An acoustic evening with David Nail begins Friday at 7 p.m. at Park Theater.
Nail, who was born and raised in Kennett, Mo., is a country artist with an agile voice, a gift for songwriting, and a passionate performing style. He emerged in 2002 with the single named “Memphis” and will appear at Park Theater on March 25.
However, that first hit is not his favorite.
“Sound of a Million Dreams,” said Nail, when asked his opinion on the best song he’s ever released. “I think it’s some of the best lyrics I’ve ever heard, period!”
“Sound of a Million Dreams” was released in 2011 on an album of the same name. The song is a tribute to the classic songs and artists that many listened to growing up.
Nail says the love of music and the fact his father was a band director are what prompted him into a country music career, but if he hadn’t become a musician, he’d likely be a MLB umpire or baseball coach.
County music fans are loyal, and Nail has his fair share of them.
“I love ‘em both,” said Nail, when asked which fan mentality he likes the most, enthusiastic or overzealous. “I met two girls in Sacramento, Calif., over a decade ago, and we still chat about songs and such. They are ride or die with me, and they tell me like it is.”
