Although the TV show Nashville is coming to an end in 2018, series star Charles Esten plans to keep Nashville as his permanent home. Esten, who played Deacon Claybourne on the show, says he’s also became an avid member of the real-life community and that he and his family have grown to love Tennessee. From running his Light the Night event to help combat cancer and hosting the 2017 CMT Awards, the family have made Nashville home and have no plans to leave. Esten also plans to tour much more, either solo or with some of his Nashville cast mates. Season 6 of Nashville premieres on CMT on Jan. 4.
