So you are a passionate St. Louis Cardinls fan and you've been waiting for the opportunity to write a song about your beloved Cardinals Nation. Well, here's your chance!

If you feel you can pen the next hit depicting your love for the Cardinals, this may be your chance. Fans have an opportunity to share their words in music with this new contest.

Fans are asked to write, perform and share an original song or piece of music that celebrates and promotes the St. Louis Cardinals and their great fan base.

The one artist/group that is chosen as the winner of the contest will receive an expenses-paid trip to Nashville to have his/her/their song professionally recorded and mastered at the Shoe Box Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.

Songs must be original and less than five minutes in length. They must be submitted by Friday, June 22. You must provide a link to the audio or video performance via the contest submission form at cardinals.com/MusicContest.  

Musical submissions may be from any genre (i.e. country, rock, hip-hop, jazz, classical, a cappella, etc.), but must be an original work that does not borrow from existing songs, music or lyrics.

Good luck!
