Nick Carter took a detour from his pop roots to wander the world of country music in his new song »Easy” which includes jimmy allen.

Talk to People about his new collaboration, the Thug said he wanted to do a country crossover because that kind of music has always been in his “blood”.

“I listened to all kinds of music growing up. When I started doing singing competitions in Florida, there were a lot of country songs that I not only listened to but performed,” he explained. “I grew up with country music – it’s always been in my blood, but I love music in general.”

Nick added, “Even the Backstreet Boys, we did a lot of crossover songs that kind of had that country feel. We did a song called ‘Drowning’, which had a bit of a country edge to it. He also referenced BSB’s “God, Your Mama and Me” collaboration with Florida Georgia line.

Nick said he was heartened when he saw “there was a lot of love and connection from this community”.

As for why Nick wanted to pursue a solo country song, he admitted ‘Easy’ had been brewing in his mind for some time – and he felt Jimmie was the perfect person to get him across the finish line.

“I said, ‘Hey, I have this song ‘Easy’ and so we FaceTimed with Jimmie and he was like, ‘Man, I’m a huge fan of yours!’ and I said “Me too,” he recalled. “So we basically shared the love for each other and the rest was history!”

Nick teased what’s next for him, which he says is an upcoming solo album packed with “a lot of great material that I’m looking forward to.”
