It was just a matter of time until Little Big Town’s southern belle Kimberly Schlapman added cookbook writer to her long list of accomplishments. An avid cook, Schlapman’s first cookbook “Oh Gussie! Cooking and Visiting in Kimberly’s Southern Kitchen” is set to be released April 14.
“I’ve been so excited about this that I could hardly stand the wait!” says Schlapman in a recent press release for the new book. “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.”
In addition to the southern rich recipes Schlapman is known for, the cookbook will also include the stories behind the recipes, “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 country music’s capital.”
Schlapman debuted her GAC cooking series “Kimberly’s Simply Southern” in 2012.
