Amateur solo artists and bands have a shot at winning $10,000 and a chance to perform at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

The Rock Hall and Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. have launched “From Garage to Glory,” a nationwide talent search, according to a statement. 

Through May 16, amateur solo artists and bands can enter the contest by visiting FromGarageToGlory.com, submitting an original song and telling the story behind its inspiration, officials said. Three finalists will be chosen and music fans will be able to vote online for their favorite entry from June 21 through July 16.

The winner will not only get the cash, but will also perform at the hall’s Induction Fest in October in Cleveland.
