We think it’s pretty cool to have DAVID NAIL as our MERCH MONDAY artist today! What a talent! The Kennett, Missouri native has been leaving us awestruck with his rich vocals and deeply personal song lyrics for close to two decades now. “Let It Rain” (David Nail, Jonathan Singleton), the first single from The Sound Of A Million Dreams album, released in February 2011 became Nail’s first number one in January 2012. “Whatever She’s Got” (Jimmy Robbins, Jon Nite), the lead single from I’m A Fire shot to number one on the Country Airplay chart in February 2014. Another studio album, Fighter, followed.
A bout with mental illness left Nail needing to “rebel against what people expect you to be.” He then began to make his most “organic” work to date, David Nail & The Well Ravens, with Jason Hall and Andrew Petroff. This project proved to be liberating and allowed him to move on to his next venture.
Nail’s current EP, Oh, Mother, is a reflective work, the culmination of several months of solo writing. Of the title track, Rolling Stone said, “the song creeps in like a sunrise – quiet, restrained cello and keys are the only underpinning for Nail’s powerful vocals at first. But then it slowly builds to something more massive and majestic.”
More music will be coming in 2020 from Nail. As for any specific expectations for the year, Nail shows his sense of humility by saying, “My philosophy has always been, I just hope to have a good enough year that I can have a next year while staying as true to myself as I possibly can.”
In other news, it was just announced that Nail will begin a series of Thursday evening live streams from his home. The streams will be available live on https://www.facebook.com/DavidNail/, https://twitter.com/davidnail and https://www.youtube.com/user/DavidNailMusic at 7:00 PM Central Time.
