Bob Dylan wins 2016 Nobel Prize in literature

- Bob Dylan is the winner of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.” Dylan grew up in Hibbing, Minnesota.

This is the first time the prestigious award went to someone primarily seen as a musician. According to the Nobel Prize, Bob Dylan is the first Nobel Laureate since George Bernhard Shaw to have been awarded both a Nobel Prize and an Oscar.

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar released this statement,

Like so many, I grew up listening to Bob Dylan’s music and it filled me with pride to say that he was from Minnesota. Born in Duluth and raised on the Iron Range in Hibbing, Bob Dylan has reminded us through song of his Minnesota roots – as we heard in the lyrics to his song Girl from the North Country, ‘If you're travelin' in the north country fair, where the winds hit heavy on the borderline, remember me to one who lives there, she was once a true love of mine.’ Congratulations to Bob Dylan on his unprecedented contributions to American music and for receiving this most-deserved Nobel Prize.
