Hank Williams has won a Pulitzer Prize, 57 years after his death. The late Mr. Williams was awarded a Pulitzer “Special Citation” for his “craftsmanship as a songwriter who expressed universal feelings with poignant simplicity and played a pivotal role in transforming country music into a major musical and cultural force in American life.”

In 2008, the Pulitzer Prize Board awarded a similar citation to a Hank Williams admirer, Bob Dylan.
