Fans of ABC’s hit television drama, “Nashville” are in for a real treat as two of the show’s heartthrobs, Charles Esten and Chris Carmack, better known as Deacon Claybourne and Will Lexington perform a special, one-night only concert at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino on Jan. 16. Both artists will perform top hits from the Emmy-nominated show, songs of their own, as well as some of country’s most legendary tracks.

As Deacon Claybourne, Esten portrays a country songwriter and guitar player, whose alcohol abuse prevents him from sailing the road of success with his former lover Rayna Jaymes, played by Connie Britton, and as Will Lexington, Carmack is a rising country star struggling with the realization that he might be gay. The show is now in its fourth season.

Esten has a heavy theatrical background, debuting in London when he portrayed Buddy Holly, singing, acting, and playing guitar in the hit West End musical, “Buddy.” He went on to star as a recurring cast member and frequent song improviser on “Whose Line is it Anyway?” and has appeared on several hit TV shows including “The Office,” and “ER.” While on “Nashville,” Esten has been honored to perform at the Grand Ole Opry and the historic Ryman auditorium.

Carmack, an accomplished actor, singer-songwriter, and guitarist just released his debut independent song “Being Alone” and title track, “Pieces of You,” from his forthcoming EP due out this month. He has been featured on “The Music of Nashville” soundtracks in addition to performing on previous “Stars of Nashville” concert tours. He has previously starred on “The O.C.” and alongside Alec Baldwin and Jan Maxwell in “Entertaining Mr. Sloane” in New York.

Tickets cost $49.50 and $62.50 and can be purchased at or by calling 775-325-7401.
