CHARLES ESTEN BECOMES FIRST INDEPENDENT COUNTRY ARTIST
TO RELEASE 52 BACK-TO-BACK ORIGINAL SONGS 
Charles Celebrates #EverySingleFriday Milestone With “One Single Year” Concert 
Wed. July 19th at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s CMA Theater 
(July 7, 2017) Nashville, Tenn. — Today, Charles Esten makes
history by becoming the first independent country artist to release 52
weekly original songs, back-to-back. He kicked off his
#EverySingleFriday music release campaign on July 15, 2016, with,
“Through The Blue,” and
has released a song “every single Friday” since then, culminating in today’s 52nd track titled, “Long Haul.” 
To mark this milestone, and to thank everyone involved, Charles
will be hosting a free event: the “One Single Year Celebration Concert.”
 The show will take place at the Country Music Hall of Fame and
Museum’s CMA Theater on Wednesday, July 19th at 6 PM. Attendance, while free, will require tickets, which become available Monday, July 10 at www.charlesesten.com.

Of the 52nd release, Charles says, “‘Long Haul’ is a funky little
promise of fidelity and faithfulness. The title definitely seemed
fitting for the one year anniversary of the #EverySingleFriday project
because, while I’ve enjoyed every single second of this big endeavor, it
has definitely been a LONG HAUL. It took a huge amount of work, not
just on my part, but by so many people that helped to make the seemingly
impossible happen.”
“Finally, 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. 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.”
