From the stage of the Grand Old Opry on Monday night, Charles Esten announced and performed his brand-new single, “A Road and A Radio.” Besides his LLS charity fundraising anthem “Light The Night,” it is his first new single since completing his Guinness World Record-breaking, 54-track #EverySingleFriday campaign in 2017.
Co-written with J.T. Harding, and produced with Bobby Hamrick, “A Road and A Radio” is a rocking country ode to the open road and the music that has long been its soundtrack. Charles performed it with the same group of Nashville musicians who he recorded it with in the studio. Fans can find the new single when it’s released on all platforms on Friday, October 11.
Later this month, Charles returns to the UK for a Country Music Week tour which will finish up on October 27 at Royal Albert Hall. This time he’s excited to be bringing a full band with him, fronted by Nashville musical director and guitarist, Colin Linden. Chart-climbing UK-based Country trio The Adelaides will return as his openers. (Dates below)
