With just a few days until the release of David Nail’s new album, "I’m a Fire," Nashville Edge brings you an exclusive first peek at one of the album’s best tracks, "Countin' Cars."
You can hear the song in the clip above, where the Grammy-nominated singer explains why it was one of the very first songs he cut for the album.
"I knew very early on that it was going to be a great live song," he says. "We actually open our show with it, and it's a great tone-setter ... to show that I'm not some guy that’s going to sit on a stool and sing ballads all night. We’re going to rock a little bit, and hopefully this is the beginning of a journey we’re going to take you on.”
"Countin' Cars" is one of 11 new tracks on "I’m a Fire," set for a March 3 release. David co-wrote four of the album’s tracks.
Two of the project’s other highlights are a collaboration with Little Big Town on the track "When They’re Gone (Lyle County)," and a cover of a tune from one of his musical heroes. Glen Campbell’s "Galveston" is re-imaged as a duet with Lee Ann Womack.
Another of the album's tracks, "Whatever She's Got," has already topped the charts, and sold more than a million downloads.
David is currently on the road as part of Darius Rucker’s True Believers tour.
His new album is available for pre-order on iTunes here.
