Backstreet Boys going a little bit country
(CNN) — They long ago conquered pop music and now the Backstreet Boys may have their sights set on conquering country.
The all grown up boy band is apparently been cooking something up in the studio with country duo Florida Georgia Line.
On Monday Backstreet member Nick Carter posted an Instagram photo of himself in studio with the caption “In the studio with my @backstreetboys recording a song for @flagaline new album. Also working on the new backstreet album as well. Get ready!!!”
Likewise his fellow band member Brian Littrell posted a picture of recording equipment and said “In the Lab…… Doing something we’ve never done before…. BSB feature with FGL….. Great record…. Comes out late August…..”
Florida Georgia Line is well known for their unique collaborations including their hit single “Cruise” with rapper Nelly.
And there is history where working with the Backstreet Boys is concerned.
Rolling Stone Country reports that Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley recently told the audience at a concert in South Dakota that “Backstreet Boys was my first concert.”
Florida Georgia Line’s new album is due in August. The Backstreet Boys are also working on a new album and there are plans for a short residency for the group in Las Vegas.
