Brothers Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas signed with Columbia Records in 2005 as a trio of musically gifted brothers -- the Jonas Brothers, to be exact. Together, they dropped their debut effort, It’s About Time, in 2006. After a label change, they followed up with their sophomore self-titled album in 2007, which helped solidify their place as pop superstars and teen heartthrobs, who became synonymous with the purity rings they each wore as a sign of their commitment to chastity. Soon, the brothers were making a crossover as actors, appearing in the Disney Channel series, Hannah Montana, and starring in the channel’s original movie, Camp Rock, and its sequel. Likewise, Joe and Nick became known for famously dating fellow young pop stars, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus, respectively. The brothers dropped their third album, A Little Bit Longer, in 2008, which brought with it the hit single, “Burnin’ Up." In 2009, the Jonas Brothers released their fourth LP, Lines, Vines, and Trying Times. Since then, the brothers have been on an indefinite hiatus as a band, as Kevin focuses on his marriage and family and Joe and Nick explore their respective solo careers.
