Staying Home + Giving Back: What Nick Carter Is Doing This Summer
It's been a few months since Nick has been home after the Backstreet Boys postponed their final show in Brazil due to rising concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, the group has announced the postponement of their Australian, New Zealand and North American legs of the DNA tour. 

While obviously disappointed to not be visiting fans around the world this year, Nick has definitely been enjoying unexpected time off at home with his family (just look at his instagram). Being in one place, though, has been an adjustment.

“Quarantine’s really interesting from a touring artist perspective. I love performing and entertaining people. We’ve been touring for years, anywhere from 150-200 days-per-year, so I’m used to being go-go-go and have had to learn a new way of life," Nick told Entertainment Tonight in a recent interview. “It’s definitely different and I’m doing some therapy with my therapist over Zoom because my body is set in adrenaline mode since we’re always going places,” Carter continues. “I’m having to readjust psychologically – tone myself down and normalize myself. I’m not complaining because I’m very happy to be home and in a routine with my family, but there’s definitely some getting used to with being in one place for a long time.”

In addition to family time, Nick is doing what he can to help others during the pandemic. Recently, he worked with VOSS water to deliver thousands of bottles to frontline workers at Mount Sinai's Brooklyn Hospital, recorded a special video message in support of the Las Vegas police for Police Week, and read a story to his children on Instagram for Happy Family Organics, not only teaching young minds about regenerative farming but collaborating with the company to donate 10,000 products to Las Vegas shelter The Shade Tree and food bank Three Square. He also brought attention to and donated toward a Go Fund Me account set up for Esther Bateo so that her family can afford life saving heart surgery, encouraging others to give back during this time.
