Backstreet Boys Expected To Drop Country-Influenced Album In 2018

Backstreet's back--yee haw! The '90s boy band tells Rolling Stone that they've been working on a new album in Nashville that's scheduled to arrive next year with a new country sound. 

"When news came out we were collaborating with Florida Georgia Line, my Twitter feed and Facebook feed was all fans commenting, 'Oh my God, my two favorite groups are collaborating,'" says Kevin Richardson. 

"We cut some Nashville songs recently and just yesterday I was in the vocal booth. So we're in the lab playing around, experimenting." 

They add that Chris Stapleton, Sam Hunt and Vince Gill have been their most profound country influences so far.
