Charles Esten Goes Where No Man Has Gone Before With 52 Weeks of #EverySingleFriday

Charles Esten Goes Where No Man Has Gone Before With 52 Weeks of #EverySingleFriday

Since July 15, 2016, Charles Esten has released an original song every Friday in his #EverySingleFriday series, culminating today with his 52nd track, “Long Haul.”

In doing so, Charles becomes the first independent country artist to released back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back songs over the course of one year.

That’s 52 “backs,” which is quite a streak.

“I guess I’d have to admit that all of this, in some sense, has been a kind of personal statement that music isn’t just a hobby to me,” said Charles. “It’s a priority. Living in this great city, surrounded by all the incredible writers and musicians I have come to know and work with, has reignited my passion for what was always my first love: music. I honestly can’t conceive of a future that doesn’t include writing, recording and performing my music as a central part of my life. You might say I’m in it for the long haul.”

To mark the milestone, Charles will be hosting the One Single Year Celebration Concert at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s CMA Theater on Wednesday, July 19, at 6 p.m. Attendance is free, but you’ll need to get a ticket, which will be available on July 10 at charlesesten.com.
