The buses are amazing! But, to me, it’s about more than just the bus

it’s the drivers and the company itself. Hemphill has always been there for me

with the best service anyone could ever want.

Joey and Trent Hemphill have always done business as a team. They grew up playing together, singing together, and traveling together. “Trent and I grew up riding buses with our family, The Hemphills, singing gospel music. The first bus I remember my dad owning was a 1962 Flexible.” The boys learned even more about buses when their father, Joel W. Hemphill, Sr., started his own bus leasing company as a sideline in 1974. This provided the boys a solid foundation when they decided to go into the bus business for themselves in 1980.

“Dad got out of the business,” Joey explains, “and sold his shop. And he sold two of his buses to us.” It wasn’t the first time the Hemphill Brothers had made purchases as a team. “We used to buy everything together,” Joey recalls. “We found out if we put our money together we could get more-we bought our first stereo and our first car that way. It seemed natural that we’d become equal partners in business.”

This family tradition and knowledge of the coach leasing industry provide a vital springboard for the young men-Joey was only 21 and Trent 20. They continued singing, often running the bus company from hotel rooms on the road. But their perseverance paid off. Two buses soon became 6, and the small gravel lot and barn they used gave way to a four-bay garage. They hired staff and continued to expand their fleet as well as their list of exclusive clients from the music industry. Word of mouth spread about the reliability and extraordinary service of Hemphill Brothers Coach Company, and in 1989, Trent and Joey left the road to focus on the growing business. They stopped outsourcing their bus conversions and brought everything into their own facility, overseeing the quality and special requests of their clients. By 1991, the company had 12 coaches, an experienced office staff, and a professional team of mechanics and drivers. Their client list expanded and by 1995, the brothers moved their flourishing business into what has become a 55,000 square foot office complex and shop facility in the current location on more than 15 acres just outside Nashville, TN.  Hemphill Brothers coach rentals can take business groups, families (with pets), ball teams, couples or individuals across the country on your personal schedule in style.  Our coach rentals include sleeping quarters (up to 12), restrooms, kitchens and a lounge where you can be self-contained on your journey.  Your custom luxury bus rental also comes complete with a driver so you don’t have to worry about anything.

Celebrity Motor Coaches provided by Hemphill Brothers Coach Company - Celebrity Motor Homes

We have a unique combination 

of talent and experience allowing

us to offer such a diverse

range of luxury services.

A“ bus looks and feels its best when you use the very best. All of our buses’ interiors are handmade and custom designed. We create our buses with top of the line materials such as genuine leather, hardwood flooring, granite, marble and quartz. The combinations of these items produce a gorgeous bus interior. We also go the extra mile with what you don’t see to make the bus more elaborate. We do all the wiring, plumbing and electrical work in house in order to exceed the expectations and needs of our clients. We upgrade the sound system, the television and additional video equipment to the top of the line electronics. Heated marble bathroom floors, Apple TVs, WI-FI, powered blinds, air pocket doors and HDTVs are a few of our favorite high end features. Every little detail is carefully selected to make the bus as elaborate as possible when combined for a finished product. Based out of Nashville, TN, Hemphill Brothers Coach Company offers convenient bus rental, celebrity motor coaches, entertainment coaches, coach leasing options and used coach sales. 

Back lounge of Hemphill Brothers Celebrity Motor CoachesOur Celebrity Motor Coaches have included everything from an upright piano in the front lounge for Harry Connick Jr. to a treadmill in the back lounge for Taylor Swift to three rolling television studios for ABC news,” said Joey. “We have also managed to create an indoor fireplace, tanning beds, mobile museum complete with display cases, recording studios and numerous other outside of the box requests. Additionally, we have worked extensively with the U.S. Secret Service to provide vehicles for Presidential detail for more than a decade. You never know what the next person is going to ask for, but that is what makes building a bus so much fun. No two buses are alike and there is always going to be new challenges around the corner.

Our | Facility


Located just outside of downtown Nashville, TN

Hemphill Brothers Coach Company houses a full

on-site staff with over 100 coaches

and more than 150 drivers.



The conversion shop is prepared to handle everything from the construction of custom interiors in new buses to minor modifications in existing buses.
Everything is custom-built: walls, furniture, staterooms, bathrooms. Our master craftsmen use the finest materials available to bring life to our own designs or those brought to us by an artist. Details are important: We also staff complete wood finishing and upholstery shops to maintain our high-level of quality down to the last screw and seat cover. Modifications-from changing a hard-to-reach light bulb to redesigning the sleep quarters-arehandled with the same care and expertise as a new conversion. We frequently alter our own fleet to meet the request of a client. We also make modifications on buses owned by other companies and artists. A Hemphill Brothers Coach is a rolling hotel suite, a luxurious and comfortable home for your time on the road. Our buses are the finest, convenient, and dependable touring coaches on the road.

Hemphill_Brothers_ScreenControl2Lately, Hemphill Brothers upgraded control panels in their coaches to a touch panel system.  This allows passengers to control air doors, shades, lights and other electronic devices with the touch of a button.  Some star buses are even equipped with an Apple iPad operating system.  Clients can control features of the bus from anywhere in the bus from a single Hemphill app.  Coaches can also include a multi-view camera system, where passengers can view the outside perimeter of the bus while sitting or in motion. The GPS system is accessible throughout the coach on monitors and plays an important role when driving across the country. We also are constantly updating televisions with Smart HDTVs, game systems, aircards and stereo equipment with the newest features.  Installing Apple TVs on our coaches is now a standard.

Where do your drive your coaches? All over the US? The World?
We have over 150 certified CDL drivers in a driver pool at Hemphill Brothers. Where they drive the coaches honestly depends on the tour and the client. Our Broadway tours travel 200 days a year with very limited breaks and then we have some artists that perform one off shows here and there, but keep their bus just in case they need it. Our clients live all over the world and many in multiple locations. We meet them where they currently are and take them where they need to go. For instance, we service several movie stars who own a half a dozen or more homes that we are constantly transporting from one location to the next. We are responsible for their travel needs and they enjoy the convenience and flexibility of traveling on a luxury tour bus across the entire United States and Canada. Collectively our buses traveled over 6.6 million miles in 2013.
