THE GINA FURTADO PROJECT & GINA FURTADO
“True Life Blues”
“True Life Blues” is a fresh take on a song that dates back to the music’s earliest days. It’s also a tribute to a couple of bluegrass giants: Bill Monroe and Hazel Dickens. The song is a lament for the misfortunes of married life for too many women. “It was fun to honor two of my favorites, Bill Monroe and Hazel Dickens, with one song,” says Furtado. “As a very happy ex-housewife, this song sure feels relatable!”
