On May 6th, the digital airwaves were graced by a gem: "Pastures of Plenty," a cover song set to feature in the upcoming debut album by Gina Marie and the Golden Bucks. This musical ensemble, hailing from the heart of Chicago, pays homage to the iconic Woody Guthrie and the lineage of American troubadours who painted vivid portraits of the nation's working class. With this release, they invite listeners on a journey through the rich tapestry of Americana, weaving together sounds from Appalachia to the industrial cities, capturing the essence of the American musical experience.

"Pastures of Plenty" serves as a poignant window into the past, a snapshot of a bygone era when the land was as rugged as the people who tilled it. Penned in 1941 by Woody Guthrie, this track embodies the grit, the determination, and the unyielding spirit of the migrant agricultural workers who toiled under the scorching sun. It’s a tribute to their resilience, their camaraderie, and their unwavering belief in the promise of a better tomorrow. With Gina Marie’s expressive vocals leading the charge, The Golden Bucks breathe new life into this timeless classic, infusing it with their signature blend of soul-stirring melodies and foot-stomping rhythms.

As the lyrics "Green pastures of plenty from dry desert ground, From the Grand Coulee Dam where the waters run down, Every state in the Union us migrants have been, We'll work in this fight and we'll fight till we win..." resonate, the listener is transported to a bygone era of hardship and hope, where the spirit of perseverance prevails.

Gina Marie and the Golden Bucks emerge as a beacon of authenticity in the modern musical landscape. Led by Gina Marie DeGregorio, a seasoned drummer and vocalist, this band is a melting pot of talent, passion, and a whole lot of heart. The band draws inspiration from a diverse array of genres, ranging from folk, western swing, and old country to blues and early jazz. The ensemble's lineup reads like a who's who of Chicago's musical elite, with Brendan Frank on electric guitar, Edgar Gabriel on fiddle, Eli Broxham on bass, and John Rice on acoustic guitar, mandolin, and dobro. Together, they craft a sound that is both timeless and contemporary, paying homage to the roots of Americana music while infusing it with their unique flair.

The eagerly anticipated 10-track album promises a treasure trove of musical delights, transporting listeners to a world where time stands still. Tracks like "Where the Blue of the Night Meets the Gold of the Day" showcase the band's virtuosity, with Edgar Gabriel's fiddle dancing alongside Gina's harmonies and John Rice's dobro, evoking the golden era of early jazz. Meanwhile, original compositions like "Snake Around" offer a glimpse into Chicago's vibrant music scene, blending rockabilly with a rebellious spirit reminiscent of the city's industrial past. Each track is a testament to the band's creative vision and dedication to preserving the legacy of American music.
