GRAMMY and DOVE award winner Jason Crabb is headed to the “funny papers.” Famed illustrator and writer of the NANCY daily comic strip, 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 occasions Gilchrist will slip his favorite music icons within the frames of his work (most often with their names emblazoned on characters’ tee-shirts or in storefront signage). Such will be the case in the Tuesday, December 3 edition of NANCY 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 as 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 the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum. They are currently on display as part of the larger, ongoing exhibit, “Nancy Loves Nashville,” at the Nashville International Airport, which will run through 2015.
