Rock Hall and Goodyear Announce ‘From Garage to Glory’ Talent Search

Some great news for all musicians who are looking for a way to win some extra cash while also getting some amazing exposure! The Rock & Roll of Fame has partnered with Goodyear to create a talent search “From Garage to Glory,” where the winner will be granted $10,000 and an opportunity to perform at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Fest.

Now through May 16, solo artists and bands can submit an original song on and tell the story behind the lyrics and the music. Following the submission period, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and a panel of select judges will choose three finalists, giving music fans the chance to vote online for their favorite entry from June 21 through July 16. 

Remarkable things emerge when people have the passion, determination and vision to make their dreams a reality. That’s why we’re excited to introduce From Garage to Glory, a platform for aspiring artists to be recognized for their talent and creativity.

Karen Maroli, Goodyear vice president of marketing

The contest will conclude in October 2021, when the winning entrant performs live on stage at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Fest in Cleveland.

Every city has great local bands and solo musicians who work relentlessly to get discovered. We’re excited to celebrate and reward that drive by providing aspiring musicians with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Greg Harris, president and CEO, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
