– The video for David Nail's new single, Let It Rain,
The song from his forthcoming sophomore album debuted on Vevo. The video, co-directed by Nail and Stephen Shepherd, captures the pain of a man who realizes that a passionate indiscretion has probably cost him his marriage.
"I had just seen the movie 'The Last Kiss,' and it was a pretty powerful ending," said Nail of his inspiration in writing the song. "I just tried to paint the picture of what that guy seemed to be feeling, when he realized the significance of what he had just done."
"With the video, I tried to recreate the rawness and reality of that moment," he continued. "I wanted to grab people's attention immediately, and I feel like Stephen and I accomplished that. I can't wait for the fans to see it because I think they will see this video is different than the past ones I've done."
Let It Rain, co-written by Nail and Jonathan Singleton, is currently climbing the country singles charts.
Nail is in the studio finishing his second album for MCA Nashville.The CD is the follow-up to his MCA Nashville debut "I'm About To Come Alive," which contains the hits Turning Home for which he received a Grammy nomination for Best Male Country Performance, and Red Light.

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. ...
