No Hurry

Album: You Get What You Give (2010)
Charted: 50
  • Zac Brown penned this song with his frequent songwriting partner Wyatt Durrette and Country singer-songwriter James Otto, who is best known for his own solo chart-topping tune, "Just Got Started Lovin' You." Otto also co-wrote Jamey Johnson's hit, "In Color."
  • The ballad was released as the fifth single from Zac Brown Band's second album, You Get What You Give. "When I got the call, my wife and I stopped what we were doing and started dancing around the kitchen of our house, we were so excited," said Otto. "There's nothing like the feeling of knowing one of the most successful bands in country music right now is going to release your song. I'm simply blown away, and utterly humbled."
  • The song's message that life is too short not to make time for the people and experiences that matter most continues to resonate with Otto who became a father for the first time in 2011. He explained how the arrival in this world of his daughter Ava Katherine has enabled him to live out the song, "When she came along, I realized it was time to slow down and focus on what really mattered to me in this life," he said, "and that was being there for those unrepeatable moments of her first steps, words and discoveries... and I'm still in 'no hurry' to let those little moments go."
