Television personality and multi-platinum recording artist Nick Lachey recently joined Tostitos to kick off the college football bowl game season in New York's Times Square. The Sing-Offhost was joined by former college and professional football greats for the "Party with a Purpose" event which benefited Big Brothers Big Sisters; an organization very special to Lachey. For the past eight years, he has been a "Big Brother" in Los Angeles and has had the same "little" who is now 15 years old.
We caught up with Lachey to talk about his brand-new album, the possibility of kids with wifeVanessa Minnillo and how he first got involved with the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization.
How excited were you to be a part of the "Party with a Purpose" event?
The Fiesta in the Square sponsored by Tostitos is benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, which is an organization that I've been a part of for about eight years now. I've been a Big Brother so it's something I really believe in and have seen firsthand how impactful it can be in shaping the lives of young people. So I was very excited when they called me and asked me to be a part of it.
How did you first get involved with the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization?
They'd asked me to be the spokesperson for their centennial event about eight years ago and I said that I'd love to but that I wanted to learn more about the organization and so that's when I started to get involved and became a Big Brother and have been a Big Brother ever since.
For people not familiar with Big Brothers Big Sisters, can you explain what the organization strives to do for young people across the country?
Well, what it does is it pairs an adult with a young person who may be in need of some extra mentoring and guidance. In my case, my little brother's father had passed away when he was a baby and he didn't really have a male role model in his life, so his mom signed him up for the program. It's basically about being a big brother, being a friend, being a support-system, showing these young people that someone really genuinely cares for them, is there for them and kind of being a guiding force for them. I've seen firsthand how impactful it can be and how fantastic the results can be and as a Big I can also say it's probably the most gratifying thing that I've ever done in my life. I often joke that I get more out of it than my Little does and I think that's probably true.
Is it true you're working on a new solo album?
Yeah, I'm working on it right now, I'm going to finish it up the beginning of next year hopefully by the end of February and it will come out in summer. It's called, The Soundtrack of My Life. It's a concept album, it's taking songs from movies that were meaningful to me and meaningful as I grew up and covering songs from those movies so I'm pretty excited about finishing that up and getting it out there.
Are you and Vanessa Minnillo planning on having children anytime soon?
I think we both definitely want a family and I don't think there's any timetable necessarily for that. We're just enjoying being newlyweds and certainly that will come when the time's right; it's definitely something we look forward to at some point.
The Sing-Off has become a very popular singing competition on TV. Will you return next year as the host?
I certainly hope so -- it's been a lot of fun to be a part of that and to watch that show grow. A lot of days it doesn't even feel like work. It's just so much fun to be around all these talented people and to share that experience with them, so we certainly hope it comes back next year. And if so, I hope I get a chance to host it again.
What are your plans during the holidays?
For us it's really just about being with family so we're going to be in Cincinnati where my family is and hang out with the niece and nephew; watch them open some gifts and just enjoy family time.

Nick Lachey helped kick off the Tostitos Fiesta in the Square on Friday, raising funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters alongside a few NFL greats
Right in the middle of Times Square, Nick, former NFL running back Eddie George, former NFL kickers Bill and Martin Gramatica, Rodney Peete and more attempted to set the Guinness World record for most field goals made in six consecutive hours.
As a part of the event, Tostitos pledged $100,000 to BBBS.
"It's the ultimate party with a purpose," said Nick who has been involved with BBBS for close to eight years.

NFL legends Jim Kelly, Rodney Peete and more kick field goals in Times Square to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters and set Guiness World Record
Hundreds of NFL fans line up to attempt a kick at history
Friday, December 16, 2011
Nick Lachey isn't proud of it but he speaks the truth. "This year, it's been a catastrophic breakdown of my body," said the 38-year-old Lachey, who rose to fame in boy band 98 Degrees then became an actor. "I had to see the doctor about a pinched nerve in my neck. I have all these aches. I'm totally breaking down."
Nick Lachey kicked 2 of 3 field goals in NYC Friday afternoon. But that didn't stop Lachey from showing up in midtown Manhattan on Friday afternoon, along with football greats Jim Kelly, Rodney Peete, Eddie George, Antonio Pierce and the Gramatica brothers as part of the Tostitos Fiesta in the Square to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters. Taking place in the heart of New York City, the celebration converted the Times Square Military Island into a regulation-size college football end zone, where fans were helping set a Guinness World Record for the most people to kick successful field goals in six hours.
As part of the event, the Tostitos brand will donate $100,000 to BBBS. If the record is set, the Tostitos will double that amount. "I'm having a blast out here. We're going to set this record and get that extra money. We got really lucky with the weather," said Lachey, who is serving as party host. "It's great to see everyone here to help with this great cause." Lachey had always been around sports before moving into the entertainment industry. He even studied sports medicine at Miami (Ohio) University.
So after playing basketball and baseball, kicking a football through the uprights shouldn't be that hard, right? "It's harder than it looks. Granted, I did a little preparation before coming to New York," Lachey said. "I didn't make a complete fool of myself. I made 2-of-3. That's pretty respectable." And after this event, Lachey and his 31-year-old wife, Vanessa Minnillo, will head back to Cincinnati to celebrate the holidays and watch his favorite Cincinnati sports. Technically, he's still in the honeymoon period with his wife of less than six months. "She keeps me young, or she's aging me even quicker. I'm not really sure," Lachey said. "And we'll be in Cincinnati, the sports mecca of the world! After the great season the Bengals have had, we consider them already having won the Super Bowl."

There's a reason that iReporter Chris Morrow is considered a superstar around these parts. Not only does she file sumptuous reports from all over the country - she also scores interviews with tip-top talent like the hosts of NBC's "The Sing Off."
Morrow asked Nick Lachey, Ben Folds and Shawn Stockman our favorite question at this time of year, "Finish the sentence, 'It's not the holidays without...'" and got answers ranging from eggnog to...well, you'll just have to watch. And drool. And go make chicken. (You'll see.)
