I highly recommend this CD, not just for country music fans.
K. Murray
In addition to his great voice, Nail has songwriting credit on about a third of the songs, which to me lends some integrity to his music as well.

I listened to this album the first time from a library copy, and loved it immediately.

I'm About To Come Alive is David Nail's debut CD, and he has set a pretty high bar for future releases. While country is not my main genre of music, I know that I like this CD. Nail sings in a smooth tenor that is very expressive and earnest. He is at his best on the slower, bluesy tracks such as "I'm About To Come Alive" and "Clouds". Both of those songs also benefit from the background vocals of Natalie Hemby. She lends her voice to five of the 11 tracks, and she and Nail produce very good harmonies on the choruses of these songs. What makes this CD is the genuineness of Nail's delivery whether he is singing about relationships as on the songs already mentioned or about more general topics such as a yearning for specific places as on "Mississippi" and "Missouri" or chasing his dreams on "Again". He sings in a way that one cannot help but know that these songs mean something to him. This CD also avoids falling into an instrumental rut. The opener "Mississippi" features a nice string accompaniment while "Looking For A Good Time", "This Time Around", and "Missouri" all have Hammond B-3 Organ.

All in all, I suppose that I'm About To Come Alive has to be slotted in the Country genre, but I would put it in the more general category of plain old good music. David Nail has given us a CD that is worthy of the attention of all music fans. I have thoroughly enjoyed this CD, and I think that you will too.

This entire album was slow and had the feel of old time country music. He has a beautiful voice, no doubt, but there is not one up beat song on the entire album. You could slow dance to every one. I like a mixture of up beat and slow songs on an album, so this one just wasn't for me. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the slow songs, but if you aren't a fan of older country or you don't enjoy slow songs, this one probably isn't for you.

David Nail offers up this collection of songs in a well-produced, radio-friendly album. Nail has a solid voice that gels with the songs and the pop-country-rock genre. While this is a solid effort I found it lacking in originality and missing enough hooks in most of the songs to make the music truly memorable. Nail has a lot of potential, and with development of more originality and inclusion of more memorable songs he could become a major country music star.

I found this album to be solid from start to end with all tracks but one receiving either 4 or 5 stars. My least favorite track, which I gave 3 stars, was the title track. The title track wasn't bad, per se, but Train performs it much better and I'm at a loss as to why David Nail would pick "I'm About to Come Alive" as his title track when he had so many other, outstanding and original works to choose from. This is a minor complaint against a truly outstanding album and there are very few albums that I want to own every single track on the album and this is one of them.

"Red light" is one of the best songs in years. The video was a fantastic surprise; I love NOT seeing every redneck country singer in a pickup truck, on a farm. That was a brave choice that I know he took some Hell for.
Not only are the lyrics amazing, but David Nail has such an incredible voice, that how he sings the songs make you get a lump in your throat listening. It's that moving.
All the songs are good, but Red Light is a Home Run! So is "I'm about to come alive", but I was just knocked out by this singer. He should have a long career ahead.

I couldn't find this CD at my local stores, even though David Nail is from my hometown. So I turned to Amazon.com and ordered it there, received it within a very short time and have enjoyed it ever since. It is a fantastic CD that has not been out of my CD player since I got it. I would recommend it to anyone; and Amazon.com was the vehicle of choice for me and will be again!

David Nail is a man worth listening to, he has a lot of heart and soul. First listened to on a quiet Sunday morning, I quickly learned that David is not background music. He's somebody that demands and deserves full attention. David is a complex artist who you want to hear, understand, and enter his world. I couldn't go 5 stars because after my first listen David didn't leave me remembering him from other talented artists ... that is for sure a true talent he doesn't quite possess yet. But such talent is a learned skill and David is on the right track.

I'm not a big country fan. I don't "feel" the newer artists. They seem too commercial to me. Too much flash and not enough lyrics.
David's debut album is simple but it says it. It's not flashy or hardcore country. It's what I would consider easy listening country.
It's got a lot of feeling behind it. I could listen to this album over and over even though it isn't full of radio friendly hits.
David Nail reminds me of the Band "Train" only country, only better. This is country music and it is not pretentious.
I liked Mississippi, Red Light and I'm About To Come Alive. Check out some of his music on youtube. You won't regret it.
