Move over Backstreet Boys’ AJ McLean, there’s another boy band family member eyeing a spot in the country music genre.
Backstreet Boys’ Brian Littrell has revealed that his son, Baylee, is gearing up to release his debut country single. A song called “Don’t Knock It,” Baylee has been in the studio with producer Corey Crowder (Chris Young, Cassadee Pope), and has revealed a snippet of the track.
A song about a small town boy falling for a city girl who makes fun of his Southern roots, Baylee impresses alone on acoustic guitar in a minute-long preview of the song.
A proud father, Brian has been traveling back and forth with his son to Nashville for the recording sessions. He’s even shared some photos from the studio on his personal Instagram account. “Great Job Bubba !!! Super proud of you ….” he captions one post on Instagram announcing that the song is now available for pre-order on iTunes. “Don’t Knock It” is set for release on Nov. 30.
Earlier this year, AJ released his debut country single, “Back Porch Bottle Service.” In an interview with One Country, he revealed that he wants to share his story with country listeners.
“I want to come in and tell my story. I want to come in and not try to be something I’m not,” he tells One Country. “Everything has happened organically, and everything is just falling into place. I’m a huge fan of good music, and country music tells stories. I want to tell my story.”
