 Oh Gussie! Home Collection
Cooking, Entertaining and Decor Items Share Kimberly’s Favorite Stories with Cracker Barrel Shoppers

LEBANON, Tenn. (Oct. 19, 2015) – Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® and Kimberly Schlapman, member of Grammy Award winning country group Little Big Town, today announced the upcoming release of Oh Gussie!, a thoughtfully designed collection of home goods and kitchenware inspired by Schlapman’s love of cooking and her time at home with family and friends. The collection will be available exclusively at all Cracker Barrel Old Country Store locations and online at crackerbarrel.com starting Nov. 12, 2015.

Created and designed by Schlapman and the Cracker Barrel team, the collection includes a variety of items from whimsical kitchen utensils and inviting household décor to vintage-inspired dishes and nostalgic holiday items. Oh Gussie! will also feature a special set of pieces entitled “Paw Paw Pottery” that were inspired by the singer’s father and his recent love for creating pottery pieces as gifts for his daughter and family.

“From grandmother’s aprons to flea market finds, I have always had a great love for all things home,” Schlapman said. “Cracker Barrel and I have designed a collection of some of my favorite things, and I’m thrilled to share them with you. The ‘Paw Paw Pottery’ items hold a special place in my heart as they are all inspired by items my sweet daddy created by his own two hands on the potter’s wheel. I hope these goodies sing to you as they do to me and that they find a special place in your home to give you that cozy, nostalgic feeling.”

“What made this partnership special from the start is Kimberly’s love of Cracker Barrel and our shared passion for bringing friends and family together for a great meal,” said Laura Daily, senior vice president of retail for Cracker Barrel. “Every product we developed with Kimberly has its own unique story, representing different parts of her life. To watch her excitement as the Oh Gussie! retail line came to life was an absolute joy for us, and we’re thrilled to share it with our guests.”

The Oh Gussie! collection features 50 items that range from $3.99 to $39.99 and offer Cracker Barrel shoppers inspiration for holiday cooking and entertaining, as well as thoughtful gift ideas for anyone who loves creating a welcoming home. More information on the Oh Gussie! collection will be available on Nov. 12 at crackerbarrel.com, and Schlapman is currently offering a sneak peek of the collection at kimberlyschlapman.com.
