David Nail’s wife Catherine is on notice: The country star wants a baby in 2013.

In a conversation with SheKnows on the red carpet of the American Country Awards, Nail sweetly admitted he wants to be a daddy this year.

“I feel like I’ve always gotta rise to the pressure, that’s why I’m being out and open about it,” said Nail, whose wife was with him at the awards this year. “Maybe it’ll happen, one way or another.”

One way or another? Yes, Nail jokes, “I’ve gotta go to Toys ‘R’ Us and just kind of hijack one. I’m going to get one, by God.”

Nail, who was nominated for Single of the Year: Breakthrough Artist for his No. 1 country hit “Let It Rain,” lost to Brantley Gilbert’s “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.”

Maybe that’s why Nail was feeling a little envious of country artists currently experiencing more success.

Touring with Taylor Swift, for example, made him somewhat self-conscious.

“To see how evolved that show was, and how involved she was, how her fingerprints were just on everything,” Nail said. “Obviously for her to be so young, it was just very inspiring at times and it made you feel like you were worthless because you know you’re 10, 11 years older than her.”

Yeah, Taylor Swift makes a lot of people feel old and past it, David Nail. It’s not just you.
