MCA Nashville will release David Nail‘s debut album I’m About To Come Alive on Tuesday, August 18. Produced by Frank Liddell and Michael Wrucke, Nail is credited with writing nearly half of the 11-track record. “I think every artist that moves to Nashville has a list of things they hope to achieve, and having a record in stores has always been near the very top for me,” explains Nail. “This has been a two-year process of highs and lows, but now being on the verge of accomplishing that, it feels as sweet as I ever imagined.” Showing his biggest audience increase to date, Nail’s single “Red Light” has been one of the most-added songs at radio the last two weeks. Nail recently starred in the video for the track alongside his new bride Catherine. The video was filmed in Nashville and will premiere later this month. He will spend the 4th of July performing at Mud Island in Memphis, and is the subject of a feature on www.MarieClaire.com.
