Posted in News on June 15, 2008

The CMA Festival provided a fitting celebratory atmosphere for all things James Otto Thursday, June 5 in downtown Nashville. Held at Limelight and co-sponsored by BMI, a party touting the breakout success of the soulful rising star also saluted his first no. 1 single, “Just Got Started Lovin’ You.” Co-written by Otto, D. Vincent Williams and Jim Femino and co-produced by Otto and John Rich, the tune flew up the charts, officially announcing the arrival of a potent new singer/songwriter.
