The Sound of a Million Dreams – David Nail
It’s becoming a niche for David Nail.
The man that couldn’t get a hit for years because he didn’t fit into the traditional country genre has now formed his own. David Nail has created a modern day country soul genre and fans are loving it.
The Sound of a Million Dreams is the title track from David’s sophomore album. The track is another mid-paced song. It’s about a guy looking back on life and remembering a few key moments. There are songs that spark memories and remind him of things that have happened.
It’s the sound of these songs that make his dreams possible. The track is great. As with most David Nail songs it’s the melody and the music that makes the track. The lyrics are good and David’s unique voice lend something to this song that no one else could copy in country music.
The song isn’t what the normal country single would be, but I think it’s going to work for David. Let It Rain was a more mainstream country hit with a killer melody. Now I think fans are ready to really get to know David as they dive into this record. This track – Million Dreams – is one of the best on the collection and it should become another hit. I’m thinking at least a top ten, but that guess might be conservative.
Another interesting side note on this track are the names on the songwriting credit. You might recognize the names Scooter Carusoe and Phil Vassar. Carusoe has written many country songs including a few for Kenny Chesney including Anything But Mine. This song has the same kind of feel.
Vassar is a country star in his own right having numerous number ones and countless hits over the last ten years. Vassar has also been an accomplished songwriter well before he ever became a star. It’s nice to see him back on the songwriting trail with this great track on the Nail record.
I think The Sound of a Million Dreams is another unlikely hit. It’s something most country fans aren’t used to hearing and I think that’s exactly why people will want to have a second listen.
This track is good.
