Behind-the-Scenes of Nashville With Charles Esten

Deacon Takes Fans Backstage on Facebook Live

Nashville started filming its fifth season this week, and #Nashies around the world let out a collective scream of joy.

We’ve started to see a lot of behind-the-scenes action via the show’s new official Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts, but the die hard fans always want more. Can you blame them?!

Good thing pleasing the Nashville fans is Charles Esten‘s specialty.

Esten, who plays Deacon Claybourne, treated fans to three exclusive glimpses into his first days back on set via Facebook live.

In the first video, published on Tuesday (Sept. 6), the actor walked fans around the show’s sound stages while talking about how excited he was to be back.

The following day, the Whose Line Is It Anyway? alum brought fans into the hair and makeup trailer and introduced them to Sandy, the woman behind the “Deaconing” that occurs when Esten becomes his character.

Later on Wednesday, the “This Town Is Ours” singer was joined by fellow cast-mate Clare Bowen, who plays his on-screen niece Scarlett O’Connor. The two are also currently on tour together.

Stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes action from the set of Nashville, and chat with your fellow Nashies using #NashvilleCMT on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Nashville Season 5 premieres Jan. 5 on CMT.
