article imageBackstreet Boys members inducted into Kentucky Music Hall of Fame

Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell from the Backstreet Boys were inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame on April 10.
This year's induction ceremony was held at Kentucky's Lexington Center's Bluegrass Ballroom. Kevin and Brian were recognized for their contributions to music, not only in Kentucky, but around the globe.
Kevin and Brian performed bluegrass versions of their hit singles "I Want It That Way" and "Larger Than Life." Particularly impressive about their live performance is that they invited two college students, Josh Turner and Carson McKee, to sing along with them, after Richardson discovered their covers of their hit song "Larger Than Life" on YouTube, which may be seen by clicking here.
Richardson noted in a press statement that most people may not equate them with Kentucky, or Kentucky music, but he and Littrell from the Backstreet Boys are "deeply rooted in Kentucky."
"We are singers, first and foremost, and we are Kentuckians," added Richardson. "Just to grace the stage tonight with the people who have accepted these awards. I hope that we do you proud with our performance," Littrell said.
Richardson subsequently expressed his gratitude to the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame for bestowing this honor upon them, as well as for making them a part of this elite musical family.
