Nail celebrates hit single

Wednesday, February 8, 2012 – the celebration was on for David Nail on Monday to celebrate his first number one single, Let It Rain.

"People who know me, know that I can get teary," said Nail in front of the backdrop at ASCAP's Music Row offices, where more than 100 people had gathered to help celebrate.

"There was a point when I was so low, I didn't know... and I called Jason (Sheer, who owns the Tin Roof club), who told me I was playing there that night. He didn't ask me, he told me. I swear, that call and that night changed everything," he continued. "If I hadn't gone out to the Tin Roof and sung, I would've gone back home to Missouri."

The song, written with Jonathan Singleton, too 48 weeks to reach the top.

Brand new daddy Singleton joked, "Someone told me we could've had a baby in the time it took this song to go number one... and (my wife and I) did!"

"There are so many people to thank, so many people who believed and helped and fought," Nail said. "There have been so many moments when it felt like it would all fall apart, but people kept in there with us. They didn't want to give up, either, and that's maybe the mark of making a difference with a song or an album: when people care enough to not just move on. Right now, I feel like the luckiest man in the world."

After the event, Nail headed straight to his bus for a string of Texas and Arizona dates before starting a California run. The Sound of A Million Dreams, the title track of his new CD, is slated to follow up Let It Rain as Nail's next single. He will also be seen in Country Radio Seminar's New Faces Showcase in Nashville.

CD reviews for David Nail

CD review - The Fighter A singer's believability is essential to the success of any album, and David Nail has a way of persuading us that every word he sings on his "Fighter" comes straight from the heart. And it doesn't hurt that the songwriting contained within is topnotch throughout. Two songs, in particular, go straight to the heart in addition to being heartfelt. "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. ...
