Backstreet Boys’ A.J. McLean stopped to chat with Billboard’s Kevan Kenney on the red carpet at the 53rd annual Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday (April 15), where he discussed his plans to “disrupt” country music.
“I am coming in, but I’m coming in to disrupt country,” McLean says of his next musical project. “I wanna come in and shake things up. I’ve always loved country…But after we did ‘God, Your Mama, And Me' with Florida Georgia Line… something just kind of clicked and I just got this overwhelming inspiration to just give it a go.”
