Singer, songwriter, actor, and philanthropist Nick Carter sparked his career at the tender age of 12 as the youngest member of the iconic boy band Backstreet Boys. Since taking the world by storm in 1995, the band has sold over 130 million records worldwide and has earned five Grammy nominations, countless awards, and an honorary star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame. As a standout member of the Backstreet Boys, Carter was named one of People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People in the World."
In 2002, Nick released his debut solo album Now or Never and released his second solo album, I’m Taking Off, in 2012. Carter recorded and released a collaborative album with Jordan Knight from News Kids On The Block called Nick & Knight in 2014.
As an actor, Carter starred in his first horror film, The Hollow, along with number of other film roles, sharing the screen with the likes of Tom Arnold, and has made cameos on television series like the CW Network’s reprised 90210. In 2014, Nick and longtime girlfriend Lauren Kitt made their TV debut as a couple in the VH1 reality series, I Heart Nick Carter.
At the 2015 San Diego Comic Con, Carter announced that he is partnering with the production company The Asylum to co-write, direct and star in a zombie Western movie titled Dead 7. The made-for-TV film is set to also star famous boyband members from O-Town, 98 Degrees, and some of Carter's bandmates from the Backstreet Boys. Production is currently in motion in Montana.
Nick is partnered with Pro Sharna Burgess.
