(Radio.com) Due to an apparent scheduling conflict, Bob Dylan won't be attending the Nobel Ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden, but even if he won't be performing some of the songs that earned him the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Committee still has plans to honor him with a musical tribute.

During the awards ceremony on December 10th, singer-songwriter Patti Smith will perform Dylan's song "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall" off his 1963 album The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan.

Dylan will be there in letter, if not in person. The Nobel Committee announced that Dylan sent an acceptance speech, which will be read during the banquet to follow later in the day at City Hall. Read more here.
