Cardinals pitcher caught crooning Billy Ray Cyrus – in a mullet wig

ST. LOUIS — You can tell the world you never was my girl, but don’t tell my eyes to forget what they just saw.

Or something like that.

What will now be forever burned into your memory is St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright singing the Billy Ray Cyrus hit “Achy Breaky Heart” while, of course, wearing a mullet wig.

The video stemmed from an ’80s-themed charity event for Make-A-Wish Missouri. Members of the Cardinals, including Wainwright and catcher Yadier Molina, participated in the event at a St. Louis restaurant this summer.

Wainwright signed a reported five-year, $97.5 million contract before this season started, but it’s always good to have a backup plan. For Achy Breaky Adam, it appears his includes karaoke.
