David Nail debut coming in August
Wednesday, July 1, 2009
– David Nail's debut album, "I'm About To Come Alive Tuesday," will be out Aug. 18 on MCA Nashville. Produced by Frank Liddell and Michael Wrucke, Nail is credited with writing nearly half of the 11-track record.
"I think every artist that moves to Nashville has a list of things they hope to achieve, and having a record in stores has always been near the very top for me, said Nail. "This has been a two-year process of highs and lows, but now being on the verge of accomplishing that, it feels as sweet as I ever imagined."
Nail's single, Red Light, is in the top 30 on the charts. Nail recently starred in the video for the track alongside his new bride Catherine. The video was filmed in Nashville and will premiere later this month.
Songs on the CD are:
2. I'm About To Come Alive
3. Red Light
6. Summer Job Days
7. Strangers On A Train (featuring Miranda Lambert)
8. Looking For A Good Time
9. This Time Around
10. Turning Home

CD reviews for David Nail
A singer's believability is essential to the success of any album, and David Nail has a way of persuading us that every word he sings on his "Fighter" comes straight from the heart. And it doesn't hurt that the songwriting contained within is topnotch throughout.

The struggles battling severe depression despite budding success and the adoration of peers and fans alike that David Nail endured during his journey to the recent release of his new album reads something like a country song of its own.
And in hindsight, Nail's previous releases were brooding and at times melancholy. Unconscious reflections of his previously undiagnosed condition? Maybe. Nonetheless, the unmistakable positive vibe that shines through his newest album doesn't diminish ...
David Nail is a rare mainstream country artist who actually stands out from the rest of Music Row's regulars. Instead of leaning towards one of the two dominant styles of Nashville country, pop or rock, Nail blends country with soul and R&B.
When he builds upon his strengths, the songs shine. The single misstep, Grandpa's Farm, sounds like a blend of recent Kid Rock and Dusty Springfield's Son of a Preacher Man; which is as awkward as the comparison sounds. ...
