David Nail, coming to Pop's, shows his love of St. Louis in new song

Nail brings his “Bootheel 2021 Tour” to Pop’s in Sauget on Sept. 24. The tour allows him to perform in venues that are new to him, and he’s seeing “crowds have forgotten what it’s like to be at a show. They’re feeling their way through.” Touring during a pandemic requires a lot of trust, and that goes both ways. Fans trust that he and his band have been taking care of themselves and “not bringing anything with us where we’re going.” He expects the same from his fans. Pop’s requires patrons to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test. “There is a degree of risk involved,” he says of touring. “That’s the unfortunate thing.” Nail points out that venues and promoters “have really forced the artists to be as safe as possible. A lot of us have gotten vaccinated. I know there’s people on both sides of the fence.” The decision to get vaccinated was an easy one for him. It meant he would be able to perform again after a year without work. “People on Twitter tell me I’m an idiot — I’ve gotta do what I’ve gotta do,” he says. “But I hate it gets to the point where people have to force people’s hands. You’d like everybody to make the decision on their own. ... ”It’s like when my wife tells me to do something. I was going to do it anyway. But I want to do it on my own.” Nail started playing concerts occasionally in March. His schedule is more steady now, but it’s not quite back to normal. "Bootheel 2020" by David Nail  “It took me back to a time I love,” he says of the music heard on the series that so far has included “Bootheel 2020,” which he wrote and produced. The EP includes “Back Home,” “Nobody Knows” and “Roach Motel.” Nail is gearing up for the release of “Bootheel 2021,” which will feature “St. Louis.” He will release the song on the same day as his concert at Pop’s. “St. Louis” is a slow, spacious ballad that he says has a tenderness. “It’s different for me,” he says. “I don’t have a lot of love songs.” It was a different kind of song for him. Often, when he writes the first line of a tune, he doesn’t know where it’s going from there. “This was a song from the very first verse I knew where it was going and what was taking place, and I knew it would be called ‘St. Louis,’” he says. Among other local references, the song makes mention of the Cardinals and Willie McGee, Nail’s favorite ballplayer growing up. He wrote and produced “St. Louis” and recorded it with his band in bits and pieces because it wasn’t easy to get everyone together. Still, he says, “there was something rewarding about doing it organically. It was a lot of fun. I’ve been really proud of myself for ‘Bootheel 2020’ and ‘Bootheel 2021,’ coming out for writing the songs myself. Now I trust I can write songs by myself.” Though Nail has never lived in St. Louis, he has spent a lot of time here. He recently took his son to a Cardinals game, a “surreal and emotional moment for me, knowing that’s where I went to my first game. St. Louis has a special place in my heart.” What David Nail, Karissa Ella, Jordan Suter & the High Road • When 8 p.m. Sept. 24 • Where Pop’s, 1403 Mississippi Avenue, Sauget • How much $30-$59.50 • More info ticketweb.com
