Three teen idols - Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC - dominate today's pop music scene. Together, they sell millions of records, make millions of dollars and have millions of fans.
The also have something else in common: manager Johnny Wright.
"I know what a star is to me," Wright tells Troy Roberts. "Now it's my job to go out and convince the world of that."
Spears calls him "a great friend, a talent, a cool guy." NSYNC's Justin Timberlake and Chris Kirkpatrick call him a master of the music business. "He goes beyond what a manager should do," says Timberlake. "You can tell he always takes pride in making sure the acts he's involved with have a great show."
Wright, 41, started small in Cape Cod., Mass., as a music-loving teen-ager with dreams.
