Q&A: Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys
From where Backstreet Boys ' Nick Carter is standing, things are looking pretty good. Concerts on
the act's tour -- as well as copies of its greatest-hits collection,
"Playlist: The Very Best of Backstreet Boys" -- are selling briskly.
Now if he could only persuade radio to play songs from Backstreet Boys'
latest album, "This Is Us," everything would be perfect.
"It's sad that people aren't getting the chance to hear it much," Carter said. "But that's cool. All we have to do is go on tour and
promote it that way."
Backstreet Boys, who recently joined Korn in boycotting BP oil, are on tour through July in support of the album. During a tour stop in
Boston, Carter took the time to talk to SoundSpike about the
performances, the upcoming Backstreet Boys cruise and his tour bus.
SoundSpike: How's the tour going so far?
Nick Carter: The tour is going fantastic. We're having a lot of fun. From what we're seeing from the stage, it's kind of sold out. [Laughs]
We're kind of excited. Everybody's excited. I'm on a bus right now --
and isn't Kid Rock from Detroit? I have Kid Rock's bus. There's a big D
everywhere on my bus for Detroit. [Laughs]
LOL if it could only talk lol Nick might learn a few things
