First Four!

Got to meet James Otto back in October of 2009 at the Texas Longhorn in Vinton.  After telling him I named my manuscript after his song, he authographed it and wished me luck.  Such a nice guy...and what a hunk! He's got the greatest voice for mixing country and soul. Last First Kiss, which he co-wrote with his lovely wife, Amy, is available on his Deluxe Edition of Sunset Man...great CD so go out and buy or download it if you haven't already.

My gorgeous daughter Jessica, cozying up to James Otto. (she wishes!)
Sarah, Trish & Jessica cozying up to James Otto for real.  He looks pretty happy, doesn't he?
Me and my soul sister, Arlene!
Arlene, Michelle, and me during the James Otto show. Good friends...Good times...Great memories.
