Garnd Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - Country music star and former North Dakotan, James Otto, performed at the Great Grand Forks Fair Saturday night.


The country musician and songwriter has had success throughout his career.

His single "Just Got Started Loving You" was a number one hit and Otto has written songs for a variety of singers including the Zac Brown Band and Jamey Johnson.

Otto's performance was a bit of a homecoming for him, he spent almost 10 years living in North Dakota.

James Otto/Country Musician: “You know it's good to be back here and see family. I showed up a day early and I'm staying two days later so that I can see all of my friends, my family here, my grandfather and go back to the old farm. It's always awesome to be back.”

Otto says that he just got out of the studio and that he expects to have a new song on the radio by September.
