David Nail Reflects on ‘The Sound of a Million Dreams’ in New Video
“Everyone has that song or songs,” David Nail says of his latest single, ‘The Sound of a Million Dreams.’ “That’s the most amazing thing about music: the way songs can hold your life. It does for me, and for just about everybody I know, so I didn’t want this video to take anything away from the dreams that other people have in their music.”
The emerging country star holds true to his word, releasing a simple yet visually stunning music video for the second single from his album of the same name. When it came to choosing a location for this latest clip, he — along with director Chris Hicky — felt the historic Alabama Theater in Birningham, Ala. was the most fitting location.
“The people there are so soulful,” shares the Missouri native. “You can feel the music moving through them, and you know it’s a part of who they are. We didn’t even use extra people in our video, but you can feel their passion for the songs and artists in the air.”
The clip kicks off with an old home video of 6-year-old David Nail taking his seat at the drums, surrounded by adult musicians — the start of his dream. When the video picks up, we find him — today’s version — singing soulfully in the empty Alabama theater, but a montage of young shots of the singer plays throughout the reel.
Nail is currently on the road promoting the album ‘The Sound of a Million Dreams,’ which features the singer’s first No. 1 single, ‘Let it Rain.’ Click here to view his upcoming tour dates alongside label mates Billy Currington and Kip Moore.
