Academy of Country Awards nominee for Radio Station of the Year in the Medium market, and recent NAB Crystal Heritage Award winning KUZZ 107.9 in Bakersfield, CA is proud to present Missouri native David Nail for a SOLD-OUT show at Buck Owens Crystal Palace, February 11, 2012. The show will be the debut performance for David at the renowned home of Buck Owens Crystal Palace.
In a recent conversation with KUZZ on-air personality Toni-Marie she stated, "We are thrilled. David's show sold-out in two days and anytime we can put an artist like this in front at Buck's house, everyone wins. David's recent #1 is just a start of more to come for this artist." David is no stranger either in his noted appreciation for all those who have helped along the way in his over 10 year career. Toni-Marie is mentioned on the CD insert of his latest release, "Sound of a Million Dreams" and was blown away by this gesture. "I am a big fan of David's and just feel it is my job to spread the good word. I have never literally heard an angel sing, but in my Heaven the boy angels sound like David Nail."
It seems David did not truly hit his full stride till the release of his debut album, "I'm About To Come Alive" in 2009, which brought us the Top-Ten and ACM nominated hit, "Red Light" and the Grammy nominated song for Best Male Country Vocal Performance, "Turning Home."
As quoted on David's web site, "Imagery is so much a part of what draws me to the songs I record. I pick songs with cities in their lyrics or the names of girls because I want you to know exactly where I'm coming from and what I'll be talking about. I love painting those pictures. I've always felt that an album's title was the most important thing besides the music. It automatically gives someone an idea of what to expect. If you had to tell a story of me to this point in my career, "The Sound of a Million Dreams really sums it up." http://www.davidnail.com/bio.aspx
David's voice is incomparable; it is smooth, full of strong emotions and he is in total control of this vocal instrument knowing when to let it out at full tilt or pulling the reins back in. He has recently earned his first #1 single, "Let It Rain", a song about one of the main-stays in country music; a spouse who seeks forgiveness for "the one night I forgot to wear that ring.". The single made history as the longest rising #1 since the inception of the country radio charts. This long trek truly showed the determination of his fans in "Nail-Nation" who worked tirelessly to keep the song out there. "The Sound of a Million Dreams" will be the next release off his sophmore album of the same name.
“There are so many people to thank, so many people who believed and helped and fought,” Nail said. “There have been so many moments when it felt like it would all fall apart, but people kept in there with us. They didn’t want to give up, either, and that’s maybe the mark of making a difference with a song or an album: when people care enough to not just move on. Right now, I feel like the luckiest man in the world.” (On the day of the ASCAP celebration for the #1 of "Let It Rain") http://www.davidnail.com/news_d.aspx?nid=7366
David played a show in Southern California a few years back, and at that time I told my friends, "You need to watch this guy, he is going to be someone to contend with." I am proud to say now that many friends have said, "You were right", and you know I love saying, "I told you so." The show at Bucks will be the first of many of David's Western swing. He will be with Martina McBride on 2/14at NOKIA Theatre L.A. Live, 2/15 at the historic Troubadour in West Hollywood, 2/16at Club Rodeo in San Jose, 2/17 at The Davis Graduate in Davis, and rounding it off with a show in Las Vegas on 2/18 at Santa Fe Station.
David Nail's music has made me "Come Alive" and aware of what a talented and gifted artist this young man truly is. I am attending three of the shows out West and wishing I could do them all. It will be a true honor to see him on the stage at the Crystal Palace on the 11th; that is a star making step when you have arrived in this house that is a true tribute to Buck Owens. Thanks again to KUZZ in Bakersfield for giving me this opportunity to catch a show of this importance.
