EDITORS’ NOTES

David Nail’s third album delves into bittersweet memories of the past as well as romantic dreams of the present. The Missouri-born singer draws on his own married life for inspiration as he balances traditional and contemporary country sounds with the help of producers Chuck Ainlay and Frank Liddell. Rather than indulge in faux-rebel posturing or party-hearty clichés, the album’s songs offer honest glimpses of relationships, small-town life, and the struggle to learn from one’s mistakes. Whether he’s falling under the spell of a fascinating woman (“Whatever She’s Got”), looking back on old flames with fondness (“Broke My Heart”), or celebrating his better half (the title track), Nail brings natural warmth and sincerity to his performances. The twang-filled “When They’re Gone (Lyle County)” recalls the joys of young love with the help of Little Big Town, while the piano ballad “The Secret” reflects on the price paid for bad choices. Nail blends voices with Lee Ann Womack on a heartfelt cover of “Galveston” (a Jimmy Webb tune that Glen Campbell took to the top of the charts in 1969), adding a note of heroism to this radio-friendly yet highly personal release.

I love this album. I truly believe David Nail is the most overlooked singer in country music. His voice is amazing!!!

The New Era

David Nail has a much different and newer sound coming into this new album. Instead of the slower ballads, a handful of songs sound more upbeat in tempo and melody. The new sound is something that is going to be the breakthrough that David Nail has needed. He has always been underrated with his past two albums, but I think because of the hype of "Whatever She's Got", people are going to really find they enjoy what he has to offer. I highly recommend "Countin' Cars!"

One To Watch

Just saw David Nail live and this guy rocked it! The new songs off this album were amazing and all of his older stuff is fantastic live. I have a feeling he is going to explode really soon. Buy this album, you won't be disappointed!
