20 years after they first came together as a group, the boys of the Backstreet Boys have received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
"I worked my entire life to never be walked on, but I'm OK with this one," Brian Littrell said jokingly, according to E!.
The group's star placement on the walk comes at a busy time for Littrell, AJ Mclean, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough, and Nick Carter. With their recent 20th anniversary as well as an upcoming tour and album, things are looking good for the '90's heartthrobs.
"I will one day be able to bring my family here. My kids will be able to bring their kids here and still be able to see the legacy that the Backstreet Boys have carried on for many years," Dorough said, according to Starpulse.
While the music industry has changed since their inception, the Backstreet Boys hope that there are still fans looking to buy a whole CD, not just individual tracks. Having cultivated much of their fan base during a time when full album purchases was the only way to go, the group expects that there will be some who will hold onto that tradition.
"Hopefully we still have the fans out there who do that and have that personal connection [with us] and remember when they were 10, 13, or 18 and listen to the album from start to finish. I hope that happens with the new record," Littrell said, according to EW.
While still finishing up the untitled record, the band will be touring in China this May.
