Baylee Littrell is following in his dad Brian Littrell’s footsteps.
The 16-year-old grew up wanting to be in the Backstreet Boys just like his father; now he’s getting the chance to tour with them.
Littrell confirmed that he’d be supporting the group on the North American leg of their “DNA” world tour in an interview with People.
The country singer explained, “Since I was six years old, my dream has always been to go on tour. I wanted to do what my dad did.
“One of their shows — I think it was the tour after their album This Is Us from 2009 — they went out on the road and I remember right before they went on, I put on one of my dad’s jackets from one of his outfits in his dressing room and I stood in front of the mirror. He comes in and is like, ‘Hey Bubs, what are you doing?’ and I’m like, ‘Well, I want to be like you.’ I asked, ‘Can I get up there instead one day?’
“He was like, ‘Well, you never know.’ And now the opportunity to open for him and the guys is like that six-year-old self standing in front of that mirror in his dressing room with his jacket on. It’s a dream come true.”
Littrell’s comments come after he released his new single “Don’t Knock It” in November. Watch the video for the track below.
