– Nearly one year after its release, David Nail has a number one single Let It Rain,
his publicist said Sunday.
The song from Nail's new "Sound of A Million Dreams" is his first number one. "When you're 25 weeks in and you believe in a song, but you're stuck in the middle of the chart, it's hard to think you're gonna get there," Nail said, "and yet, you can't think that it won't go all the way. I am a very blessed and lucky man...because not only did my label never give up on me, but so many people at country radio hung in there with us, too.
Nail, who released the song 48 weeks ago, takes over the top from Zac Brown Band's Keep Me In Mind.
"It's been a long road, but - well, we're here, and it feels good," Nail said.
"I am the son of s high school band director - and music is all I think God created me to do," said Nail, who co-wrote the song with Jonathan Singleton. "It is not an easy dream to pursue, but I can't imagine anything else...and right now, I feel like I am doing what was intended. To get validated when you're chasing something like this is maybe the greatest feeling in the world."
