Oh how we laughed when A.J. MCLEAN of the Backstreet Boys was at the ACMs threatening to release a country album that would “shake things up.” Well, time to wipe the grin away.
The first song premiered yesterday on “Billboard“. It’s called “Back Porch Bottle Service” . . . and it could easily be a Florida Georgia Line song. Makes sense since the whole “God, Your Mama, And Me” thing is what inspired him to do this.
Here’s his sales pitch. “‘Back Porch Bottle Service’ is all about making time with the one you love. Forget the club, let’s just the make the night about you and me. Let me be your deejay, let me be your bartender, let me be your man.” (???)
He’s performing “Back Porch” plus a few of his other new country songs at a special fan event tonight in Nashville.
So I guess the album is done, or close to it. Either way, the Backstreet Boys are presenting and performing at tomorrow night’s “CMT Music Awards” . . . so there’s a good chance we’ll be hearing it then too.
