After that song’s short run on the charts David struggled in the country world until about 2009 when he came back with another major label release. The single Red Light cracked the top ten later on and made David a star. Another top twenty hit followed with the Kenny Chesney penned song Turning Home and now David is moving on to a new single and a new album.
Let It Rain is another track unlike anything else on country radio right now. What makes David unique is his ability to blend country, pop, and even a bit of soul or R&B. There is a passion, an emotion in his voice that sets him apart from other country artists.
Let It Rain is about a guy that threw everything away for one night of cheating. The guy realizes he messed up big time and things are never going to be the same. He threw away seven years of a good life with a good woman for a one night stand of lust and sin. Throwing it all away doesn’t seem worth it now and it’s raining down on the narrator hard.
These are the kinds of songs that made country the most popular music in the nation. Cheating, loving, and living life are the topics country artists sing about in their songs. Cheating is not a comfortable topic to discuss, but it happens in the real world.
I love Let It Rain from David Nail. This guy could find himself filling a void in country music for a long time. I think he’s already been nominated for a Grammy and with songs like this he could be a regular at the award shows.
