“Indeed, this is less a case of a songwriter having his finger on a pulse than one who has his whole hand wrapped around a heart.” – Gordon Lamb – Athens, GA
“Uncle Goo’s celebration of one of the South’s finest eating establishments is half parody, half homage to the great country music from the ’70s that, on a good visit, plays on TouchTunes as you nosh on those world-famous hash browns. ” – Bobby Moore / Wide Open Country
