His older siblings are Polly Anna, an aspiring singer herself, and Caroline Dorough-Cochran Coming Soon Music, who sadly died of lupus at age 38 in 1998.

Fought in 1992 at the age of 19 years, as Howie, finding work as an actor, he kept running into two younger men on the audition circuit. These young men were Alexander James “A.J.” Mclean, and Nickolas Gene “Nick” Carter. The three young men came up with the idea to unite and form a singing group, but decided that they needed at least one other member. It was through auditions that the boys Kevin Scott Richardson, who was working in Orlando at the time was that would become the oldest member of the Backstreet Boys found. Kevin made the suggestion of adding his cousin Brian Littrell to the group, even when Brian was a phenomenal singer, or in Kevin’s words, “he could sing his butt out.” And in 1993 the group was born known as the Backstreet Boys.
