Sea shanty Scot Nathan Evans tops charts and lands himself UK number one

Sea Shanty hitmaker Nathan Evans was over the moon today as his song reached number one in the UK charts.

The Airdrie lad had been campaigning to get his track Wellerman to number one after it had been floating near the top for a few weeks.

The track had made it to number one in Germany last month and now is sitting at number one in the UK.

And today when it finally happened, Nathan took to Instagram to thank his fans for making it happen.

In his post, Nathan said: “Wellerman is a UK NUMBER 1! I still don’t believe it… Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of yous that bought the single and listened to it. This is just the start!! #WellermanForNumberOne.”

And fans were quick to congratulate Nathan from Airdrie, on his success.

One said: “So happy for you!”

While another added: “That is amazing man! I’m so happy for you!”

And one penned: “Totally deserved!!!”
