Backstreet has been around a long time. Normally, groups like us have a shelf life of two to four years. We always wanted to have a long stay in the music world.

I keep everything that is most important to me close to me: my family, my bible, my X-Box – just kidding.
I know who I am as a person, as a father, and as a husband.
I live in Atlanta, Georgia, and none of the other Backstreet Boys live in Georgia. So a lot of times, when people come to my house they’re like, ‘Hey, is A.J. here?’ Or, ‘Is Kevin here?’ Or, ‘Is Nick in the bathroom?’ People think we live together and we spend all the time in the world together, but we really don’t.

I think it would be cool to maybe do something with Ed Sheeran. That would be awesome and interesting. He writes amazing songs, and I could easily hear Backstreet Boys sing ‘Shape Of You.’
I was born with a heart murmur. When I was 21, the stress of the career and traveling – the lack of sleep and just not eating right – had taken its toll.

I was the first BSB dad. I was the first one to join the club.

It’s kinda like being a body builder and you have muscles that are so large that they don’t allow you to have flexibility, if that makes sense.
I’ve known for a very long time that making music for the church has been my calling.
I’ve received a lot of positive feedback from both the secular and Christian markets. People seem to be receiving it with open arms and hearts, and are interested in the stories I want to share about my relationship with God and my faith.
If I did not have my wife, I wouldn’t be married, I wouldn’t have the life that I have and I wouldn’t have my wonderful baby boy who’s not a baby anymore – he’s going to be eight-years-old.
Marriage can be work, it can be difficult, it can be hard, but I think working through those times makes you stronger as a couple and as a unit.
Some of the best advice I got from a close friend is marriage is always looked at from the world as 50/50 as to working together to make that 100 percent.
This is America! We’re the greatest nation on the planet, so just love each other, man.
