This Week's Album Releases:
David Nail I'm A Fire: Nail shares writing credit on the album with the likes of Jonathan Singleton, Brandy Clark, Brett Eldredge and The Cadillac Three's Jaren Johnston. Singleton and Johnston perform on the album, too, as do Sarah Buxton, Little Big Town and Lee Ann Womack. Nail says the album represents his newfound energy and enthusiasm about life. It's more upbeat than his previous efforts and even features a cover of "Galveston" in tribute to one of his musical heroes, Glen Campbell.
Eli Young Band 10,000 Towns: After the success of "Even If It Breaks Your Heart" it's no surprise to see a couple of Will Hoge-penned tracks on the album. Contributing songwriters also include Josh Osborne, David Lee Murphy and Billy Montana. Includes "Drunk Last Night" and "Dust," which band members say reminds them all of their wives.
Sundy Best Bring Up The Sun: The duo is made up of Nick Jamerson and Kris Bentley, lifelong friends who grew up together in eastern Kentucky and played music in church and a high school band before forming Sundy Best as a bar band in Lexington. The two wrote every song on the album, and "everything we’ve written is a true story," Jamerson says. "Our music is real, it’s honest, and we’re trying to make something that’s relevant and influence others."
