The album's lead single became a top five hit in the United States. Their fourth studio album, Lines, Vines and Trying Times (2009) became their second to top the charts in the United States. The brothers also starred in two of their Disney Channel series from 2009 to 2010, being JONAS L.A. and Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream.
