Twenty years ago, The Backstreet Boys were unleashed on an unsuspecting American public and the “boy band” phenomenon was officially under way. Inspired partly by the great doo-wop groups of the ’50s and partly by the R&B of the ’90s, Nick Carter and the rest of the boys were quickly scooped into international stardom.
From a tour stop in Cincinnati, Nick Carter was kind enough to talk with DC9 about the Backstreet Boys’ road to continued success and why they didn’t change their name to Backstreet Men.
It’s hard to believe that the Backstreet Boys have been around two decades.
In some ways, that time has gone by fast, but in other ways, it feels like we are a brand new artist. It’s very exciting, all the things that are happening. I mean, what more could you ask for? We have a top five album in America, all around the world. We have a sold out tour. It has brought new life into the project. There are just so many great things that are happening that it makes it feel like a brand new day.
