Bruce Springsteen National Day

Bruce Springsteen gets a national day. He joins the ranks of other musicians like Prince, Jimi Hendrix, Beyonce, Bob Marley, Aretha Franklin, and Michael Jackson, among others.

On Saturday, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced at the American Music honors held at the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music at Monmouth University that on September 23, Bruce Springsteen's birthday will be officially known as Bruce Springsteen Day in New Jersey. Murphy also tweeted the announcement out.  

"Bruce Springsteen is one of the most recognizable, iconic and influential musicians – and New Jerseyans – of all time," Murphy said." It is important that we recognize Bruce for all he has done and will continue to do, from giving us the gift of his music to lending his time to the causes close to his heart, including making the Archives and Center for American Music a repository that will inspire tomorrow's songwriters and singers."

The governor poked fun at himself by saying he might be the 56th individual to be called governor, but there was only one Boss, a sole honor only taken by Mr. Springsteen. 

Springsteen became known as the archetype of rock performances of the 1970s and 1980s. His third album, Born to Run, released in 1975, Transformed Springsteen into a rock and roller from head to toe. Springsteen graced the covers of both Time and Newsweek the week of the album's release, according to Encyclopedia Britannica. 

After the album Born to Run, Springsteen's refusal struck a sensitive thread with the corporate world and the record labels. However, his performances and reputation earned him power and popularity amongst his fans. 

Springsteen has also received numerous awards. In 2009 he performed at Barack Obama's historic presidential inauguration. That same year, he was awarded the Kennedy Center Honors, co-honorees Mel Brooks, Robert DeNiro, jazz great Dave Brubeck, and opera singer Grace Bumbry. According to various news reports 

He has also won an Academy Award and a Grammy Award for his 1994 hit single, the AIDS-related "Streets of Philadelphia," from the film Philadelphia

According to Murphy, Springsteen has been the epitome of New Jersey Values.

"I am both honored and proud to declare his birthday Bruce Springsteen Day in New Jersey," He said.
