5 Songs That You Might Not Know James Otto Had A Hand In [VIDEOS]

James Otto is coming to Perham Hall at The Old Warehouse this Sunday night in the heart of Zillah.

Otto is a CMA and ACM award-winning, two-time Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and has his own hits. But what about songs that you might not know that James had a hand in?



Holdin’ Her



Chris Janson’s big song was “Buy Me A Boat,” but his follow-up was called “Holdin’ Her.” James Otto co-wrote the song with Janson.



Chicken And Biscuits



Colt Ford scored some radio play with “Chicken And Biscuits,” but if you listen carefully, you can hear the sweet tones of James on the vocals.



In Color



Jamey Johnson’s masterpiece “In Color” was co-written with James Otto. The song is actually about James’ grandfather, who was from Washington state.



No Hurry



Zac Brown Band’s “No Hurry” is co-written with James Otto. It’s a song all about forgetting your daily problems and enjoying life. It hit the No. 2 spot on the charts in 2012.



Purple Rain



Prince and James Otto seems like a stretch, but once you hear James Otto sing “Purple Rain,” you’ll get goosebumps. James performed the song on Big D and Bubba right after Prince passed, and his rendition blew folks away — so much so that Rolling Stone magazine picked up the video and featured it on their website.
