Backstreet Boys may have flirted with Country during their collaboration with Florida Georgia Line on God, Your Mama and Me last year but now AJ McLean has released his debut Country single Back Porch Bottle Service.
Speaking to Billboard McLean said, “Back Porch Bottle Service is all about making time with the one you love,” McLean explains to Billboard. “Forget the club, let’s just the make the night about you and me. Let me be your DJ, let me be your bartender, let me be your man.”
The single comes hot-on-the-heels of Backstreet Boys releasing new track Don’t Go Breaking My Heart. McLean has been in Nashville working with acclaimed songwriters like Clint Lagerberg (Keith Urban/Blake Shelton/Rascal Flatts) and Brett Tyler (Maren Morris/Chris Young/Joe Nichols).
The new track is likely to catch fans off-guard but McLean has been immersing himself in the Country genre, which he feels allows him to tell his own story.
As part of Backstreet Boys, McLean has sold more than 140 million records. The band have their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
McLean released his debut solo album Have It All in 2010 and the follow-up is expected later this year.
