CMT has a songwriting contest. The grand prize is $5000 cash. That is a pretty nice check. It is a contest for amateur songwriters. CMT usually has about 2000 entries in their contest. I entered two songs. What are my odds of winning. My odds would be about 1 in 1000. That reminds me of Dumb and Dumber when Jim Carey asked the girl if he has a chance of her being his girlfriend. She says, Your chances are one in a million. A big smile breaks across Jim Carey's face and he says, " So your saying I have a chance." Yes, I have a chance.
