James Otto Biography

James Otto Biography

 In 2002, Otto met Scott Parker of Mercury Nashville Records, who signed him to a record deal that year. His first single, "The Ball", peaked at #45 on the Billboard country charts; a second single, "Long Way Down", failed to chart at all. Due to the poor chart performance of these singles, Otto's debut album was delayed. "Days of Our Lives", his third release for the label, was released in late 2003, peaking at #33 on the country charts. Shortly after the song peaked, his debut album (also entitled Days of Our Lives) was released on Mercury, and in 2004, Otto was signed as an opening act for Shania Twain on her Up! Tour. His fourth single for Mercury, "Sunday Morning and Saturday Night", peaked at #58; after the song fell from the charts, Otto exited Mercury's roster. By 2007, Otto signed to Warner Bros. Records Nashville. His first single for the label, "Just Got Started Lovin' You", was released at the end of that year, as the lead-off single to his second album (2008's Sunset Man). "Just Got Started Lovin' You" reached Number One on the Hot Country Songs charts in May of 2008, becoming the highest-charting single of his career. His second single from the album, "For You", is set for release to country radio on June 9, 2008.

 In 2008, Otto was commissioned to perform a new theme song for the Atlanta Braves, entitled "The Braves Play Here," composed by Greg Barnhill and Randy Wachtler for 615 Music
