Tony Kent and Jamey Gleaves sonic highway

In the heart of the vibrant music scene, this episode of “The Travel Wins” podcast unveils the dynamic journey of Tony Kent and Jamey Gleaves, the percussive backbone and bassist respectively, of the acclaimed band Whiskey Myers. This Texas powerhouse, further energized by Cody Cannon’s arresting vocals, the guitar mastery of Cody Tate and John Jeffers, and the rhythmic precision of drummer Jeff Hogg, has carved its niche in the music world through relentless touring and a profound connection with its audience.

As the sun sets on another town, another stage, Whiskey Myers continues to defy the constraints of genre, embodying the spirit of rock’n’roll with a blend that resonates with fans across the spectrum. When posed with the question of their musical identity, both Kent and Gleaves proudly shake off labels, asserting their essence as a rock’n’roll entity with a penchant for crossing boundaries and uniting diverse audiences. Their defining moment? Opening for the legendary Rolling Stones at Chicago’s Soldier Field in 2019, a testament to their universal appeal and the eclectic nature of their fanbase.

Tour life, as depicted by the duo, is a tapestry of exhilarating highs and inevitable lows. With the wisdom of experience, they reflect on the evolving challenges of life on the road. The older they get, the more poignant the absence from home feels. Yet, the allure of the stage, the electric buzz of anticipation from the crowd, and the heartfelt encounters with fans who’ve long awaited their performance fuel their passion. It’s a humbling yet gratifying odyssey that reinforces their commitment to their art and their audience. They also temper their road travels with a little golf when they get the chance.

Dive into this captivating episode of “The Travel Wins” as Tony and Jamey share their essence of the journey, the allure of the open road, and the unbreakable bond of their ‘band family’.
