There are few things better than seeing Sam Gleaves and Tyler Hughes live. I had the privilege of seeing them perform at Queer Country Quarterly a few months ago, and it was truly a joy. They're two of the most aligned musicians I've ever seen. I've written before about Gleaves' triumphant Ain't We Brothers?, a magnificent selection of songs that addresses the queer Appalachian experience. I was one of the few people in the room who was familiar with Gleaves' original music, though I'm sure I didn't leave with that being the case. Not only was it thrilling to see them perform, but I loved seeing the recognition and appreciation of excellence dawn on everyone else there. In that moment, we all became a part of something bigger than ourselves. It doesn't happen often at shows, but I got a little teary.
