Being a Backstreet Boy pays off, apparently. Let’s take a look back at Nick’s over twenty-year career in music.
Carter was born in Jamestown, NY on January 28, 1980. He began his acting and singing career at a young age when his mother enrolled him in voice lessons and dance lessons in ballet and tap at Karl and DiMarco’s School of Theatre and Dance when he was 10. Two years later, he auditioned for Disney’s The Mickey Mouse Club and the Backstreet Boys. He received offers from both groups and ultimately decided to join the Backstreet Boys. The Mickey Mouse Club was canceled just a couple years later.
At only 13 years old, Carter, AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, and Kevin Richardson formed the pop group Backstreet Boys in April 1993. Nick is the youngest member. The group has recorded several albums, beginning in the mid-1990s, the latest being 2013’s In a World Like This. In March 2016, the group announced that they will begin an exclusive headlining residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas called Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life.
In 2002, when the Backstreet Boys expressed a strong desire to leave their management company, The Firm, Carter chose to remain with them to manage his solo career. As the group began recording their new album without him, he started working on his first solo album. Now Or Never was released on October 29, 2002, and it reached No. 17 on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified gold, both in the United States and Canada. Carter’s second album, I’m Taking Off, was released in February 2011. It received moderate success, especially in Japan where it reached no. 8 on the charts.
Carter’s third solo album, All American, was released on November 25, 2015. In support of the album, Carter toured in February and March 2016. In May 2018, The Backstreet Boys released their new single, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” marking their first song debut since “Show ‘Em (What You’re Made Of)” off their 2013 album, In a World Like This.
