Backstreet's back alright!

While The Backstreet Boys just started their residency in Las Vegas, it looks like they all have their own side projects that they're working on. That includes AJ McLean coming out with his own solo album.. that includes country music! I'm sorry.. but WHAT?!

AJ announced yesterday that his single off of his first solo album Long Road will be the song "Boy and a Man" and it will be released to country radio stations this week.

Interesting. You can give it a chance right now.

  

AJ said in a recent interview, "I've been a fan of all types of music since I was a kid. My mom raised me on southern rock, country, anything from Three Dog Night, CCR, to Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks. I'm an overall fan of just music. But for me, one of the biggest things and biggest draws to go country is, country music tells stories. And I love the fact that country music, doesn't matter if it's a female artist, a group, a male artist, every song is so relatable to everyone. And, again, it tells stories. And, I wanted to tell my story."

You be the judge.. Does he do better with Pop Music or Country Music?
