Nick Carter's definitely keeping himself busy in 2013.

Not only is he heading out on tour with the Backstreet Boys to celebrate their 20th anniversary and releasing a new album, but he will also have a book coming out later this year.

Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It is part autobiography, part self-help book and will include stories about his teenage years in BSB, his struggle with substance and alcohol abuse, and the hardships of his family.

His younger siblings, Aaron and Leslie, both have had a history with substance abuse, with Leslie passing away last year from it.
