David Nail is pretty much one of those singers who can sing just about anything and nail it (no pun intended) on the first try. His powerful pipes, smooth voice and emotional delivery are what makes him a definite staple country music. Nail is always one to hear praise on a job well done, but he often finds himself in the same situation looking at other artists in the same light. In this case, Adele.

Nail recently did a country rendition of Adele’s smash hit ‘Someone Like You,’ and the moving black and white video for the tune hit the singer’s official Facebook page. The opportunity to sing one of music’s greatest young talent’s hit songs was not only an honor for Nail, but also gave him a whole new level of respect for the pop icon.

“It was the hardest thing I’ve ever sang,” Nail confides to Taste of Country. “Oh my gosh … it was so tough. I recorded it for this fun little video, but gosh … it was so hard. Like it really humbled me because I was almost embarrassed while I was singing it because I thought it sucked. It took a long time to get.”

Nevertheless, Nail sounds absolutely amazing and the tune will give you goosebumps from head to toe when you give it a listen!

Apparently ‘Someone Like You’ is not the only cover Nail is performing lately. In his current stage show, Nail is covering another classic, but is keeping which song it is a surprise. “We’re doing one right now that I think throws folks a curve ball,” Nail says with a sly smile. “I can’t tell you what it is though … it’s a surprise. It references shoes, I’ll tell you that. That’s all you get.”

Guess we’ll have to all head out to see Nail live now to see what he’s talking about! Check out his Adele cover below.
