Nail sings for St. Louis
Friday, October 28, 2011
– Devout St. Louis Cardinals fan David Nail will get the chance to perform at the seventh game of the World Series tonight. Not, of course, with the home team, but he will sing God Bless America
for the seventh inning stretch.
"I'm truly honored to be asked to sing God Bless America tonight," he said. "Obviously being from Missouri and a Cardinal fan, just to be able to watch game seven in person is a once in a lifetime experience in itself."
Nail is also making an appearance on the new GAC series Day Jobs on Oct. 30 at 8 p.m. Eastern. Nail will put in a full day of work at a Dairy Queen in his home state of Missouri.
On Nov 15, MCA Records Nashville will release Nail's second album "The Sound Of A Million Dreams."

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. ...
