All American is the third solo album released by Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter. The album was released on November 25, 2015, on his own record label, Kaotic, Inc. This is his first solo album since I'm Taking Off, which was released four years earlier.
In January 2015, Carter let fans know he was working on another solo album that will be titled All American. On September 22, 2015, he released the lead single from the album called "I Will Wait" on Vevo, which he said was inspired by Ed Sheeran’s songwriting. Carter also has a track featuring Canadian singer Avril Lavigne, titled "Get Over Me". All American was released on November 25, 2015, a day after Dancing With The Stars finale, where he is one of the four finalists.
The musical style of the album combined with pop, rock, and pop punk, and features some rock music instruments such as drum and rock guitar. The song "Cherry Pie" has the throwback type feel like Mark Ronson. There are some songs have a guitar sound of punk rock music, such as "19 in 99", "Tijuana", "All American" and "Left For Dead". The songs like "Get Over Me", "California", "Second Wind", "Swet" and "In Over My Head" have a combination of Dance-pop and Teenpop feel. And "I Will Wait" is an emotional ballad song inspired by Ed Sheeran, with a clear acoustic guitar sound.
I'm very inspired by rock and pop music, and have those in me, and have done albums like that in the past, so it's going to have that. But it also has some rhythm, it has some soul for sure. I feel like I'm definitely coming into my own as an artist. But it just touches on all sorts of different styles and feels, so when you listen to the album from top to bottom, you know it's taking you on a ride. Like a musical. Like a movie, or something.
"I Will Wait" is the first single of the album, released on September 12, 2015 on iTunes, and September 22 on Vevo. The song climbed to No. 1 on the Billboard Trending 140 Chart. On September 24, Nick Carter performed the song on the finale of Dancing With The Stars.
On November 27, as Nick Carter announced on Twitter, the duet song with Avril Lavigne titled "Get Over Me" will be released as the promotional single, due to the popularity of the song and fan's request on Social Media, it was described as a "break-up anthem". The song was first premiered on Z100 New York radio.
On February 3, 2016, Nothing's Gonna Change My Love for You was released only in Japan, set as the promotional single and bonus track of All American Japanese standard edition.
