Charles Esten, Clare Bowen Are Nashville ‘Divas’
Cast members of the hit ABC drama, "Nashville," continue to immerse themselves in the Music City scene, honoring their show's namesake city at various charity events. Charles Esten (who plays "Deacon") and Clare Bowen ("Scarlett") will be the featured performers at "Divas Nashvegas," a concert benefiting Nashville's Oasis Center.
"We are thrilled and honored that 'Nashville' cast members are taking time to give back to the local Nashville community," Oasis CEO Tom Ward tells The Boot. "While 'Deacon' and 'Scarlett' do a wonderful job of portraying our city on national TV, Charles and Clare clearly embody the giving spirit that make the real Nashville such a special place to live."
On Friday, May 31, the two actor-singers will entertain guests at the historic Evers Farm, just a few minutes south of Nashville, marking Divas' eighth anniversary. Past performers at the event have included Wynonna, Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker, Patti LaBelle, Reba McEntire and Faith Hill.

The intimate show, which also includes a cocktail hour and dinner catered by the famous Loveless Cafe, will raise money for Nashville's only residential and counseling center for homeless, at-risk and underprivileged teens and young adults. Divas Nashvegas is the Oasis Center's biggest fundraiser of the year and a crucial one. Money raised will help fund several programs that serve youth in need, including an emergency shelter for teenagers who are at risk for entering state custody. In the past three years, 96% of the youth who stayed at Oasis' shelter were successfully reunited with their families, thus avoiding foster care.
