‘Catch of the Day’ – David Nail ft the Bros Osborne – “Good At Tonight” [VIDEO]

Catch of the Day UniversalToday we turn our focus to an artist who, after being released from his first recording contract without even releasing an album, picked himself up, dusted himself off and has gone on to release 4 top-10 charting albums since 2009.

The son of a high school band director, David Nail grew up with music in the house. The Missouri native first signed with Mercury Records Nashville in 2002, where he released his debut single “Memphis“. The song, which peaked at #52, was intended as the lead single for Nail debut, self-titled album. But the album, which was completed with advance copies being sent to radio stations, failed to materialize commercially. Nail was released from his contract in 2003, and kicked around Nashville for a few years, playing local venues and showcases, preparing for the opportunity he knew would come.

Nail would sign with MCA Records Nashville in 2007 and that opportunity became a reality. His debut album I’m About To Come Alive featured a duet with Miranda Lambert, as well as songs he co-wrote with Kenny Chesney, Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts as well as five other songs Nail co-wrote. The lead single, the album’s title track, was a cover of a song recorded by the rock band Train in 2003; Nail’s version peaked at #47 the country chart. The album’s second single became Nail’s first top-10 hit when “Red Light” peaked at #7.

In February of 2011, Nail released the lead single for his second album The Sound of a Million Dreams. The song, “Let It Rain” featured co-writer Sarah Buxton, and became Nail’s first #1, and the only number 1 single for Buxton as a performer. The album, which was released in November of the same year, release the title track as a second single, and it peaked at #38. A second #1 single for Nail would come in 2013, when “Whatever She’s Got” hit the top of the chart. The song would be the lead single for the album I’m a Fire, which would also feature the top-20 hit “Kiss You Tonight

The second single from Nail’s fourth album, Fighter, which was released in July, is in our spotlight today. Calling on the Brothers Osborne for a little backing support, David Nail and “Good At Tonight” is today’s Catch of the Day, new music you haven’t heard, but you’ll want to hear it again.
