His Sinatra-like poise and class, mixed with his natural melody and soul, have given David Nail the image he needs to start his career in country music. Born in May of 1979 in Kennett, Missouri, Nail first got started in the industry when he joined with Mercury Nashville Records in 2002. There, he released his first album, which included the single “Memphis,” a Number Fifty-Two hit.
After Mercury, Nail moved to MCA Nashville in 2007. With them, he released the singles “I’m About to Come Alive,” “Turning Home,” “Red Light” and “Let It Rain.” “Red Light” peaked at Number Seven, while “Let It Rain” became his first Number One hit in early 2012. Both songs were certified Gold.
Nail has been nominated for two awards, from the Academy of Country Music for Single Record of the Year in 2010 for “Red Light,” and from the Grammy Awards in 2011 for Male Country Vocal Performance on “Turning Home.”
