed at the C2C Festival in the O2 Arena, the CMC Festival in Australia, Stagecoach in California, CMA Fest in Nashville, as well as The Bluebird Café, The Ryman Auditorium, and The Grand Ole Opry—where he made his 100th appearance last summer.

In January, Esten completed his first sold-out 12-city solo tour through the UK and The Netherlands, with plans to return to the UK this October. He also made musical history when he earned a Guinness World Records title for his #EverySingleFriday campaign, which yielded 54 original songs that he wrote, recorded and released once a week for 54 consecutive weeks. The songs have already been streamed worldwide nearly eight million times.

Esten, who also currently stars in the upcoming Netflix YA drama Outer Banks, is a Virginia native who started his acting career in L.A. before making his theatrical debut portraying Buddy Holly in London’s hit West End musical Buddy. Esten’s other credits include an upcoming recurring role on TNT’s Tell Me Your Secrets, as well as recurring roles on Disney Channel’s Jessie, HBO’s Enlightened and Big Love, and NBC’s ER. Feature credits include Swing Vote, Thirteen Days, and The Postman. Esten continues to be represented by manager Patty Puskar, Loeb & Loeb Nashville, and Artists & Representatives for theatrical.
