Aside from being out on the road this fall making special  appearances on Reba’s “All The Women I Am” tour, country soul powerhouse James Otto is spending a lot of time at home with his daughter Ava who celebrated her first birthday in August.  Although he’s known for his larger-than-life stature and tough-man military attitude, Otto has a soft spot in his heart when it comes to his little girl.  Shamelessly, for Halloween on Monday, he dressed up as the farmer in Ava’s favorite nursery rhyme “Mary Had A Little Lamb,” and took Ava on a “hayride” around their neighborhood trick-or-treating in Nashville.
