David Nail’s Double Celebration
David Nail had two extremely good reasons for throwing a party on Tuesday (Feb. 25) at Nashville club One on Cannery Row. David was celebrating a recent No. 1 single, "Whatever She's Got," as well as the upcoming release of his new album, I'm a Fire, set to hit stores on March 4.
For the No. 1 presentation, David was joined onstage by the “Whatever She's Got” writers, Jon Nite and Jimmy Robbins. David took his moment on the podium to praise the writing team and their song, humbly noting, “I didn’t do anything but sing it.” He added that the day was especially sweet because of the early struggles in his career.
“It’s no secret that I’ve been to hell and back,” he told the industry crowd. “I can’t thank you all enough. And I thank these guys for writing the song.” David gave special gratitude to his wife and his record label for continuing to believe in his talent. “I’m so thankful and blessed,” he said as he concluded his remarks. The presentations continued as Mike Dungan, the head of MCA Nashville, David's record label, surprised David and the writers with a special plaque marking the platinum status of "Whatever She's Got," signifying one million sales.
The party also provided an extra treat for the attendees as David played a few tunes from the new album, including “Burnin’ Bed” and, naturally, “Whatever She’s Got.”
