A writer for Tennessean.com spotted Backstreet Boys star Brian Littrell at The Palm on September 4th. Brian was there having lunch with Terry Hemmings, President and CEO of Provident Music Group. Apparently Brian is looking to put his solo album out on a Christian label and not on Jive Records, the label his group has had trouble with. Jordan Kellar, Brian’s lawyer, said, “He grew up singing in churches, at weddings and funerals. This is where his true musical love is. Brian always has expressed a spirituality in Backstreet Boys’ album liner notes and through other venues, so this will be no surprise to many fans.” Provident Music Group houses artists like Michael W. Smith, Jars of Clay, Third Day, and Joy Williams. A few months ago, MTV News reported that some of the artists appearing on Brian’s Gospel album were R&B singer Monica and Provident’s own Michael W. Smith.
