Anne Murray On 'Family Guy': Why The Singer's 'Snowbird' Took Center Stage

Chances are the average "Family Guy" viewer had no clue who Anne Murray was ... up until the Sunday, Feb. 18 episode.

In "Chris Cross," Stewie became obsessed with Anne Murray's "Snowbird." The obsession soon spread to Brian and the two traveled to meet the Canadian singer in order to learn the true meaning of the song. Murray voiced herself.

Creator Seth MacFarlane took to Twitter to explain the inspiration behind the storyline.

Watch Stewie hear "Snowbird" for the first time and meet Anne Murray below and then give the song a listen yourself.

"Family Guy" airs Sundays, 9 p.m. on Fox.
