They generally get rusted on. Does it turn pretty freely so that I can eliminate that the shoe is rubbing to tight against the drum? If it turns pretty freely then I would grab a nice big hammer. DO NOT HIT THE LUGS. Give a couple of raps to the drum along the outside edge. It should loosen up nicely.
