Several Nashville songwriters contributed to a new book and companion CD titled The Shoe Burnin’: Stories of Southern Soul.
Lari White produced the companion CD that includes 18 works. She also makes her debut as an author with her “Girl Shoes” story in the book.
Among the 24 authors and singer-songwriters who contributed to the project are Chuck Cannon, Lisa Carver, Chuck Jones, and guest vocalist Sarah Buxton.
Here’s a little history behind the title, according to a press release: The first Shoe Burnin’ originated when a group of writers found themselves in a cabin with no firewood — only a box full of old shoes. As each shoe was thrown into the fire, they made up stories about it. Over time, this became a tradition, and in remembrance, many stories and songs shared since have involved shoes — all the places they trod and the myriad experiences of those who wore them.
