David Nail’s new single “Good at Tonight” is a ready-made anthem for rowdy nights with friends – and it even features some of the Missouri native’s country pals.
John and TJ Osborne of Brothers Osborne co-wrote the up-tempo party tune with Troy Verges and Barry Dean, and thought it would be perfect for Nail. But the CMA Award-winning Vocal Duo of the Year had one stipulation: they had to sing on it, too. (They also performed it live with Nail at last summer’s Watershed Music Festival in Washington.)
With a theme about living for the moment, Nail and the Osbornes’ gang vocals are backed up by pounding drums, electric guitars and even some ringing mandolin, a country-rock combination that fits squarely with the hands-in-the-air, sing-along chorus.
“Come on and dance with me / Throw your arms around me / I’ll follow that fire in your eyes / Let’s take it all right now / Before that moon goes out / Kiss me like there’s no goodbye,” sings Nail, regarded as one of the genre’s finest vocalists.
Nail performs “Good at Tonight,” off his album Fighter, in this concert video for the song, filmed in front of some seriously massive crowds. Needless to say, nobody seems worried about what the morning will bring.
