The first new song released by James Otto since his 2010 Shake What God Gave Ya album, the singer-songwriter penned the tune with Corey Crowder, Patrick Davis, JT Hodges and James Slater. "With all the things that happen in life, sometimes you just need to break out, and that's exactly what this song is about," Otto explained. "It's saying, 'I just want to go somewhere tonight. I wanna forget about all the stress and pressure at work and the busy schedules. I just want to get out and have some fun.'"
"St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)" was not written for the movie, but for Rick Hanson, a wheelchair athlete whose 1985 "Man In Motion" tour logged 24,856 miles on his wheelchair in 34 countries while raising $26 million for spinal cord research.
