David Nail’s video for the debut song “Let It Rain” from his forthcoming sophomore album made its world premiere on VEVO today. The dramatic video, co-directed by David Nail and Stephen Shepherd, captures the pain of a man who realizes that a passionate indiscretion has probably cost him his marriage.
“I had just seen the movie The Last Kiss, and it was a pretty powerful ending,” said Nail of his inspiration in writing the song. “I just tried to paint the picture of what that guy seemed to be feeling, when he realized the significance of what he had just done!
“With the video, I tried to recreate the rawness and reality of that moment,” he continued. “I wanted to grab people’s attention immediately, and I feel like Stephen and I accomplished that. I can’t wait for the fans to see it because I think they will see this video is different than the past ones I’ve done.”
“Let It Rain,” co-written by Nail and Jonathan Singleton, is currently climbing the country singles charts.
The Grammy-nominated recording artist is currently in the studio finishing his second album for MCA Nashville. It is the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed MCA Nashville debut I’m About To Come Alive which contains the hits “Turning Home” for which he received a Grammy nomination for Best Male Country Performance, and “Red Light” which reached no. 6 on the country singles chart and held the record for the longest-charted single in Mediabase history at 42 weeks. That single earned him an Academy of Country Music Award nomination for Single of the Year.
