I just read that Hank Williams was awared with a Pulitzer Prize. I used to think that Pulitzers were for journalists, until Bob Dylan was awarded with on in 2008. Theolonius Monk and John Coltrane have been awarded Pulitzers as well. Well, if you can get a Pulitzer for making an absolutely titanic contribution to music, they've choosen their recipients well. Hank Williams is obviously an absolute icon of country music, but really he should be on the Mount Rushmore of popular music in general.  If you're not that familiar with him, check out the 2 CD set The Ultimate Collection and you'll see what I mean.
