Dylan is being honored as the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year in recognition of his extraordinary creative accomplishments. Proceeds from the annual Person of the Year tribute — now in its 25th year — will provide essential support for MusiCares, which ensures that music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical and personal need.
The MusiCares Person of the Year tribute ceremony is one of the most prestigious events held during GRAMMY Week. The celebration culminates with the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center on Sunday, Feb. 8. The telecast will be broadcast live on the CBS Television Network at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
