Nail and Young Go For the Gold

Following his recent ACM nominations for Male Vocalist and Single of the Year, Chris Young has now earned two RIAA Gold certifications for his chart-topping hits “You” and “Voices”

“You,” which Young co-wrote with Luke Laird, marked his fifth consecutive trip to the top of the chart. “Voices” actually broke a 25-year Billboard record, making only the second time in the modern Billboard chart era that an artist has re-released a song that went to No. 1.

Over the next two weeks, Young has tour stops scheduled in Amherst, MA; Fayetteville, NC; Greensboro, NC; Hershey, PA; Lexington, KY; North Charleston, SC; and Youngstown, OH.

Similarly, David Nail has earned dual RIAA Gold certifications for his singles “Red Light” and recent No. 1 “Let It Rain” for downloads exceeding 500k.

“It was funny to see ‘Red Light’ starting to pick up downloads again,” comments Nail, “but I think when people heard or bought ‘Let It Rain,’ they went back and found it. It makes me feel good that the songs I’ve recorded have staying power. It’s not just about being a hit, but it’s the moments the songs contain being kind of timeless.”

Nail has dates scheduled this weekend in California and Nevada, but will soon head out for several dates in early March with Gavin DeGraw.
