Close

Nick Carter will soon be able to credit himself as a book writer.

The singer plans to release a memoir on Sept. 24 titled Facing the Music and Living to Talk About it, according to The Associated Press. 

The memoir, which will be released under Bird Street Books, will discuss Carter's years as a member of one of the biggest boy bands of all time. It will also focus on his problems with substance and alcohol abuse, an issue discussed in 2011 when Carter made an appearance on Dr. Phil to talk about it. 

"I was angry. I was so mad at myself. I said, 'This is not me,' " he told Dr. Phil regarding his Florida arrest for driving while intoxicated in 2005.

The memoir will also touch on a traumatic family moment. His sister, Leslie Carter, died from an overdose last year. She was only 25. 

The 33-year-old, who is engaged to Lauren Kitt, has another career move to celebrate. He will also be heading on tour this summer with his old bandmates - AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, and Kevin Richardson - to celebrate the band's 20th anniversary.

Backstreet Boys formed in 2003 and went on to sell millions of albums. The group also topped the Billboard charts twice. The first time the band went No. 1 was for their album Millennium in 1999 and then a year later with Black & Blue, according to Billboard

Former Jersey Shore star DJ Pauly D and singer Jesse McCartney will also be joining the boys on tour. View tour dates and buy tickets here.

"That's right baby!" Carter told Ryan Seacrest in a May interview. "All five of us are back together."
