Backstreet might not be back, but Nick Carter is… alright!
The Backstreet Boy is downright killing it on this season of Dancing With The Stars, and it looks like he already has plans ready for once he steps off the dance floor!
That's because the 35-year-old is set to release his newest solo album, All American, just in time for the holidays — but it gets even better!

Not only will fans be able to purchase the record starting November 25… they'll also get the chance to snag tickets to Nick's 2016 tour!
Nick addressed his return to music in a recent blog post, saying
Nick Carter has been super open about his past struggle with addiction.
He discussed his battle with drugs in his 2013 tell-all memoir Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It, and talked to us EXCLUSIVELY about how he made the decision to speak publicly about something so personal.

On Monday, he told People that revealing the details of his own journey has actually been therapeutic, saying:
"I have been comfortable and happy to tell my story because I hope it can make a difference in somebody else's life and inspire them to realize that they are not alone. They can overcome any trouble in their life. It's been cathartic for me."
During the evening's episode of Dancing with the Stars, we saw the 35-year-old talk about his addiction.
He even explained that when his sister Leslie tragically passed away from a drug overdose, that was the devastating moment when he knew he needed to change his ways.
After watching his own package, the Backstreet Boys member tripped up a little bit during his routine, and ended up with the worst combined score out of the show's final four pairs.
He confessed that sometimes it's difficult to relive those tough times:
Alexa PenaVega's shot at the Mirrorball Trophy might not be over just yet!
The couples on this season's Dancing With The Stars are in flux after Tamar Braxton announced she was dropping out of the competition due to blood clots in her lungs.
The Real cohost's untimely exit from season 21 only leaves Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess, Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough, Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson, and Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold in the running for the final 5.

With the reality competition having more weeks on the air than eligible couples on the dance floor, ABC producers are reportedly talking about bringing back PenaVega — who was eliminated on Monday's show!
An inside source close to the production told PEOPLE:
