James OttoJames Otto hitches his musical wagon to Toby Keith's American Ride tour for 16 dates across the U.S. this summer

"Toby has always been an artist I look up to and respect in our industry," says James. "From being a great entertainer, to songwriter to businessman, he has done it all with his own style and with big time success. I am truly honored he would ask me to join him on his summer tour."

Trace Adkins is also a special guest on the trek, kicking off June 19 in Holmdel, N.J. and continuing until Sept. 25 in Boston, Mass.

James, who will become a first-time dad later this year, appears April 23 in Biloxi, Miss., with other concert dates leading up to the American Ride tour.
