What’s Shakin’? James Otto’s Next Album
Posted By Tom Roland On July 28, 2010 @ 2:18 PM In Country Music News | Comments Disabled
James Otto  is sounding very happy-go-lucky of late, what with “Groovy Little Summer Song” putting a sunny disposition and a bit of blue-eyed soul into the beach-weather playlist.
The song is just one of a dozen tracks set for James’ next album, which is slated for release at the tail end of summer, Sept. 14. The project is titled Shake What God Gave Ya!, and it’s apparently loaded up with the same sort of R&B influences that shade “Groovy Little Summer Song” and his signature hit, “Just Got Started Lovin’ You.”
“Musically,” James notes, “I’d say I’m the love child between Ronnie Milsap  and Barry White.”
That’s a piece of musical turf that puts James in pretty good company these days. Other current male country singers with soul elements in their voices include Billy Currington , Jimmy Wayne , Danny Gokey , Jerrod Niemann  and Lady Antebellum ’s Charles Kelley.
“Charles has a really soulful voice, man. He’s a great singer,” James says. “I’m happy to be compared with those guys.”
Lady A producer Paul Worley oversaw the sessions for Shake What God Gave Ya!, which includes an appearance by Ronnie Milsap on the album closer, “Good Things Gone Bad.”
