Jango Song Of The Day-David Nail
Album:I'm About To Come Alive
Country singer David Nail got off to a bad start a few years ago but Red Light has done very well on the charts and it is nominated for a 2010 Academy Of Country Music Single Of The Year. Nail is from Kennett, MO. He was torn between baseball and music but decided to get serious about music and moved to Nashville. It didn't work out and he went home. He went back to Nashville in 2002 and signed with Mercury Nashville. He recorded an album with producer Keith Stegall and the single Memphis reached #52 on the Billboard Country Singles chart. But Mercury fired Stegall and the album was never released. Nail returned home to coach baseball but in 2007 he was introduced to Miranda Lambert's producer Frank Liddell and Nail signed with MCA Nashville. He recorded a duet with Miranda on his debut CD I'm About To Come Alive and Nail co-wrote four songs including one with Kenny Chesney. Legendary LA session musicians guitarist Waddy Wachtel and keyboardist Chuck Leavell are on this. The first single was a cover of Train's I'm About To Come Alive and it didn't do that well. But the follow up Red Light reached #7 on the Billboard Country Singles chart and as I said he's nominated for an ACM award. Red Light was written by Jonathan Singleton, Melissa Pierce & Dennis Matkosky. Singleton has written songs for Gary Allan, Billy Currington & Josh Turner. He has formed Jonathan Singleton & The Grove and Universal will release their debut CD in May. David Nail is a very talented singer and he deserves a lot of credit for determination and he's going to be a big star. Here's the video for Red Light by David Nail.
