I’m About To Come Alive

The slow-rolling melancholy of David Nail’s debut hit, “Red Light,” is a perfect introduction to I’m About to Come Alive, much of which settles into the same sort of dusky midtempo groove. As a result, David’s debut coheres as a whole at a moment when many mainstream country albums take a mix-and-match approach that aims for variety but sacrifices coherence. Producers Frank Liddell and Michael Wrucke give David’s strong voice room to breathe throughout the album, even keeping Miranda Lambert’s guest harmony on “Strangers on a Train” quietly restrained in service of the song’s theme.
