    A poll conducted by 60 Minutes and Vanity Fair found that 22 percent of respondents wanted The Boss, aka Bruce Springsteen, to write a new national anthem if the need ever arose, while 19 percent felt Dolly Parton would be the right choice. Then, 18 percent selected Stevie Wonder. Bob Dylan earned 11 percent of the vote, composer John Williams got 10 percent. Rapper Jay-Z achieved 8 percent, and Madonna grabbed 5 percent of the vote.
