DAVID NAIL CD RELEASE PARTY - Today's Country Magazine
David Nail CD Release Party
HE NAILED IT THIS TIME!
By S. Parks
After a certain success a few years back with the single “Memphis” on his Mercury album that was never released, David Nail took an extended baseball vacation from music and, thank goodness, didn’t forget to come back to Nashville after the game.
Nashville’s Tin Roof is quite often packed but somehow, David managed to top that with an overload of fans he’s been accumulating for some time now. This MCA artist was very much at home as he returned to the stage where he has played many times over the past several years. The only difference is, this time it was for his own long-awaited CD release party. There was no question that this handsome, hard-working musician is living up to his CD title “I’m About to Come Alive”.
David could never be accused of having a poker face because his emotions are laid out for everyone to see and hear. His songs, five of which were solo written on the CD, tell pertinent and heartfelt stories illustrating chapters in all of our biographies. This is particularly evident in “Red Light”, now climbing the Billboard charts, as he recounts the ending of a relationship. The title song is a cover of the Train album cut and certainly is prophetic at this moment. His influences are no secret either as he borrows a little from Ray Charles and Vince Gill and we can hear shades of Mark Cohn as well in the piano-driven “Mississippi”. It is also apparent that he is highly regarded by his peers with songs co-written by Kenny Chesney and Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox and there’s an amazing “Strangers on a Train” duet with Miranda Lambert, putting the icing on this new release.
Having performed with everyone from Blake Shelton to James Otto, not to mention the outstanding Shannon Lawson, David is a well-seasoned artist who has been patiently waiting in the wings for his turn at bat. We can add the very talented singer/songwriter Anthony Smith, who has penned for George Strait and Trace Adkins, to that attendance list as well. Anthony, Storme Warren of GAC and many other celebs were there to join David in the celebration.
The successful CD release party was only trumped by the audience singing along to his songs - two distinct moments an artist dreams about as he gives everything he has to his music. As David moves up the ladder, we will all be watching as he continues to hammer those great songs into our songlists. See for yourself on September 18 as he returns to the Tin Roof in the Music Row area.
