From a small town called Ottawa, IL., not far from Chicago, Carey Ott moved to Nashville, TN in 2005. He made a record with Ray Kennedy (Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle), and had some of his songs on TV (Grey's Anatomy, Kyle XY). But, mostly, he just wrote and recorded songs. Tons of good songs. "What brought me to Nashville is Songs, and that's what keeps me here is Songs. I can't stop writing and recording Songs. I've been co-writing and I've had cuts on other people's albums and I'm so proud of 'em all." East Nashville is where Carey now lives comfortably with his lovely lady Lori and his fluffy dog Lola.
