James Otto (My most favorite singer)

If it is OK to tell y'all about my most favorite singer here, James Otto is his name and if you like both country and soul music, they are put together when James sings! This is what has gone to radio so far from him.

"I Just Got Started Loving You"-from his Sunset Man album, a #1 for two weeks making it the #1 country song of 2008, and scored James his very first Grammy award nomination the following year.

"For You" -from his Sunset Man album

"These Are The Good Ole Days" -from his Sunset Man album

"Since You Brought It Up" -Because this song was never placed on an album, it is only available where ever songs can be purchased online.

"A Groovy Little Summer Song" -from his album named Shake What God Gave Ya!

"Soldiers & Jesus" -from his album named Shake What God Gave Ya!

The following are more of my most favorite performances of his.

"Dam* Right" -from his second album named Sunset Man

"Never Say Good Bye" -from his first album named Days Of Our Lives

"Lets Just Let Go" -from his third and newest album named Shake What God Gave Ya!

"You Don't Act Like My Woman" -also from his Sunset Man album and co-written and co-produced by Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts

"The Blues Can't Find Me Here" -from his first ever live online performance

“A Groovy Little Summer Song” -also from his album named Shake What God Gave Ya!

“Soldiers & Jesus” -also from his album named Shake What God Gave Ya!

"Till That Sun Comes Around Again" -also from his album named Shake What God Gave Ya! (This performance is in front of a crowd that I was a part of in late January of last year. I was standing just a little bit to his left.)

“I Got Your Back” -This is a song that James wrote not too long ago.

God bless you and James always!!!

Holly

P.S. James has also become known for his songwriting by scoring the 2009 CMA and ACM Song of the Year awards for his being a co-writer of "In Color" from Jamey Johnson and is also a co-writer of the Zac Brown Band song named "No Hurry" which went to #2 earlier this year.

^^^ I know that James does know how to box. Would that be enough to take on Chuck? I don't know.

God bless you and them always!!!

P.S. James is six feet and five inches tall. How tall is Chuck?

If James Otto were to punch you in the face, you would have to fight off the strong urge to thank him.

^^^ First there has to be a reason for him to even do such a thing and so far I have yet to give him one, not that its ever been my intention to. James would have to get down on his knees most likely in order to even do such a thing though because of me being 11 inches shorter than him.

What I shared are lyrics to a song that is done by another of my favorite male singers, Hal Ketchum that is, from his Past The Point Of Rescue album named "Old Soldiers".

God bless you two and him and James always!!!

If you were to punch him in the face, you needn't aim your blow. That guy's got a face like someone stuffed a watermelon into catcher's mitt. I'll pass on the generic hyper-twangy pop, thanks.

This is not the correct forum for me to question your judgement in this matter, so I won't. It's just that a lot of guys might think that river has already been crossed by the horse that went through the barn's open door.

All the 'Yes' album covers are Otto family photos. If you drop a phonograph needle on his nipple, it plays The Beach Boys', "Pet Sounds."

There's no need to be so unkind! Also, I believe murder is specifically disallowed in the rules.

This one time, James Otto burned a CD with nothing but the sounds of his bowel movements and the screams of his man-servants. It went triple platinum within the month*.

*I hadn't realized how much I missed those Brasky sketches.

I never thought the Counting Crows had any edge too them at all, but having watched a couple of those videos, I now know what the Counting Crows would sound like with their edge blunted. He's OK, I guess, but he sounds exactly like a million other generic 90s influenced singer-songwriters.

Pro-tip to the OP. If you are trying to get people to listen to (watch, read, whatever) your favorite artist, don't oversell them. It turns people off, and no artist, no matter how great, can live up to the gushing hype of their more enthusiastic fans.

Thank you for the good advice! I try not to. I just love James so much that I can't help but want to share everything that I find of him. I know that not everyone will go for him and if they don't, that is okay because we are all different, but first people have to know of something before they will know if they are missing out on anything good or not.

God bless you and James always!!!
