Plenty of singers outside of country try to cross over to our genre, but few are successful. Backstreet Boy AJ McLean may be a rare exception, as his new single, “Boy And A Man” is amongst the top ten most added at country radio this week alongside artists like Maren Morris, Jason Aldean, and Dierks Bentley.
The single premiered with People Country and to a positive reaction from fans and the media. The video for the single is dropping March 18th, and AJ will play the song live when he performs at the 7th Annual ACM Party for a Cause in Vegas next month.
“Boy And A Man” is a perfect intro into AJ’s upcoming LP, “Long Road” set to hit later this spring. The single is written by Rob Crosby (Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride) and Dave Fenley (NBC’s The Voice) and produced by Jason Massey (Kelsea Ballerini).
People Country said of the new song, “AJ McLean is officially making his mark in the country music world!”
