* "Why Don't We Just Dance" took a massive jump from #4 to #1 on Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart and the timing couldn't be better for Turner. He was recently in New York City promoting the release of the Deluxe and Standard versions of his fourth studio album, HAYWIRE, in stores now. Turner performed on The Late Show with David Letterman for the first time this past Monday night and due to unforeseen circumstances the taping ran over time and Turner's performance aired Wednesday.

Turner was recently featured in Billboard’s Best Bets of 2010 and he is Country Weekly’s cover story which hit stands on February 8.

* David Nail’s new single “Turning Home” has been most added for three weeks and David’s really starting to get noticed. He will be performing on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson Friday night at 12:35a ET/PT on CBS and will join Miranda Lambert for her Roadside Bars and Pink Guitarstour. Valentine’s Day is around the corner and David and his recent bride will celebrate it for the first time as husband and wife, but he remembers the days before he was on his way to country stardom and had to think outside the box for thoughtful, yet inexpensive gifts: “The one Valentine’s Day memory that comes to mind was, I was dating a girl one time, and I was not high on funds, and I was trying to think of all these creative things I could do with very little money. I got the idea that I was going to buy three roses of three different colors and give them to her for Valentine’s Day. And I wrote out a little note and I said, ‘This whatever color rose is for the good that we’ve had and this next color is for the bad, but then this red rose represents the future,’ and I probably told her it was going to be all grand. Obviously, this story is not about my wife, so it didn’t turn out too well. I remember in my early twenties, I thought that I really was changing the world with this card and it probably only cost me no more than fifteen bucks which back then was a victory in itself.”
