David Nail’s latest album, I’m A Fire, contains eleven tracks, including his recent #1 “Whatever She’s Got,” as well as his latest single, “Kiss You Tonight.” He has said that the songs on the album would be more upbeat than his previous releases. That may be true, but if you’re looking for songs about trucks, tailgates and beer, you have come to the wrong place.
The mostly mellow songs reflect on love, loss and heartbreak. David’s warm and soulful voice really does shine on every track. Highlights include “When They’re Gone,” on which Little Big Town assists with their always welcome harmonies, and “The Secret,” which is one song for which you must listen to the lyrics. The album concludes with a duet with Lee Ann Womack, a cover of Glen Campbell’s “Galveston.”
I’m A Fire didn’t exactly ignite my speakers (or ears) at first listen, but became a record that I appreciated more every time I heard it.
