No. 52: James Otto, ‘Just Got Started Lovin’ You’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs
Okay, forget the hearts and roses for a minute — this next song is really an unambiguous plea for more sex. James Otto represents the more carnal end of the country love song spectrum with ‘Just Got Started Lovin’ You,’ which comes in at No. 52 on our Top 100 Country Love Songs list.
The rockin’ track from Otto’s second album was a No. 1 hit in May of 2008. Produced by John Rich of Big and Rich and Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts, the song is a perfect vehicle for Otto’s rough-and-ready vocals.
