Adele - Adele Gives The Civil Wars Major Chart Boost

British singer Adele has given folk duo The Civil Wars a major chart boost after she urged her 16 million Twitter.com followers to buy the band's new album.

The group has returned to the spotlight with a self-titled second album, which has been sent racing up the charts in both Britain and America after Adele offered them a tweet of support.

In a message posted on the singer's Twitter page on Tuesday (07Aug13), she wrote, "Please go and get the new Civil Wars album. They're my absolute favourite and the new record is beautiful!"

Chart officials on both sides of the Atlantic have reportedly seen a spike in sales and the record now looks on course to land a double number one.

The Civil Wars' critically-acclaimed first full-length album, Barton Hollow, peaked at number 10 on the U.S. Billboard 200, and it reached number 13 in the U.K. charts following its release in 2011.

Chart success would be a major boost for the troubled duo following months of turmoil in the band.

Singer Joy Williams recently revealed she is still not on speaking terms with her bandmate John Paul White following the cancellation of their 2012 tour due to "internal discord" and "irreconcilable differences of ambition".
