When I was seven years old, my first celebrity crush took the form of Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys.

I treasured my cassette tape of their debut album, carefully rewinding it to listen to his solo in All I Have to Give over and over again; I full-out ugly cried when I got a huge wall poster for Christmas because that glorious golden mushroom cut would be next to my bed forever.\

More than 20 years later, Carter, 36, still stirs up those nostalgic feelings; as his familiar voice rings through on the other end of a phone call, my childhood self has a small aneurysm.

Whether you like his music or not, one thing to admire about Carter is his extreme self-awareness; he knows that his fans are people like me, who cling to the vision of him as a fresh-faced teen in oversized clothes and who just want to hear him serenade us with As Long As You Love Me. So, despite the fact Carter will be playing the Burton Cummings Theatre tonight as a solo act, touring in support of his newest record, All American, he says there will absolutely be Backstreet Boys songs thrown in the mix.

“I give the fans what they want; they want Backstreet Boys songs,” he chuckles.

His self-awareness kicks in again as he speaks about All American — it’s a fun pop-rock record that has a fair amount of cheese and humour, but Carter says that was more or less the point.

Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys and reality TV fame is bringing his All American tour to Canada.

The boy-band pioneer is promoting his latest solo album by the same name.

We got the busy BSB to answer a few questions about music, life and becoming a better dancer.

Q: Who is the audience for your solo work?

A: I make music for everyone — my latest album All American is a fun album that I think everyone can enjoy. There’s a little bit of everything — rock, pop, ballads and a few upbeat jams.

Q: What is most rewarding about the solo career?

A: I get to play guitar a lot more during my live show. That’s something I love to do. My solo music has a lot more rock influence than BSB stuff. I’m a rocker at heart.

Q: Is songwriting a major part of your life?

A: Definitely. I love writing. It’s therapeutic.

Backstreet’s back, all right. Nick Carter, the larger than life international pop-star who has played sold-out arenas around the world, will be bringing his solo material, and a few Backstreet Boys favourites, to a more intimate setting for fans in Thunder Bay.

Carter, who rose to fame with the chart-topping boy band, Backstreet Boys, is touring Canada in support of his latest solo album, All American. Carter will be bringing what he calls a much more intimate experience to Crocks on Nov. 14.

“I have more freedom as a solo artist and I like to do that because I can go to places that we wouldn’t necessarily go,” Carter said in an interview with the Thunder Bay Source. “They hide a lot of those fans that we have in those places. Canada is one of those places that I personally love because it has always been a place that has shown so much love to the Backstreet Boys. As an artist, I love being able to have that freedom.”

All American is Carter’s third solo effort and it offers an eclectic mix of musical genres, from pop, to rock, to country.

“As a vocalist, I can sing on anything, R&B, rock, country,” Carter said. “But I just like to have music, as an individual, that is almost broken down into the four or three elements, just the bass, drum, and guitar.”

Carter said that offering up smaller shows with 500 to 1000 people provides him with an opportunity to reflect on his musical beginnings.

“It’s just so much fun,” he said. “In a lot of ways, it’s like the old fashioned rock band approach that I take. It humbles me in a lot of ways and reminds me of what it was like in the beginning.”

Nick Carter, member of the international sensation Backstreet Boys, brings his solo “All American” tour to Canada this November with a stop in Medicine Hat at the Esplanade Nov. 20 for an 8 p.m. show. Carter said the tour will have him performing in places he’s never played before.

“We’re really excited to get out there and perform for fans that haven’t really had the ability to see us because it’s a different market and we’re really excited about that,” noted Carter.

Carter’s latest solo effort “All American” follows the release of “I’m Taking Off” and his debut solo album “Now or Never.” Carter also released a collaborative album with Jordan Knight from New Kids on the Block. Carter has also been in the studio working on the Backstreet Boys’ ninth album and is gearing up for a Backstreet Boys Las Vegas residency in 2017.

Canada was one of the reasons Backstreet Boys broke in the United States in the first place, according to Carter.

“Canadian fans are very loyal and gave us our shot and opportunity. Canada, still to this day, doesn’t have any boundaries when it comes to being Backstreet Boys fans. They have loved us consistently throughout the years and never wavered,” he said.

The great thing about the current tour, Carter noted, is the show is two hours of non-stop music and energy.

Getting up on the stage is Nick Carter’s favourite part of his job. The rush, the loving fans, the expressive artistic platform, all of it.

Which is why Carter was more than excited to kick off his ‘All American’ tour in North Bay.

“I love this, this is what I live for,” the 36-year-old Backstreet Boy said, gesturing inside the theatre of the Capitol Centre. “Most entertainers who truly love to perform, love this kind of environment because it’s so intimate.”

Carter, whose fame and popularity stems from ‘90s boy-band, the Backstreet Boys said he’s had the opportunity in his career with his fellow ‘Boys’ to perform in massive stadiums and arenas, but a tour like this allowed him to really connect with fans.

“There are always these super fans in the back and they only see you really small,” he said. “This gives me the opportunity to get really close to our fans and even go in places we didn’t go.”

Carter said he hadn’t been this far north before, but was enjoying North Bay so far, and spoke to the quality of Canadian fans over the years.

“The loyalty up here is something unlike any other place,” he said. “Without Canadian fans we never would have broken in America, so I think we owe a lot to them. We were trying to break into the US and the radio stations weren’t playing us, but they were playing us in Canada. It just shows a difference between the kinds of people that Canadians are. They don’t allow things to sway what they believe in and what they love.”
