NEWS | Charlie Worsham Joins Ward Thomas On UK Tour Starting March 30th

Prolific recording artist and multi-instrumentalist Charlie Worsham will be making his long-awaited return to the UK at the end of this month to tour with British duo Ward Thomas. Playing 13 shows with them across the country, full information and tickets can be found here.

'I was literally 10 minutes from the Nashville Airport, trying to get back to the UK to sing when the Covid lockdown began. I won’t take a single note for granted on this visit' says Worsham. 'Plus, in all the years I’ve loved touring in the UK, this tour with Ward Thomas is my first time being part of a Trans-Atlantic lineup. It means so much to me to be a part of this particular tour, because it represents how deeply connected Nashville and London have become in the country music space.'

Worsham most recently released his 2021 EP Sugarcane. Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town), it’s an emotional homecoming for Worsham. What began as personal reflections from a daily writing exercise, grew into something much more universal — six songs that celebrate the love, perseverance, struggle and joy experienced through life and the people who are there through it all.

Sugarcane features single 'Fist Though This Town', which Billboard declared 'compelling from the first note', while Music Row praised 'Super powerful...the hard-times lyric and its blue-collar attitude grab you by your coat lapels and command you to pay heed. Brilliance all around.'

At the end of 2022, Apple Music Country launched Pickers Radio, hosted by Worsham. The 12-episode feature has most recently seen him chatting to Vince Gill and Dierks Bentley, who Worsham will be joining on his Gravel & Gold tour across the US in his band this summer.
