Nail turns home for new single
Tuesday, February 2, 2010
– David Nail's third and latest single Turning Home,
written by Kenny Chesney and Scooter Carusoe, was released last week. The song garnered 35 first-week stations' support, making it the number 1 most-added single on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck and Billboard charts.
Turning Home added 23 more stations this week. The song is from Nail's debut CD "I'm About To Come Alive." Nail's previous single, Red Light, is the longest charted single in Mediabase history at 42 weeks.
For the second time in a month, Nail volunteered his time and voice for fundraisers benefiting the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF). Held in Walnut Creek, Cal. on Jan. 9 and St. Louis on Jan. 17, the events and the organization's founder, St. Louis Cardinals Manager Tony LaRussa, provide money to build and operate a facility where dogs and cats can be taken once their time at public shelters has run out.

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. ...
