Bob Dylan’s Country Music Connection

In celebration of Bob Dylan’s 2013 CMA Nomination, for composing ‘Wagon Wheel,’ we take a look back at the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s Country Music Connections.

Bob Dylan landed national success in Country Music when Johnny Cash and June Carter recorded a Top 5 hit with his song ‘It Ain’t Me Babe’ in 1964. In 1987, Judy Rodman takes his song ‘I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight’ into the Top 10. Then, in 1989, Chris Hillman, Roger McGuinn and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band flew into the Top 10 with a cover of Dylan’s ‘You Ain’t Going Nowhere,’ from the Grammy Winning Will The Circle Be Unbroken Volume 2.

As Dylan continued to cross genres and have success everywhere, in 1998 he once again found his name in the Country Music history books, by writing the No. 1 Garth Brooks song ‘To Make You Feel My Love.’ In addition to his duet with Johnny Cash on ‘Girl From The North Country’ and his election into the Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, the songwriting talents of Bob Dylan have always been welcomed in Country Music.
