Drew Lachey, who is the bandmate and younger brother of Nick Lachey, was born in 1976 in Cincinnati, Ohio. After serving as a combat medic in the United States Army in the mid 90s’, Drew joined the band 98 Degrees alongside Nick, Jeff Timmons and Justin Jeffre. The group made hit albums such as 1998’s 98 Degrees and Rising and 2000’s Revelation. The sophomore album featured the song “Give Me Just One Night,” their highest charting single to date.
Following the band’s hiatus in 2002, Drew went on to perform in Rent on Broadway from January to March 2005 and appeared as a celebrity dancer on the second season of Dancing with the Stars in 2006 with partner Cheryl Burke. The pair were crowned the champions of that season. Drew returned to DWTS in season 15 of the show in 2012 where he performed with Anna Trebunskaya, but the duo were eliminated early on in the competition.
In 2012, 98 Degrees reunited once again and released their first studio album in over 13 years called 2.0 in 2013. Three years later, the group headlined the My2K Tour and released their Christmas album, Let It Snow, in 2017.
Drew married high-school sweetheart Lea Dellecave in October 2000. The couple welcomed daughter Isabella and son Hudson in 2006 and 2010, respectively.
