The character of Nancy, a precocious eight-year-old, first appeared in the strip Fritzi Ritz on January 2, 1933. Soon Fritzi's niece Nancy dominated the daily strip, which was retitled Nancy in 1938. Today Nancy is written and drawn by Brad and Guy Gilchrist who continue to regurlarly feature Nancy's aunt Fritzi. In the current version of Nancy, Fritzi works as a music reviewer and is often seen wearing T-shirts of musical acts, especially country performers.
The November 14 strip finds Nancy's aunt Fritzi giving a shout out to Music City Roots.

"Now we have made it," joked Music City Roots producer John Walker. "All kidding aside, it is thrilling to see Music City Roots name in the funny papers! This is a unique experience and to be part of such an iconic and long running piece of pop-culture is a true honor."
