Country Star David Nail to Perform on June 3 at the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear
DETROIT, Mich. (March 30, 2018) – Grammy-nominated country music artist David Nail will perform on the 96-3 WDVD/NASH FM 93-1 Entertainment Stage in a Sunday afternoon matinee concert on June 3 at the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear.
Nail will bring one of the most distinctive and powerful voices in country music along with a blend of Mississippi-delta sounds to the Raceway at Belle Isle Park just prior to the final Verizon IndyCar Series race of the action-packed Grand Prix weekend. All Sunday Grand Prix ticket holders can enjoy the concert and all June 3 performances on the 96-3 WDVD/NASH FM 93-1 Entertainment Stage, located in the Meijer Fan Zone, at no additional cost.
Nail has produced a pair of No. 1 hit singles on the country charts including “Let it Rain” and “Whatever She’s Got.” He released his first of four studio albums in 2009 – I’m About to Come Alive – which peaked at number 19 on the US Country Music charts while the song “Red Light” became his first top-10 single. “Let it Rain” was Nail’s top hit off of his second album The Sound of a Million Dreams – which reached as high as number eight on the US Country charts. Nail’s most recent albums – I’m a Fire and Fighter – both reached number three on the US Country charts. Rolling Stone Country named Nail’s I’m a Fire tour as one of the “must-see concert tours” and Nail has toured with some of country music’s biggest superstars including Taylor Swift, Darius Rucker, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Sugarland, Gavin DeGraw and Kenny Chesney.
