FRANKLIN, Tenn., June 23 (UPI) -- Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell may soon sign with the Provident Music Group, which makes Christian inspirational music, The Tennessean reported Wednesday.

Speaking to the newspaper in Franklin, Tenn., where he was doing a fund-raiser golf tournament, Littrell said:

"It intrigues me. When the Backstreet Boys were riding high, my mom said, 'The Backstreet Boys are a mere stepping stone for you.' I didn't know what she meant then, but now I think I do. We've sold 68 million albums, and I would never have imagined selling that many. Why not use that as a tool?"

Provident Music Group President Terry Hemmings said the Littrell album would be released on Franklin-based Provident's Reunion Records label.

"It's something he's always wanted to do, and I think people will respond," Hemmings said.

Littrell told the Tennessean he will also continue to record with the Backstreet Boys.
