Bruce Springsteen accepted the 2021 Woody Guthrie Prize on Thursday night in a virtual ceremony.

Springsteen told Nora Guthrie while he considers Bob Dylan the father of his country, he considers her father its grandfather.

"He was the first music where I found a reflection of America that I believed to be true, where I believed that the veils had been pulled off," Springsteen said.
