David Nail will be the first country artist to release a Baeble Session on Baeblemusic.com. His unplugged performance, filmed in New York City in an old-school barbershop in The Village, debuts on the site today, March 13. Artists who have already released a Baeble Session include Perry Farrell, The Kills, Beach House and Mumford & Sons.

“I wasn’t sure what to think when they called,” David said. “Bands like Foster the People are what they play and what I do isn’t quite in their wheelhouse. But to keep company like that to put country music with those artists and stretch out what we do, that’s the whole idea of what I hope music is about.”

In his session, David gave stripped down performances of “That’s How I’ll Remember You,” “Let It Rain,” and his current single “The Sound of A Million Dreams.” There is also interview footage with David talking about using his lunch money to buy albums, the thrill of singing at Game 7 of the World Series, and his need to write and sing songs that come from real places.

“The Missouri artist’s songs have a timelessness akin to the Great American Songbook, and beneath his southern twang, an emphasis on the big, bold chorus and universally affecting imagery: rain, the radio, piano keys and human relationships,” Baeblemusic.com says of David. “The Sound of a Million Dreams is almost literal. It speaks to the millions of people feeling Nail’s spectrum of emotions all across the continent. Perhaps this is why the music is so appealing; there is something about David Nail’s honesty that supersedes being stuck in one genre, place, or time.”

David is currently on the road with Gavin DeGraw and will join labelmates Billy Currington and Kip Moore on Billy’s first headlining tour.
