Charles Esten

Charles Esten is an American actor and singer/songwriter best known for his role as Deacon Claybourne on CMT’s NASHVILLE. Esten’s many additional television credits include his current role of Ward Cameron in the Netflix original series OUTER BANKS and recurring roles on such shows as BIG LOVE, THE OFFICE and ER.

Charles is an active Musicians On Call board member and volunteer, regularly performing for patients and caregivers in hospitals, hospice centers, and VA facilities. With live performances being mostly cancelled in 2020, the singer-songwriter, actor and performer has instead been performing a regular weekly online Quarantine Live Stream concert to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, in honor of his daughter Addie, who survived leukemia when she was 2 1/2 years old and celebrated her 21st birthday in October. Esten’s proud to serve as the National Honorary Spokesperson for the LLS LIGHT THE NIGHT campaign. He has been honored to be a part of the ALIVE HOSPICE Bluebird series since 2013.

Chris DeStefano

Chris DeStefano is a singer/songwriter, producer/mixer and multi-instrumentalist based in Nashville, TN. He is a 3x CMA Triple Play Award Winner and has co-penned over 20 hit songs for artists like Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Chase Rice, Rascal Flatts, Billy Currington, Dan+Shay, Miranda Lambert, Chris Young and Morgan Evans. Chris also is the President and CEO of Winsongs Music focused on developing songwriters and artists.

Chris’ #1 songs include Carrie Underwood (“Good Girl”, “Little Toy Guns”, “Smoke Break”, “Something in the Water”, Super Bowl LII and 2018 Olympic Games Theme Song “The Champion”), Dan + Shay (“From the Ground Up”, “Nothin’ Like You”), Jason Aldean (“Just Gettin’ Started”), Billy Currington (“Hey Girl”), Brett Eldredge (“Don’t Ya”), Luke Bryan (“That’s My Kind of Night”, “Kick the Dust Up”), Miranda Lambert (“Somethin’ Bad” [w-Carrie Underwood]), Chris Young (“Losing Sleep”), Morgan Evans (“Kiss Somebody”) and Rascal Flatts (“Rewind”), Tyler Rich “Leave Her Wild” (XM The Highway #1) and Chase Rice (“Eyes On You”).

Taylor Noelle

Taylor Noelle is equal parts glittering pop star, introspective songwriter, and colorful creative director. Her songs — a collection of blurry, beautiful moments recalling love and frustration — showcase her dedication to deep musicality and honest storytelling. Her Los Angeles-to-Nashville upbringing is evident in the variety of sonic and lyrical influences that emerge in her sound. Her songs melt together modern and retro sounds with confessional, emotional lyricism. Her influences range from Maggie Rogers and HAIM to Tame Impala and SZA.

Charlie Greene

Charlie Greene is the frontman for Nashville alt rock band Betcha. Betcha’s boundary-pushing sound calls to mind bands like The 1975, The Neighborhood, Cage the Elephant, and Kings of Leon. Betcha has toured nationally with artists such as KALEO, Matt Maeson, and The Band CAMINO. Their 2020 singles “July”, “Closer to the Sun”, and “Deja Vu” have seen rotation on SiriusXM’s AltNation and placements on Spotify’s Rock This, PopRox, and Totally Alt playlists.
