NASHVILLE, TN. – (30th June, 2023) – Acclaimed country music singer-songwriter, DavidNail, released Best of Me, his new 4-song EP today. The project includes previous high-streaming releases and the brand new single “Silverado.” It features a blend of contemporary country sounds and introspective storytelling, telling the tale of the evolution of a summer fling as heard on “Sunset Carousel” to the special moment of popping the question in the lauded solo write, “Best of Me.”
This new EP is an avenue of Nail’s artistic progression, following a string of critically acclaimed albums. With his unparalleled vocal talents and captivating songwriting, David Nail continues to solidify his place in country music.
“Silverado is one of the most fun songs I’ve ever been a part of writing, and there was an immediate feeling in the room that this would be a blast playing live” said Nail. “We initially planned to release this last Fall but the pause allowed us to really take another look at it, and I think, enhance the overall sound”.
The title track has received early praise from the likes of Billboard, who said “Nail’s superb vocal talents are country canon, thanks to songs like ‘Red Light’ and ‘The Sound of a Million Dreams’. The singer-songwriter shows off his sentimental side on this solo write, about his wife Catherine… his nuanced vocal, layered over sweet guitar work, embodies the passion, vulnerability and hope embedded in the song’s sentiments. This is sure to be a wedding season favorite”.
“I have always thought this guy had somethingspecial” stated Robert Oermann, Music Row. “His return to disc is a summer romance with a nostalgic tinge. He still sings splendidly and the track (Sunset Carousel) is right in the pocket for beach listening”.
David and his wife, Cat, sat down for an intimate, eight-episode weekly series telling their story about their first meeting at the Nashville staple (Tin Roof), and how David asked Cat’s father for her hand in marriage. Watch the series here: https://youtu.be/CV1VfzWes5I

ABOUT DAVID NAIL:
Hailing from Kennett, Missouri, David Nail is well-respected up and down Music Row. Some might even call him a “tour de force” as his songs pull no punches in evoking the demons with which he has wrestled through much of his life. The GRAMMY-nominated multi-platinum singer/songwriter’s early releases, I’m About To Come Alive, The Sound Of A Million Dreams, I’m A Fire and Fighter, ignited his reputation as an innovator and creative risk-taker yet left Nail feeling restless. This led to the departure of the only record company home he’d ever known, MCA Nashville, where he’d formed friendships that endure even now. Through dealing with his own journey of mental illness and the feeling of needing to “rebel against what people expect you to be,” Nail began making his most “organic” work to date, David Nail & The Well Ravens, with Jason Hall and Andrew Petroff. That project liberated Nail and propelled him into his next adventure. Writing solo for the next few months led to his debut solo independent EP Oh, Mother, a reflective piece of work. Of the title track, Rolling Stone noted that “the song creeps in like a sunrise — quiet, restrained cello and keys are the only underpinning for Nail’s powerful vocals at first. But then it slowly builds to something more massive and majestic.” That release was followed by Bootheel 2020 and Bootheel 2021, projects dedicated to the singer/songwriter’s hometown in the “bootheel” of Missouri. Nail plans on releasing more music, leaving behind any self-imposed restrictions. In Nail’s own words, “My philosophy has always been, I just hope to have a good enough year that I can have a next year while staying as true to myself as I possibly can.” Find more at www.davidnail.com.
