Gaither Homecoming friend Jason Crabb has appeared on Grammy and Dove stages, at Carnegie Hall, the Grand Ole Opry and on the silver screen. Now, he is excited to make his debut ... in the funny pages! Guy Gilchrist, country singer/songwriter and the famed illustrator and writer of the "Nancy" daily comic strip, has chosen to highlight Jason's name in an upcoming story arc. The strip is syndicated internationally in 80 countries, and viewed by 57 million readers around the world. Occasionally, Gilchrist will slip his favorite music icons within the frames of his work (most often with their names emblazoned on characters’ T-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 was 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.
