11 months later, Nail has a number one

Sunday, January 8, 2012 – 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."

"Home," which Lori McKenna both sings on and co-wrote, is the first song on this record that will absolutely stop you in your tracks. ...
CD review - I'm a Fire 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 ...
CD review - 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. ...
