Backstreet Boys member AJ McLean drops his new country record "Back Porch Bottle Service." The song is part of the singer's first solo venture since 2010's Have It All.
The singer was inspired to release a country track after he had collaborated with Florida Georgia Line on the song "God, Your Mama and Me."
"Back Porch Bottle Service" features McLean's signature gravelly sound that proves he is not just meant to sing pop songs. The fun tune is also the perfect summer anthem because it features an upbeat sound.

Howie Dorough Talks About 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart'
Howie Dorough recently revealed that the track was the third song pitched to them by Stuart Crichton, a Scottish producer, who is based in Los Angeles. Crichton made them listen to the first song "Wait," but the track ultimately went to Adam Levine and Maroon 5.
"One, believe it or not, is the recent single from Maroon 5. At the same time that was presented to us, we were told that Adam [Levine] had heard it and there was possible chance that he might want it for [their] single. That's just kind of how the nature of the game goes - but we don't get too caught up about it. We just move on knowing that there's always gonna be great songs coming around the corner," said Dorough.
