Singer Kevin Richardson has announced that he will return to the Backstreet Boys this winter after a lengthy hiatus from the group. Richardson, who left the band in 2006, will reunite with the rest of the Backstreet Boys at a special concert in the Bahamas as part of their second annual SS Backstreet cruise.

In an interview with Ryan Seacrest yesterday, Richardson suggested that he may stick around for more shows in the future. "I would never say that it would never happen," says Richardson. "I would love to perform with them again on a more regular basis. Our chemistry when we come together just feels like old times."

Though Richardson's involvement in future Backstreet Boys tours remains up in the air, the other four members of the group are slated to perform on a European leg of their NKOTBSB tour with New Kids on the Block in the spring.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
