Attempt #2 to follow up “Just Got Started Lovin’ You” finds Otto eschewing nostalgia to a groovy beat that sounds like something John Mayer might do at his sunniest and most simplified. There’s nothing really “country” here, and the fairly unique theme isn’t quite done justice by the song’s predictable lyrics. But it’s a reasonably enjoyable number anyway, and Otto remains a talent to watch.
