In Oh Gussie! Cooking and Visiting in Kimberly’s Southern Kitchen, Schlapman shares recipes and stories from her roots in the Appalachian foothills of north Georgia, her travels on tour with the band, and from the life she loves back home in Nashville.
The book was written with James Beard and Award-winner author Martha Foose, and will be published by William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. William Morrow has acquired world rights to the book. Cassie Jones, VP & Editorial Director of William Morrow Cookbooks, negotiated the deal with CAA.
“I’ve been so excited about this that I could hardly stand the wait!” says Schlapman. “When I’m not on stage with Little Big Town, you can probably find me in my kitchen. As long as I’ve been singing, I’ve been cooking. I have poured my heart and soul into this book, and I hope these recipes and stories will inspire you and bring you closer to the ones you love as you fill up their bellies—and their hearts.”
