(born in Kennett, Missouri
) is an American
country music artist. In 2002, he debuted with the single "Memphis", a #52 on the Billboard
country charts and the lead-off single to his unreleased, self-titled debut album. In 2007, he signed to MCA Nashville (which, like Mercury, is under the ownership of Universal Music Group Nashville
), and released his second chart single, a cover of Train
's "I'm About to Come Alive". This song will be included on a forthcoming album of the same name.
Nail's first recording contract was with Mercury Nashville Records in 2002. While on the label, he recorded a self-titled debut album, which was produced by Keith Stegall
and John Kelton. The lead-off single, "Memphis", reached #52 on the Billboard
Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs
) charts. Although advance copies of the album were sent to radio stations, the album was not released, and Stegall was fired from Mercury not long afterward.
Nail signed to MCA Nashville in April 2007. His first release for the label, "I'm About to Come Alive" (a song previously recorded by the alternative rock band Train on their 2003 album My Private Nation), was released in early 2008 as his second single. This song, which peaked at #47 on the country charts, is the first single and title track from his forthcoming MCA album.
