At first, singer Aaron Carter's career took a back seat to his brother Nick's outings with the Backstreet Boys in the late '90s. But it didn't last long; he quickly scored a record contract and starting releasing hits, beginning with 1997's "Crush On You." Carter (pictured) plays Hartford's Great Hall at Union Station on Friday, where superfans can opt for a meet-and-greet with their favorite idol (cost: $70). Ohio DJ Chyrstian warms up the crowd.
