Jonas Brothers, Taylor Swift to perform at RodeoHouston 2009



Alongside Taylor Swift, Jonas Brothers are scheduled to perform at next year's RodeoHouston, it was announced today by Leroy Shafer, the rodeo's chief operating officer.

Nick Jonas and his brothers are expected to play on March 8 at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas while Swift will take the event's stage on March 20. "We're thrilled about this presentation," Shafer shares his excitement concerning the upcoming stars-studded show. "To bring both of these acts in is just a tremendous coup for us. It's been our purpose throughout the years to provide affordable family entertainment to Houston."

The Jonas Brothers headlined a Valentine's Day show at Toyota Center and were the opening act on the Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus Best of Both Worlds Tour. The group's third album, A Little Bit Longer, was released in August and posted first-week sales of more than 525,000 copies. Groove-based single Burnin' Up became the band of brothers' biggest pop hit to date, peaking at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The JBros also scored three top-10 albums in one week earlier this year: a self-titled sophomore disc, A Little Bit Longer and the soundtrack to Disney flick Camp Rock.

"I think we've found a real good partnership with the Disney acts, beginning with Hilary Duff, then Miley Cyrus and now the Jonas Brothers," Shafer says.
