It's probably no accident that Nick Carter was born in the same
Jamestown, New York hospital as the legendary
actress/comedienne, Lucille Ball. A firecracker from day one, you
could regularly find "Little Nicky" dressed in nothing but diapers,
bustin' a move, on the dance floor of his father's Yankee Rebel
lounge. By fourth grade, after his family moved to Florida, Nick
landed the lead in Phantom of the Opera. He was also a featured
vocalist at Tampa Bay Buccaneer pre-game shows for two years.
At age 12 he put in a winning performance on the 1992 New
Original Amateur Hour, and did commercials for both the Money
Store and the Florida State Lottery. Nick was offered a gig with
Disney, but decided to go with the Backstreet Boys after that
first night of harmonizing.
During off hours, you can find Nick at home with his parents and
four younger siblings. The drum set in his room gets a heavy
workout and he spends lots of time jamming with two of his buds.
Nick is a licensed scuba diver, enjoys the family motorboat and
fishing, and loves poetry and football.
