David Nail has a Top 11 Album in AOL's The Boot
While it's tough to argue with the fact that 2011 was a great year for country music, it's easier (and more fun) to debate just what country music is and which artists can truly be considered country. This year's crop of outstanding country albums includes a wide cross-section of mainstream, radio-ready acts as well as artists influenced by folk, rock and pop music. Although some of your favorites may not be included here, we think you'll find something to love about the 11 albums we've chosen as the year's best. And why 11? Well, of course, not only because it's 2011, but as 'This Is Spinal Tap' reminds us, it's one more than 10!
11. David Nail, 'The Sound of a Million Dreams'
His 2009 debut album declared 'I'm About to Come Alive' and that's just what the Missouri native did when he finally delivered his sophomore album last month. Opening with the rockin' 'Grandpa's Farm,' and highlighted by the Top 10 'Let It Rain' and the gorgeous 'She Rides Away,' this was a 'Dream' worth waiting for.
