We all know Bob Dylan's isn't the singer's real name. Those fans of Dylan's and even some casual observers of the icon's career know he was born Robert Allen Zimmerman on an unassuming May afternoon in Duluth, Minnesota in 1941. He grew up to become the performer that he is today, all under his assumed last name of "Dylan." There is no mistaking what he has done in his career to this point, especially considering his latest album will be his 47th -- an astonishing number. It's this newest album's content and theme, however, that makes it absolutely ridiculous and head-scratchingly odd.
Yes, if you haven't figured it out by now, the artist born Robert Zimmerman -- Zimmerman -- will be releasing a Christmas album. Christmas In The Heart will hit stores October 13, just in time for Halloween.
