Earlier this month, Grammy-winning country artist David Nail appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman to celebrate the March 4 release of his new album I’m a Fire.
With his Antique Sunburst Guild D-55 in hand, Nail performed the country-pop lead single “Whatever She’s Got.” The tune has become a staple on country radio, reaching No.1 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart in February.
While in the middle of an acoustic tour in support of live album Acoustic at the Ryman, Band of Horses also made time for an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show where they performed a stripped down version of one of their most popular songs, “No One’s Gonna Love You.”
The performance features guitarist Tyler Ramsey on his Guild Orpheum acoustic guitar.
Country artist David Nail will release new album I’m A Fire on March 4.
The 11-track effort is a follow-up to his critically-acclaimed 2011 album, The Sound of a Million Dreams, which featured no. 1 hit “Let It Rain.”
Fans have already gotten a taste of what’s in store with I’m A Fire lead single “Whatever She’s Got,” which was written about his wife Catherine.
“There’s so many moments on this record that make me think about the last four years that I’ve been married, and ‘I’m A Fire’ just sums it all up,” he explains. “[I'm a Fire] says, ‘I’ve walked through flames, come out on the other end, and the foremost reason is because of you.’”
The album also includes a collaboration with Little Big Town on “When They’re Gone (Lyle County),” and a duet with Lee Ann Womack on his own version of Glen Campbell‘s “Galveston.”

As PG notes, the 1954 Guild catalog described the M-75 as follows: “The use of an exclusively developed lighter semi-solid body construction gives the Guild Aristocrat a magnificence of tone never before achieved in a guitar this size.”
PG goes on to detail the specific features of the 1958 model, and shares the current value for the vintage guitar.
