Ward Thomas score No.1 album and make UK chart history

Many congratulations to Ward Thomas, whose second album, Cartwheels has entered the Official UK Abum Charts straight in at Number One, the first ever British country artist to claim the top spot in UK chart history!

British 22-year old twin sisters Catherine and Lizzy Ward from rural Hampshire released their debut album From Where We Stand in 2014, which peaked at Number 41 on the Official UK Album Chart, although it reached Number 1 on the UK Country Chart and was crowned ‘Album of the Year’ at the British Country Music Awards.

The self-penned album represents a new sound for Ward Thomas as they move in a country-pop direction.
