Looks like the music industry is finally recognizing the talent David Nail has. The country singer’s beautiful version of Adele’s “Someone Like You” is featured all day today on VEVO’s homepage, and will be slotted into random country music playlists all day today. His cover will also appear on the country music playlists on sister site YouTube.
“We did the video just for friends who’d heard me sing the song backstage and wanted to have access to it. It brings so many things out of you as a vocalist, so I wanted to make sure the visuals lived up to it, but I never thought anyone would pay attention to it. I certainly didn’t expect it to turn into something like this,” said David.
Check out David’s version of Adele’s hit pop song here and tell us which version you like the best – the original or the remake. Here’s hoping for a David and Adele future Crossroads episode!
We’ve always been huge fans of the unbelievably talented David Nail, and this video only proves why. Flanked by only a piano player, Nail adds his powerful country twang to the already haunting lyrics. Check out David’s soulful, stripped down country rendition of Adele‘s “Someone Like You.” Let us know if you love it as much as we do!
No one can deny the powerhouse that was Adele’s single “Rolling In The Deep” this year. While country music fans shouldn’t expect a country single from the British pop sensation anytime soon, Pistol Annies member Miranda Lambert performed her version of the smash hit last year at her Cause For The Paws annual event in Tyler, Texas.
Watch Miranda’s version of the single below and let us know which you like better: the original or Miranda’s.
This week’s music video is The Wreckers‘ number one hit single, “Leave The Pieces.” I have always been a big Michelle Branch fan so when she formed The Wreckers with Jessica Harp back in 2005, I was excited to check out their music. Their album Stand Still, Look Pretty is still one of my favorite country albums, and is comprised of some really great music. The girls returned to their solo careers after just one record, but the duo is still one of my favorite country groups and I hope to hear more country music from Branch and Harp in the future. Meanwhile, keep an eye out for Branch’s new mainstream album that is slated to drop this year.

It’s “Video Picks of the Week” time again! I hope you are enjoying the weekly videos. Don’t forget to leave some comments and any suggestions for videos or artists you would like to see in the future.
This week’s music video is Martina McBride‘s powerful ballad, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It.” The song is the second single off of her new album, Eleven, and also just garnered McBride a Grammy Award nomination for “Best Country Solo Performance.” The song and video are very emotional with an inspiring message of hope, and McBride’s powerhouse vocals were the perfect fit for the track. Thank-you to Martina for recording this song, for all it represents, and for the awareness it brings.
The live performance pick is Blake Shelton performing his number one hit, “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking,” for AOL Sessions. The song was the second single off of his EP, All About Tonight. It is one of my all-time favorite Blake tracks.
I think most of us can agree that not many artists have had a bigger year than Adele, and deservingly so. This week’s cover song video is Adele and Darius Rucker‘s beautiful performance of Lady Antebellum‘s “Need You Now” at last year’s CMT Artists of the Year.
