Hall of Famer Isaac Bruce: Size won't stop 166-pound DeVonta Smith from achieving NFL greatness

  Hall of Famer Isaac Bruce: Size won't stop 166-pound DeVonta Smith from achieving NFL greatness DeVonta Smith's slight frame was no problem for the record-setting WR at Alabama, and Isaac Bruce believes he won't have trouble in the NFL, either.It's one of the more intriguing questions awaiting an answer as the 2021 NFL draft draws closer. The Heisman Trophy-winning Alabama star's Q-Rating seemed to peak as he was blistering Ohio State's defense in January during a record-setting performance (12 catches) in the College Football Playoff title game – some draft observers even suggesting the New York Jets should consider him with the No. 2 overall selection.

Bruce Springsteen is the recipient of the 2021 Woody Guthrie Prize for his work carrying on the folk singer's legacy of using his music to highlight the plight of the poor and disenfranchised in the world. Guthrie , who grew up in Okemah, Okla., was one of the most important figures in American folk music and penned hundreds of songs, including some that The Boss has performed over the "The Woody Guthrie Center is proud to present Bruce with this well-deserved recognition for his lifetime of speaking for the disenfranchised and inspiring generations to find the power of their own voices," she added.

Joan Baez, Chuck D, John Mellencamp, Norman Lear, Kris Kristofferson and Mavis Staples are among the past recipients of the award.

Guthrie’s daughter Nora inducted Springsteen with a speech noting, “First, you attracted us, then you magnetized us…You spoke for us and to us and to top it off, entertained us.”

Quoting her father’s words, she said, “You’ve got to vaccinate into the stream of people’s lives. Bruce never left that stream. His words have always consistently flowed in that big stream and blood of the people. No different from my dad’s…The troubadour’s job is to express that flow of what is happening in the people’s lives and that’s mirrored in everything you do….The greatness of your work lies in the fact that you continue to remain in this flow. You never abandoned it.”

Springsteen said he was 28 when he began searching for some sense of salvation—ultimately finding it in Guthrie’s music. “I was going through a period in my life when I felt strangely hopeless,” he said. He has written and released the bleak masterpiece, 1978’s Darkness on the Edge of Town, which, was a “dark examination of what I felt my community of people that I come from and that I was speaking to, who were under siege.”

Bruce Springsteen has won the Woody Guthrie Prize , which is given annually to an artist seen as carrying on the spirit of the folk singer whose music focused on the plight of the poor and disenfranchised. Springsteen is this year’s winner of the Woody Guthrie Prize . The award honors artists of any medium who continue the legacy of the Oklahoma songwriter. Springsteen calls Guthrie one of his most important influences. The legendary performer will be honored in a virtual ceremony May 13.

Springsteen looked toward pop and country music in pursuit of hope, saying to Nora, “It wasn’t until I came across your father’s work that I found that hope.”

Guthrie’s “was the first music where I found a reflection of America that I believed to be true,” Springsteen continued. “Where I believed that the veils had been pulled off and what I was seeing was the real country that I live in and what was at stake for the people and citizenry who are my neighbors and friends.”

Springsteen was so influenced by Guthrie that he began performing “This Land is Your Land” in concert and found his music provided context “to [put] your work into some form of action and just a deeper telling of the stories of folks whose stories I often felt go unheard.”

In a short interview with Robert Santelli, Springsteen expanded upon the importance of “This Land is Your Land.” “Using that song in our show in the ’80s was a big moment for us because I was asking our audience to see us in a lineage of performers who were speaking to and for them and who had their eyes and lights set on a better world. That was a really essential moment in the turning of our work life.”

Guthrie “laid out a blueprint as a to way to go about that that could set you off on figuring the rest out on your own journey,” Springsteen said.

Santelli posited that Guthrie helped Springsteen expand geographically beyond his New Jersey roots, though Springsteen said he was already headed in that direction. “After my first two or three records I thought I don’t want to be labeled as… I love New Jersey. I’m from there [but] I’m interested in the country at large,” he said. “[Guthrie] took in the whole country and a whole vision that I found very very compelling and necessary and attractive and I wanted to try to fill just a little tiny bit of those shoes.”

The Boss spoke of the influence California had on his sound, dropping the news of the new set. “California was an enormous influence on some of my most topical writing through my ‘90s, 2000s and even now,” he said. “We have a record coming out soon that’s set largely in the West.”

The evening concluded with Springsteen playing two Guthrie songs on the acoustic guitar, before segueing seamlessly into two of his songs that serve as direct descendants to Guthrie’s material. He opened with “Tom Joad Part 2,” which, along with John Steinbeck’s novel The Grapes of Wrath, was the inspiration for Springsteen’s 1995 song “The Ghost of Tom Joad.” Next came “Deportee,” Guthrie’s searing song about migrant workers. “Immigration laws are a mess to this day,” said Springsteen as way of introduction.

He then shifted to his own work, starting with “Across The Border,” a wistful song from the standpoint of a Mexican dreaming of the better world for him and his love on the other side of the border, before moving “Ghost of Tom Joad.”
