Hola friends! I love Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana but it sure is good to be home! Been working around the house all week, catching up on office stuff since we were on the road for almost a month! I just started Episode of Truth #31, FINALLY. It's been quite a while since the last video blog, so keep your eye out for this one in the next few days...
Here's a few sneak peaks...
That's all you get for now! That's it!! :) Have a great day! See ya on the road somewhere...
It's here! It's here! Fall Tour of Truth 2014... Starts tomorrow (Thur Aug 28) in Memphis, TN. Check the "Show Dates" page for all the Tour Dates... Here are some of the cities we'll be visiting:
Bossier City, LA
New Braunfels, TX

Hope you can make it out to a show near you! Or I'll just see ya next time around. Have a magnificent day!!!
VINYL Albums are finally in! Go over to the "Store" and order your copy today... There's only 50 available for sale, so you better move quick! :) Look around and grab you some other Stiefel stuff while you're there! Thanks, and I hope you have a glorious day!!!
Well, we're on day 26 of this 31-day tour. I love what I do very much, but I am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed this coming Sunday night after our shows this week/weekend! Haha. We've had some great shows, met some awesome people, laughed a lot, argued a little (it happens). But we're still chuggin' along! 4 shows this week, then back to Nashville. Here's a little picture summary of some of the happenings thus far...
(Some acoustic pickin' at my parents' house before leaving Alabama to head to Texas...)
(Got to lay by the pool for a few days in Austin with our friend Xandra, who by the way has on a tan bikini here. She's not nude, and she wanted me to make that clear for everyone...)
(Had the extreme pleasure of going to Willie Nelson's Heartbreaker Banquet at Luck, Texas, the set constructed on Willie's land for the movie "Red-Headed Stranger"... so freakin' cool...)
(This is just a great picture of my handsome rhythm section, Bromer and Slim.)
(Jack found him an awesome guitar at a shop in Austin... too bad he didn't get it...)
(Here we are rockin' Billy's Ice House in New Braunfels, TX. Fun night!)
(And of course, Slim sang to me while riding down the highway... Thanks Slim...)
(More ridiculous road behavior... not much to do in a van for hours and hours and hours...)
(So sometimes we randomly stop and record video playing acoustic on the side of the highway...)
(Slim found a tumbleweed...)
(Mark, checking Vanna White. Making sure she has all her necessary fluids...)
(Ol' Vanna White got us to Colorado!)
(This is a shot my cousin Glenn Rodgers took at the Trophy Room in Austin, TX. He's a phenomenal photographer. Check out his stuff at https://www.facebook.com/GlennRodgersPhotography)
Ok ok, I'm done with the pictures. There's always more if you follow me on Instagram and Twitter (@jacobstiefel). And be on the lookout for the next Episode of Truth on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/jjstiefel, as soon as I get back to Nashville and get it edited and posted.
If we're coming close to you in the near future, come out to a show and hang out with us! Until we meet again...
