Songs We Love is a series and a podcast that looks at the stories behind some of the songs we're playing on our new music discovery stream, WUNC Music.

On this special holiday episode, Eric Hodge chats with Robert Earl Keen about his classic song 'Merry Christmas From The Family.'

Keen says he wrote the song simply to amuse himself, but when he started playing it around for friends he knew he had something.

I feel like if you're lucky enough to have something work for you, you need to embrace it.
