It's that time of the year again!

After the very first Bluebird Reviews Awards assigned in 2016 to the wonderful Beth Hart as Artist Of The Year and to one of the finest bands currently in the music scene, the formidable Nashville trio Simo as Best Live Act of 2016, our website has put down the candidates for this year's categories.

Also, in view of the fact that Bluebird Reviews celebrates this year the 10th anniversary as a music website, our Team has decided to create a special Lifetime Music Award, whose winner will be mentioned on 31st October 2017, together with the winners of the other two categories.

Rock Super-Group Black Country Communion announces their return to the music scene by releasing their first single Collide from the forthcoming new album, simply called BCCIV.

After a long hiatus, following the release of their controversial 2013 third album Afterglow, the American Rock Band formed by Glenn Hughes, Joe Bonamassa, Jason Bonham and Derek Sherinian makes, through their new single, a clear statement on the direction that the album is going to take. Collide shows signs of a band determined to make a strong comeback to the music scene, with Glenn Hughes on vocals in stratospheric singing form.

The first ever Bluebird Reviews Music Awards has been one of the proudest moments in the history of our website and we are, without hiding our excitements, pleased to announce the winners for the two Award's categories:

The Award for 2016 Bluebird Review's Artist Of The Year goes to:

Bob Dylan - Azkena Rock Festival 2010 1

Bringing it all back home: Dylan Wins the Noble Prize in Literature

Stockholm, Sweden, 2016

Imagine the surprise of hearing Bob Dylan's raw untrained voice for the very first time back in the mid-60s. Recently the world experienced the same revelation when the famed and coveted Noble Prize in Literature was awarded to Dylan. This was the first time this honor was bestowed upon a musician. (The last "award" hoisted upon him was "spokesman of a generation." One that Dylan refused to accept.) Although his press team acknowledged the award with enthusiasm the iconic singer and songwriter did not speak out about it publicly for several weeks.Subsequently the committee was left in the dark.
On the other end of the spectrum the public and press were thrilled to honor him. This was a watershed moment for both the Noble prize as well as for popular music itself.Yet Dylan chose to remain in the shadows.
