With lyrics such as “I can’t hold you any longer, you love his money more than me”, coupled with a well balanced music arrangement,the track is one that will standout to listeners well after the song is over.

The song is a great reminder to tell the one you love that you do in fact love them, even if you think they already know. “Half Mile Hill” is another captivating track on the album showcasing David’s talents.
While the music is simple in the background, David’s vocals speak volumes throughout the entire song as he sings about this hill that serves as an escape where one can go to think & reflect back on past experiences.
Album titled track “The Sound Of A Million Dreams,” written by Phil Vassar & Scooter Carusoe, is a song that lives up to it’s title, especially when delivered by David Nail. The chorus serves as a testimony to David’s hard work, not only on this album but also to his career. I labor for hours cause I know the power of a song when a song hits you right, pouring my soul into stories of life, hoping someone’ll hear one tonight. Maybe my voice will cut through the noise and stir up an old memory. And out of these piano keys comes the sound, the sound of a million dreams.
His vocals are strong, rich, & powerful making you want to hit repeat and listen to the song again. “Catherine” closes out the album and is a beautiful dedication to David’s wife.
