Ward Thomas are the first UK country act to score a Number 1 album

Ward Thomas, 22-year-old twin sisters Catherine and Lizzy, have made history with the first ever Number 1 album by a UK country artist with their stunning major label debut ‘Cartwheels’.

The Hampshire-born twins who went to Nashville to perfect their blend of country and pop are delighted to have the Number 1 album in the UK this week.  

Catherine and Lizzy said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be Number 1 in the album chart. A huge thank you to everyone who has bought it and for all the support that has helped us get there. We are incredibly excited and proud to be part of this first for country music. Today is a dream come true!”
