David Nail is mourning the loss of his grandmother today. The ‘Kiss You Tonight’ singer shared the news with fans on social media Thursday afternoon (Aug. 14) after asking for prayers on Wednesday night.

“My heart is broken. RIP Mimmaw,” Nail writes.

The message comes just hours after the singer tweeted: “My thoughts are everywhere tonight, prayers too... Prayers needed in suburban St. Louis as well. Just a sad, sad week!"

No further details about the cause of death are available. In 2011, Nail credited his grandmother with steering him toward country music. He told the Southeast Missourian she loved Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks and Vince Gill.
