The Backstreet Boys
In 1992, when Carter was 12 years old, he auditioned for both Disney’s Mickey Mouse club and the Backstreet Boys. His mother’s preference was for him to land the television role, as it would allow him to remain in school. However, Carter was bullied at school and his first choice was to join the vocal group and drop out of school. He was offered both jobs and decided to join the ‘Backstreet Boys’. The other members of the ‘Backstreet Boys’ were AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson and Howie Dorough.
