Now that he's been a successful supporter on someone else's tour, David Nail is ready to hit the road and headline one of his own. He's lighting the I'm a Fire Tour this fall with dates in several cities.

The 'Kiss You Tonight' singer is hitting the road in September and making 22 stops along the way, with more dates expected later. He's even making a few pitstops in his home state of Missouri. Previously, Nail had served as an opener for both Darius Rucker and Lady Antebellum.

"It's so much fun to open up for big acts and know that there's going to be five, 10, or even 15,000 people out there when you play, but it's always difficult to only play for 35 minutes," he tells Rolling Stone Country. "I've always felt like we benefit so much more when we can really lay back and play an entire 75 to 90 minute show. We can show the range of the past three records."

One of his tour stops is New York City, which he considers a dream come true. He'll play Irving Plaza in November.

"That's the mecca for me. You move to Nashville to be a country music singer and I'd be lying if I said I thought I'd be playing New York City one day," he says. "I don't think I even realized that country singers went to New York City. I can remember the first time we played there, it was the most nervous I'd ever been. The label is there, you have a lot of press there, and fans. It's like playing a showcase in Nashville except that you're in the greatest city in the world. You try your best to treat it like any other show, but you know damn well it's nothing like every other show."
