Man of the Day: Nick Lachey
Nicholas Scott "Nick" Lachey, born November 9, 1973 in Harlan, Kentucky, was a member, alongside his brother Drew Lachey, of the boy band 98 Degrees.
Nick Lachey was on summer break from studying Sports Medicine at Miami University in Ohio when he got an invitation from a high school friend to join an up-and-coming vocal group in Los Angeles. Nick had always been torn between his loves of sports and music, but it appeared that music would win out this time. Shortly after joining Jeff in California, Nick realized that his friend, Justin, and his brother, Drew, would fit perfectly in the group. A few phone calls, several plane flights, and thousands of driving miles later, the foursome was complete.
All four albums released by 98 Degrees went platinum. In the fall of 2002, Lachey went solo and in November 2003 he released his first album, SoulO, which is generally considered to have been a flop(sold over 105,000 copies), despite the success of Newlyweds and the fact that a song from the album, "This I Swear", is the show's theme song.
Lachey played Leslie St. Clair on the witch drama series Charmed for six episodes.
Lachey has now signed with Jive records and is preparing for his next album.
