2018 Cardinals Fan Music Contest - #CardsMusic

Winner of the 2018 Fan Music Contest

Cardinals Nation (Hearts Are Pumpin')
KT Clark feat. Nite Owl, Lyrics by Beth Huonker, arranged and produced by Nathan Hershey


Few things go better together than music and baseball. From the venerable classic Take Me Out to the Ballgame and Here Comes the King to the heart-pulsing walk-up songs of our favorite players, the soundtrack of baseball is interwoven into the fabric of our great game.

Now, you have a chance to put your mark on the Cardinals by sharing your talent and creativity!

Do you have musical talent? Can you write music or perform? Are you waiting to be discovered, but just need to get your music in front of the right people? Well, this is your big chance!

We already know we have the best fans in baseball, but this is our chance to show the world that we also have the most talented fans! Our fans are as creative and musically gifted as they are diverse.

Whether you sing, tickle the ivory, play the guitar or rock out with your own mix deck, we are calling on you to put your unique talents to work for us!

It can be whatever you imagine…a team fight song, a fan anthem, a bird ballad, an adrenaline pumping, rally-generating, stadium rocking fan chant or any catchy tune that celebrates the St. Louis Cardinals so long as it is a completely original work you will share with us!

We are asking you to write, perform and share the original Cardinals-inspired song via either a video or audio file.  

Eligibility

Whether you are a solo artist, a garage band, a choir or a symphony orchestra, you are welcome to share your song with Cardinals Nation!

Prize

One talented performer will be crowned the winner and will receive an expenses paid trip to Nashville to have his/her song or piece of music professionally recorded and mastered in the professional recording studio "The Shoebox" in Nashville. In addition, the Cardinals will produce a professional video of your recording session and share it with all of Cardinals Nation!

Your submission must be an original work that you own and are willing to share for free with the St. Louis Cardinals. We ask that you share an audio file or a video of you performing your work via the contest submission form.
