Nashville, TN â€“ GRAMMY and DOVE award winnerÂ Jason CrabbÂ is headed to the â€œfunny papers.â€ Famed illustrator and writer of theÂ NANCYÂ daily comic strip,Â Guy Gilchrist, has chosen to highlight the lauded vocalist in an upcoming story arc. The strip is syndicated internationally in 80 countries, and viewed by 57 million readers around the world. On rare occasionsÂ Gilchrist will slip his favorite music icons within the frames of his work (most often with their names emblazoned on charactersâ€™ tee-shirts or in storefront signage). Such will be the case in theÂ Tuesday, December 3editionÂ ofÂ NANCYÂ when Jason Crabb will be highlighted.
Gilchrist, who resides in the Nashville area, has embedded his love for music within the strip, honoring artists such asÂ Elvis, The Beatles, Charlie Daniels, Rascal Flatts, Patti Page, George Jones, Don McLean, and many more. A collection of these music-related strips were donated to theÂ Country Music Hall of FameÂ® and Museum. They are currently on display as part of the larger, ongoing exhibit, â€œNancy Loves Nashville,â€ at the Nashville International Airport, which will run through 2015.
