Album Review

Always on the verge of a breakthrough success, David Nail swings for the fences on 2014's I'm a Fire, his third full-length album. Nail's gifts suggest he's a blue-collar patriot, a working man happy to churn out anthems for the unsung, but he's a bit more subtle than that, identifying exceptional songwriters and never succumbing to the good-time bro-country that is a golden ticket to the top of the charts. His attraction to Shane McAnally songs is a strong evidence of the former — he cuts two of the hot songwriter's tunes, "Burnin' Bed," which also bears a co-credit by Brandy Clark, plus "Brand New Day" — but he also spots a sleek little crossover number in "Kiss You Tonight," an adult contemporary tune co-written by American Idol finalist David Cook. Nail's gift is how he avoids bombast — some of these songs could be delivered with a sledgehammer but the singer chooses to relax and that light touch resonates — and he makes his connection to the country-pop past explicit through a cover of Jimmy Webb's "Galveston," popularized by Glen Campbell. Nail never seems as casual as Campbell — he seems to measure every word — but he nevertheless prefers to undersell his material, which makes I'm a Fire insinuating, not insistent. It may not deliver a knockout punch but it's not intended to be powerful; it's a grower, sounding better with repeated exposure, repeated listens revealing the craft in the songs and the subtlety in Nail's execution.

Customer Reviews

So good, So right!

How can he get any better? The songs I have heard so far make me believe that this is/will be his best album so far! This is definitely an album you have to preorder!

What can you say?

I've been listening to David right from the beginning. From Memphis right up until his newest single kiss you tonight. I can honestly say Nail's music has changed my life. It's been with me through the good times in my life and all the bad times as well. To me it's much more than just a song or just an album. When I listen to David's music it's as if for a moment all the worries and struggles of life simply disappear. For an artist to have that kind of impact on an individual is just mind blowing. By just hearing the song samples, I know for sure that this is another album that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Thank you David Nail.

Great album!

I cannot put my finger on it but he sounds like a cross between Ronnie Dunn and Gary's incredible! A what a true artist!

A country artist with an agile voice, a gift for songwriting, and a passionate performing style, David Nail was born in Kennett, Missouri on May 18, 1979.
