With 2019 well on it’s way to becoming one of the hottest years on record, we are plain jubilant with the announcement of a new song from the king of country strange – fittingly titled “This Heat”
“Creepy steel guitar and haunting vocals! I didn’t think it was possible to get chills because of a song about the heat.”
– WLHR radio host Michael “Porkchop” Branch
“This Heat” debuted Friday morning on 92.1 WLHR radio in Lavonia, GA.

Fresh off his debut [Country Strange Vol. 1] earlier this year, Uncle Goo is once again grinding out another batch of his famous country + western tunes. His latest single “This Heat” is due out August 13th on Gypsy Farm Records.
Uncle Goo took a few moments away from his recent recording session at Gypsy Farm to dip into Shoal Creek and ponder on his living in Georgia as well as a favorite scene from the Johnny Cash bio-pic “Walk The Line”.
During the interview, Goo is joined by canine companions “Dash” and “Rufus” before giving a joyful rendition of Cash’s “Tennessee Stud” live from Shoal Creek. Watch and share the full interview via youtube link below:
Debuting high on the parkertown yodel-charts this morning comes “Country Strange Vol. 1” featuring a modest collection of original country songs pinned by long-running Gypsy Farm associate Uncle Goo a.k.a Garrett Chase Carpenter. We first got a taste of this sweet medicine back in the ladder part of 2018 with the release of two singles “I’m Tired” b/w “Mallory”.
“It’s all here folks – country and western tunes of loathe, love and gout.” says associate producer and graphic designer WJAY. As per usual, the standard GF band of cronies provide solid backing through-out the entire playlist given wing with the addition of pedal steel picker Matt “Pistol” Stoessel and lead guitarist Jake Stargel.
Country Strange Vol. 1 is available January 2nd on all streaming platforms including bandcamp and digipak CD.
Tune in to 92.1 FM WLHR Lake Hartwell Radio on January 4th to hear local DJ Porkchop sit down for an interview with Uncle Goo at 9:30am!
