BOB DYLAN: Presidential Honor
|Bob Dylan will get America's highest civilian honor when he receives the Medal of Freedom from President Obama this spring. Also being honored are astronaut and former senator John Glenn, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison.
Obama says, "They've challenged us, they've inspired us and they've made the world a better place." Dylan, who Obama honored in 2010 with an arts and humanities award, had no comment on this latest commendation.
Dylan is on tour in South America with a show tonight in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
