Michael Cerveris: "Merry Christmas From the Family" (Robert Earl Keen). One of my favorite songwriters, Robert Earl Keen's "Merry Christmas From The Family" is my favorite Christmas song.

Maybe a trailer home is the modern day manger. We're definitely recording it for our Loose Cattle Christmas album next year… So ¡Feliz Navidad! from all of us.
When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life.
