Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are making this a Christmas to remember with their music, and Gwen is sharing details about the magic of her new holiday single.

The pair released their song "You Make It Feel Like Christmas," and the song has quickly become one of our favorites because of it's unique sound. So how does a song that sounds like the perfect blend of No Doubt and country super star Blake Shelton become one of the most festive songs of 2017?

Well, Stefani told our sister station KKMJ-FM in Austin, TX that writing a Christmas song was tough, but she loves the final product. She explains more in the exclusive below.

"To be able to write an up-tempo Christmas song is a really tall order," Gwen says. "(You Make It Feel Like Christmas) is such a crazy mixture of both of us."

Since we're all feeling festive, we were wondering: what were the holidays like for Gwen Stefani when she was growing up?

"I have like the best parents in the world and they were creative," she shared. "So we went BIG in the Stefani house." 

Oh, what does THAT mean? Well, as you can hear in the interview above, it sounds like Christmas morning started off more like a fun football game for her family.

"You Make It Feel Like Christmas" is the title track of of Gwen's brand new Christmas album, which was just released this year. Click here to purchase You Make It Feel Like Christmas right now.
