Adam Wainwright elected to pitch one more year and call it a career after the season.
But the 41-year-old right-hander doesn’t appear to be going out of commission anytime soon.
In fact, he may have another career waiting for him once his playing days are over.
Recently, the two-time World Series champion and three-time All-Star was seen recording some music in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, which is well known for being an important location in music history.
Cardinals insider Rob Rains published a story about Wainwright’s time in Muscle Shoals, revealing that the veteran righty was actually in the process of making an album.

Waino’s New Hobby
Wainwright is a man of many talents.
Pitching is obviously his top strength, but there’s so much more to the veteran ace than just baseball.
In addition to his charity work, he’s got a passion for music.
In August, when the Cardinals were on Sunday Night Baseball, ESPN played a recording of a song Wainwright had been working on.
As it turns out, Wainwright is able to carry a tune quite well while singing and playing the guitar.
This is a side of the two-time World Series champion that few are aware of, but the ace seems to be on a path to making some quality country music once he decides to call it a career.
We certainly will not have seen the last of Wainwright, even when his career comes to an end.
