David Nail, former ASU student, entertained the crowd on Monday when he sang at the Northeast Arkansas Regional Fair. Nail was a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity before moving to Nashville to pursue a singing career.
Chapter officers of PiKA presented Nail with an alumni brick prior to his performance. The brick, purchased by the Pikes in Nail's honor, will be placed outside the Cooper Alumni Center. Inscribed on the brick: is "In Honor of David Nail, Pi Kappa Alpha, Kennett, MO."
Nail, who is known for his single, "Let It Rain," has been on the Top 20 country hits numerous times.
He is also known for his single, "Memphis," which put him at the 52 spot on Billboard's Hot Country Singles and Tracks list.
Tonight's entertainment at the fair will feature a gospel night with The Martins and New Beginning Quartet starting at 7 p.m. at the Grandstand.
Friday night there will be a Fox Family and Friends concert also at the Grandstand beginning at 7:30 p.m.
This year's fair will mark the last time it is held at the current location on Stadium Boulevard as it is set to be moved just north of the Farville Curve off Highway 49.
