Nicholas Scott "Nick" Lachey (born November 9, 1973) was a member, alongside his brother Drew Lachey , of the boy band 98 Degrees. He later married pop singer Jessica Simpson, and together they star in the MTV reality show Newlyweds.
Lachey was born in Harlan, Kentucky. According to the official 98 Degrees bio page, he was on his summer break from Miami University where he studied Sports Medicine and was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity when he was invited to join the group already in Los Angeles. Many of the group members are his former classmates from Cincinnati's School of Creative and Performing Arts.
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, despite the success of Newlyweds and the fact that a song from the album, "This I Swear", is the show's theme song.
