David Nail

David Brent Nail (born May 18, 1979) is an American country music artist. In 2002, he debuted the single "Memphis" from an unreleased album for Mercury Records Nashville. Five years later, he signed with MCA Nashville - which, like Mercury, is under the ownership of Universal Music Group Nashville - and in August 2009 released the album I'm About to Come Alive. It produced three singles: the title track, "Red Light", and "Turning Home"; the latter two reached Top 20. His second studio album, The Sound of a Million Dreams, was released in November 2011; "Let It Rain" hit No. 1 in January 2012.

David Nail's first recording contract was with Mercury Nashville Records in 2002.[2] While there, he recorded a self-titled debut album, which was produced by Keith Stegall and John Kelton.


The lead-off single, "Memphis", reached number 52 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts. Deborah Evans Price gave the song a mostly-positive review, calling it a "solid performance" but saying that she considered its storyline implausible. Advance copies of the album were sent to radio stations, but it was not commercially released.
