If this is you, then you will aprreciate this book. In short it is a hysterically illustrated version, verse by verse of his epic Chrismas Song "Merry Christmas From the Family". It is designed by esteemed Nashville graphic designer Buddy Jackson, and it is done with wit and humor in keeping with the songs' lyrics.(...)
This book/CD combination is very nicely produced and is basically a funny color collage telling the story of the song. The CD has my favorite version of the song on it so you can follow along if you want, or more likely just listen and laugh.
I have given several of these as gifts over the last few years and they always get rave reviews. It's kind of sad that there is more than a little truth in the song, but nonetheless it's funny, dryly tongue-in-cheek, and very well done. While this may never overtake "Silent Night" or "O Come All Ye Faithful" in the pantheon of the world's most popular Christmas songs, it has a unique charm that is like nothing else, and I recommend it highly.
that likes humor and music combined will really
appreciate this. Robert Earl is not the best singer,
but he sure knows how to write a song.
Thank you REK!

Nobody does it better than Robert Earl Keen! He is the master of the funny and sometimes inappropriate songs for all.Published on April 7, 2013 by Rebecca R. Pillsbury
Love this! I have ordered it for all my friends and family over the years. Very funny and very politically incorrect.Published on January 9, 2013 by Solveig R. Peck
