Since his debut in 2009, Grammy-nominated artist David Nail has made a career of singing songs that few new artists in contemporary country music dare touch; i.e. sad songs. He has had hits with singles about cheating (“Let It Rain”), breakups (“Red Light”) and failed dreams (“Turning Home”) and he has owned every one, singing as if from personal experience. David’s ability to make such tales of heartbreak and loss his own is what defines him as an artist—one capable of recording songs that are deeply relatable to him and to listeners. And his cathartic new album continues that trend, albeit with a series of decidedly upbeat songs.

After scoring his first No. 1 single with “Let It Rain” from 2011’s critically lauded ‘The Sound of a Million Dreams,’ the bourbon-smooth singer spent an inordinate amount of time on tour, giving his entire being to country fans. But more recently, David has a refreshed mindset, which he has used to shape his trail-blazing third album, ‘I’m a Fire’; an album that reflects an artist in control of his craft, a man fulfilled.

But turning in a more up-tempo album after a career of sober material is a challenge, as well as a departure that could take long-time fans by surprise. Tracks like “Broke My Heart,” and “Burnin’ Bed” are truly infectious, with deliberate grooves that carry the listener along. “Broke My Heart” has the vibe of a Tom Petty song and “Burnin’ Bed” features a unique staccato delivery. As always, the ACM Award-nominated singer’s voice is peerless on his latest recording and pleasingly so, whenever and wherever he performs LIVE!
