Before pursuing his career as a professional musician, David attended Arkansas State University. Before university, while he was still in school, David sang in the school’s choir and even started writing songs.
When he was 20 years of age, David spent a little time in Nashville and the “Music City” wove its magic on him. After college, he moved to Nashville, started to write songs more prolifically, and started to play on odd occasions. It did not take too long before he was spotted by record producer Keith Stegall. And David had a contract with Mercury Records.
In 2002, David released his first single, Memphis. However, since the single did not perform as well, Mercury did not release his album and terminated his contract. After a brief hiatus, David signed another deal with MCA Nashville and released his first MCA single “I’m About to Come Alive.”

Who Is David Nail’s Wife, Catherine Werne?
David Nail married wife Catherine Werne in 2009 and was together with her ever since. He first met Catherine in 2008 when he was on a tour promoting his single “I’m About to Come Alive”.
David was so sure that he had met the girl of his dreams that only two weeks into dating, he sent a note to Catherine’s parents saying that he was going to marry her. More about Catherine: Catherine was from Nashville, Tennesse, and was 36 years of age.
After about a year of dating, David Nail and Catherine Werne married each other in a beautiful wedding ceremony.
The starting of the David-Catherine romance was great but they went through a lot of difficult times after the wedding. Probably the most severe one was David’s depression.
David was suffering from life-long depression but was very reluctant to admit and thus treat his mental illness. As David, himself, admitted later on, during the most difficult times of his depressive state, he was a difficult person to be around. But Catherine stuck by him, helped him get over the disease.
Her dedication and determination to help him over his mental illness finally forced him to admit that he was ill and get help for himself. David did get better after beginning his therapy.
Another hurdle in their otherwise blossoming relationship was fertility issues. David and Catherine were trying to have kids for a long time but were not successful. Eventually, the couple decided to have kids with the help of in-vitro fertilization.
They welcomed their first kids: twins, Lawson Brent, and Lilian Catherine in 2015. The third of their kids, a daughter named Ellie Britton, was born on 19 October 2020.
By 2020, David and Catherine had been together for over 11 years, through good and difficult times. And now they were able to extend their family into four. Until now, their relationship looked strong as steel.
