Insulation strapped ceiling


Hello,
My roof trusses are on 24" centers. I straped the ceiling with 1x3 every 16 o.c. The strapping is going to keep my r30 roll fiberglass from touching the drywall? Is this air space between drywall and insulation going to be an energy loss? Any tips or suggestions?
I do not want to use blow in insulation.
Thanks

I don't think it is a problem but you do have to close all gabs in the insulation so air can't sneak in and get cold air to the drywall,
