Guy Gilchrist Draws Inspiration From Country Music

Guy GilchristGuy Gilchrist is an award-winning cartoonist perhaps best known for the popular ‘Nancy’ comic strip, syndicated in close to 350 newspapers in 80 countries. In his drawings of the strip — featuring Nancy, her Aunt Fritzi and best friend, Sluggo — Guy has often featured references to popular country artists, whether in a picture on the wall or a t-shirt worn by one of the characters. But his connection to country music doesn’t stop there.

The cartoonist is also a singer-songwriter whose tunes have been recorded by artists including Anne Murray and Suzy Bogguss. And he’s performed on the Grand Ole Opry, where his drawings are enshrined on a backstage wall at the hallowed venue.

This Christmas season, the singing cartoonist is spreading some comical cheer with the release of ‘Merry Christmas, Sluggo (San Quentin School for Boys),’ a holiday-themed send-up of Johnny Cash‘s ‘Folsom Prison Blues.’

Guy is donating songwriting royalties and a portion of proceeds from the sales of the new project to Boys Town. For more about his music, check out Guy’s official website and his MySpace page.
