After decades of impeccable songwriting skills and amassing an almost mythical status as a premier musician and inspiration to millions, Bob Dylan was recognized on Thursday with one of the most prestigious honors possible.

Celebrated “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition,” Dylan is the first American since Toni Morrison in 1993 to be given this particular honor.

Congratulations, Bob Dylan — and thanks for all the wonderful music over the years.
