Similar to a young Blake Shelton, consistent radio success has been hard to come by for David Nail. In the 7 singles he’s released to country radio since 2008, his success has been a roller coaster ride. His singles have peaked on the charts at 47–7–20–1–38–1, never able to garner real consistency on the airwaves. He’s looking to turn that around with his latest single “Kiss You Tonight”, the sophomore single from his brand-new album I’m A Fire, riding the waves of his chart-topper “Whatever She’s Got”.
“Kiss You Tonight” isn’t like many of the songs on country radio right now. Typically going into spring/summer, the singles being released are more of a fast-paced party type sound. “Kiss You Tonight” has more of a laid-back contemporary sound to it, which could potentially help it’s cause on the charts. The song was co-written by former American Idol champion David Cook, with established country songwriters Jay Knowles (who’s had success with George Strait/Alan Jackson/Rodney Atkins), and Trent Summar (who’s had success with Gary Allan/Billy Currington/Kip Moore). The song finds David Nail wishing to find redemption in the lost girl of his dreams, nothing unfamiliar for country music.
David Nail’s amazing & infectious vocals, combined with the familiar message in the lyrics, should help this single find the consistent success he’s been longing for on country radio. “Kiss You Tonight” garners an A rating from me, and it’s hard to imagine this song not finding the success it deserves.
