Kimberly Schlapman

For the past seventeen years, Kimberly Schlapman has brightened stages worldwide with her broad smile, blonde curls, and soaring soprano as a member of Grammy-winning country foursome Little Big Town. In September of 2012 Kimberly’s lifelong dream of hosting her own cooking show came true with Great American Country’s airing of Kimberly’s Simply Southern. In April 2015, Kimberly released her first cookbook, OH GUSSIE! Cooking and Visiting in Kimberly’s Southern Kitchen (published by William Morrow Cookbooks), written with James Beard Award-winner author Martha Foose. Kimberly shares delicious recipes and soul-stirring 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 country music’s capital. Kimberly currently lives in Nashville with husband Stephen and daughter Daisy Pearl, with whom she carries on the family tradition: “She loves to cook,” says Kimberly.
