Sunset Man

James Otto’s long-awaited second album demonstrates that he knows how to rock a party, as he does on up-tempo tracks like “Ain’t Gonna Stop” and “Drink & Dial” (both co-written and co-produced by country’s preeminent expert on party-rocking, Big & Rich’s John Rich). He can also elevate a standard-issue Music Row ballad like “For You” and ride a sweet groove like his hit “Just Got Started Lovin’ You” with panache. But Sunset Man really shines when things get serious on cuts like “Damn Right,” “The Man That I Am” and the title tune—songs with emotions as authentic and raw as James’ own strikingly soulful singing.
