David Nail announced to fans’ delight that he will be releasing a brand new EP titled Bootheel 2021 on Friday, November 5. The project is a continuation of his previously released Bootheel 2020 that came out in December of last year. This new collection of songs showcases his love and admiration for his hometown and family as you can hear special contributions from twins — daughter, Lilli Cate, and son, Lawson — in the prelude and postlude. The word “bootheel” holds a ton of meaning to David as it is often used to describe the region of Missouri that he grew up in and so fondly writes and sings about. Pre-save Bootheel 2021 here.

David Nail Performs At George’s Majestic Lounge In Fayetteville, Ar. David Nail visited the Natural State this past Friday, September 16, where he headlined at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville. The night started out and ended with Robert Ellis as they played before and after Nail on the front stage. The crowd was very enthusiastic and anxious for Nail to take the main stage and they showed their gratitude when he did so. I’m not sure if it was the energy from the crowd or just his normal routine, but the singer and his band played a powerful show with a solid sound. He performed fan favorites including “Red Light” and “Let It Rain”, which is currently sitting in the Top 20. After being pulled back on stage for an encore, he played his hit “Turning Home.” This week Nail will keep his momentum going when he hits Jonesboro, El Paso, Albuquerque, and Amarillo all before Saturday! If you are near any those areas, I suggest you try and catch a show! With a voice like his, I am very interested to see what comes of his in the process, sophomore album! As the anticipation kills me, I guess I’ll have to wait patiently with the rest of the world. Until then, here is the video for his current single, “Let It Rain!” [youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvxAiLqF7C0&ob=av2n]

David Nail’s “Let It Rain” Video Strikes A Nerve. Singer/songwriter David Nail is talented to be sure. He manages to encompass the bittersweetness of broken relationships and lost loves in an honest and relatable way that avoids being cliche through songs like “Red Light“, “Clouds” and “Missouri” featured on his first album, I’m About To Come Alive. His latest single, “Let It Rain” seems to follow the same vein. In true country form, “Let It Rain” is all about cheating. The interesting thing, though, is it is told from the sorrowful perspective of the remorse-filled cheater. The song truly feels honest, and is just as relatable as David’s earlier songs. However, the video for “Let It Rain” puts an entirely different spin on the song. Quite frankly, it robs the lyrics of their honesty creating a shady, decidedly un-country vibe. From the opening shot of “the mistress”/”mistake”/”one-night stand” showering in the hotel bathroom to the sleek, and modern style of the hotel in which the video is set, the entire setting presents an image contrary to the remorse in the lyrics and Nail’s voice. It is difficult to believe the message of the lyrics or to feel anything beyond disdain when we’re seeing the aftermath of the affair which caused a wife pain and ended a marriage. Another, startling aspect of the video is the distance between the two characters in the video. They are never seen to interact at all, which just adds to the assumption that the affair was of little meaning. This creates even less sympathy, and causes a disconnect between the listener and the song. Overall, the video on some levels ruins the song and leaves me feeling unsettled, and unsympathetic. You can watch the video now, and let me know what you think. [youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvxAiLqF7C0]
