Firehouse Saloon says
Jason Boland & the Stragglers are an American Texas Country/Red Dirt group featuring Harrah, Oklahoma native Jason Boland (lead vocalist, guitar), Roger Ray (pedal steel, lead/rhythm guitar), Brad Rice (drums/backing vocals), and Grant Tracy (bass). Additional record contributions are made by Noah Jeffries on banjo, mandolin, and guitar.

Jason Boland and Brad Rice are both members of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.

The Bourbon Legend was released on Bruce Robison's Sustain Records label in late 2006. In 2007 Jason Boland co-produced the album Choices for the band Hazzard. The band's front man, Dana Hazzard, was the original fiddle player for the Stragglers.

In 2008, just before the release of the album, Comal County Blue, Boland ruptured a vocal chord. The injury almost caused him to lose his singing voice for good, but after surgery and resting his voice, he prevailed.

According to Katie Key, editor of the Texas Music Chart, "Comal County Blue" is the fastest growing single in 2008 from an independent label.

On April 20, 2010, the band released their second live album, entitled High in the Rockies: A Live Album. The recordings come from four live concerts over four days from January 7, 2010 to January 10, 2010. The shows were performed in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Ft. Collins, Colorado, Laramie, Wyoming, and Denver, Colorado, respectively.
