Debut album artist David Nail is moving up the career ladder, with a nomination for Best Male Country Vocal Performance at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards.

As part of Trends‘ rundown of the nominees, we’re looking at whether Nail really has that winning way.

davidnailtrend Trends: David Nail Tries To Pin Down A Grammy“Turning Home” has a relatively small listenership, although this is growing slowly. It’s not his biggest track, by some stretch: previous single “Red Light” is far more popular, with 147,219 scrobbles from 50,701 listeners. For a relatively new artist, a track they’re not best known for seems an outside bet for the Grammy.

In addition, the accolade hasn’t been taken by an artist on their debut album since Roger Miller in 1964, when the newly-created award was known as Best Country & Western Vocal Performance – Male. Could Nail break a 46-year pattern? Trends is bringing you news and profiles from Grammy nominees all the way to the ceremony. You can catch the 2011 Grammys on February 13th, 8pm on CBS.
