Barack Obama Is Giving Bob Dylan the Highest Civilian Honor in America

FUSE TV - Barack Obama Is Giving Bob Dylan the Highest Civilian Honor in America

Bob Dylan seems like a dude who's too cool to care about awards, but he's gotta be excited about this: he'll receive the highest non-military honor that the United States government gives when Barack Obama bestows the Presidential Medal of Freedom on him in a ceremony later this spring.

The medal is given to "individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.” Bob Dylan's national security credentials are a little thin, so we're assuming this one's for his contribution to world peace. Just kidding!

The White House praised Dylan for being among "the most influential American musicians of the 20th century,” because of “his rich and poetic lyrics” and his "considerable influence on the civil rights movement of the 1960s and... significant impact on American culture over the past five decades.”

Dylan has already won a National Medal of Arts, so he's probably used to this kind of treatment. Let us know what you think of Dylan winning the award in the comments below!
