AOL's The Boot: David Nail Hopes 'Moneyball' Wins Big at Oscars
Before seriously pursuing a career in music, David Nail found success in sports, particularly baseball. His athletic abilities got him as far as college ball, before he turned in his uniform for a guitar. In 2010, the Missouri native got to participate in the MLB's All-Star Legends & Celebrity, where he hit a home run. So, it's no surprise what movie he's hoping will take the Best Picture title at the Oscars this Sunday (Feb. 26).
"I know 'Moneyball' is getting a lot of attention, obviously being a sports fan and I enjoy Brad Pitt's work, hopefully he will do well there,"
David is also quite the movie buff. His first No. 1 single, 'Let it Rain,' was actually inspired by 'The Last Kiss.' In the picture, Zach Braff cheats on his pregnant fiancée, and she kicks him out after finding out. In order to win her back, he sits outside their house for days in all types of weather.
"It's a really powerful scene and I just remember trying to wrap my head around that, to describe how there can be years of good but you can't hide one night that you forgot to wear a ring," the singer told The Boot. "Your life can be going just perfectly and everything's fine and one little mistake, can throw the wrench of all wrenches into it."
