James Otto Food Drive To Benefit His Hometown of Benton City

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- James Otto was back in the Tri-Cities but before his concert Friday night, he was part of a charity food drive to benefit the food bank in his hometown of Benton City.

The charity motorcycle ride started at Cousin's Restaurant in Pasco. From there the riders took off to Benton City.

Otto met with some family and old friends and also signed autographs for fans. He tells us he spent most of his childhood in Benton City and graduated from Ki-Be High School.

After joining the Navy, Otto moved to Nashville to start his singing career. He's now glad to be back home.

"Feels really good to come back after all the success has happened and get a chance to play for my hometown, it feels really good," said James Otto, Country Singer.

Otto says he'll only be in the Tri-Cities for about ten hours before his next show. He comes from a big military family, which is why all veterans will be able to get into the concert for free.

It's happening Friday, May 29th at TRAC in Pasco. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are still available for $15. Both law enforcement and armed forces staff also get in for free by showing their badge.
