COLUMBIA/NASHVILLE's MONTGOMERY GENTRY recently took an animated form as characters in the "NANCY" comic strip, which ran on SEPTEMBER 27th. MONTGOMERY GENTRY's JUNE 23rd induction into the GRAND OLE OPRY was the inspiration for an episode of the internationally syndicated strip.
TROY GENTRY said: “What a nice surprise in my SUNDAY paper! I think we might have made NANCY’s aunt’s shirt once, but to be the subject and for them to include our OPRY induction is very cool. And I’ve always wondered what I’d look like as a cartoon. Very flattering.”
The strip was created by ERNIE BUSHMILLER in the 1930s, and since 1995, has been drawn and written by GUY and BRAD GILCHRIST, the cartooning team behind THE MUPPETS comic strip. At present, “ NANCY,” with more than 70 million regular readers, may be viewed in more than 350 U.S. newspapers, as well as in publications in some 80 countries.
