Charles Esten Earns Guinness World Record for 54-Week Streak

Charles Esten Earns Guinness World Record for 54-Week Streak

Charles Esten can add a Guinness World Records title to his lengthy resume.

After his performance on the Today show on July 25, Charles was presented with a certificate for the Guinness World Records title for the Most Consecutive Weeks to Release an Original Digital Single by a Music Act. The title reflects Charles’ #EverySingleFriday campaign, which started on July 15, 2016, and ended on July 21, 2017. The record represents 54 original songs that Charles wrote (or co-wrote), recorded and released every Friday during the campaign.

“On July 1, 2016, I posted a video where I promised to put out a brand-new original single every single Friday for ‘as long as it made sense,’” says Charles. “At that time, I had no idea how it would go, or how long I could do it. I only knew that, as a lifelong songwriter, through my role as Deacon Claybourne on Nashville, I had found my way to Music City and, surrounded by some of the most talented people in the world, I was feeling a level of inspiration and creativity that needed a different kind of outlet than an EP or an album. I had no idea how challenging this project would be, or how incredibly fulfilling, or that a little over a year later, I would complete #EverySingleFriday with 54 original singles released. I certainly had no idea that number would be considered a Guinness World Records title.”

The Guinness World Records title comes on the heels of Charles’ 100th performance on the Grand Ole Opry on July 20.

From Patriot to Punchline By Rick Worthington 9/3/20 Have you ever tried to do something good, but went about doing it the wrong way?
