North Carolina’s Jo Bros get their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Now, hold up.  The world famous Jonas Brothers are from North Carolina?  Well, sort of.  Their Dad grew up around here.

We are counting them as our own because their roots run deep around here.  Their Dad grew up in Belmont and they own a restaurant here.  Ever been to Nellie’s Southern Kitchen?  Oh my, we have! Their grandmother made some mean chicken and dumplings and I have to have them every time I go in there.  To learn more about the Jonas Brothers ties to North Carolina get details from MSNBC.

The Jonas brothers gained popularity around 2005 with their appearances on the Disney channel and their fame grew and grew.  Joe Jonas recently guest starred on the Righteous Gemstones among other shows.
