Backstreet Boys’ AJ McLean feels inspired by country music after working on a few projects with Florida Georgia Line.
AJ told Entertainment Tonight:
“Doing that song with [FGL], ‘God, Your Mama, and Me,’ and then doing Crossroads, the Smooth Tour, just kind of being submerged in the whole Nashville scene, was so inspiring to me. And out of all genres, country is probably now one of my favorites. It’s all about telling a story; every song is so relatable to anyone, but my goal is a little different. I want to come in and I want to disrupt country. I want to shift. I want to shake things up just like FGL did. So you guys are in for a treat.”
He’s been working with more country artists in Nashville lately. The pop star wants to keep fans on their toes on what to expect. AJ continued:
“I’ve been doing some writing, as well as working with some very talented writers back in Nashville. So we’ll see what comes of it.”
