Former San Francisco Giants pitcher, Barry Zito, has written a theme song for his former team.

No, not the Oakland A’s. No, not the San Francisco Giants. Barry Zito has written a theme song for Oakland’s Triple-A affiliate, the Nashville Sounds. Ever heard of them?

What can’t Barry Zito do?

During his fifteen year career, Zito won a Cy-Young, two World Series Championships, and also happened to be one of the most handsome players to ever play the game…

I mean…seriously? That’s just not fair Barry…

Many people do not know that Zito pitched for the Nashville Sound during the 2015 season.

Ok, well he pitched 7 innings and gave up 12 hits and 8 runs, but that is beside the point. Zito was not only continuing his passion of playing professional baseball, he was also positioning himself in a place that allowed him to hone in and work on his new career.

Barry Zito has excelled at basically everything he has ever done, and that’s not changing now that the retired southpaw has moved on to singing and songwriting. Zito released his debut album – “No Secrets” – this past January, and quickly was featured on the Billboard Charts.

Zito hit  No.15 on the Americana/Folk Album Sales, No.18  on the Heatseekers Albums and No.39 in Country Album Sales. (Billboard.com)

LOOK OUT LUKE BRYAN.

Barry Zito will always be a legend in my eyes…

He redefined a pitch.

He won a Cy-Young.

He signed the largest contract for a pitcher in 2006, at around $18 million a year. (#PowerMovesOnly)

He pitched almost 8 innings of shutout baseball against a great Cardinals offense in an elimination game in the NLCS.

He is a two time World Series Champion.

He is a Billboard Top Chart artist.

He wrote and sings the 2017 Nashville Sounds theme song…

"That Sound" by Barry Zito

We're excited to introduce "That Sound" by Barry Zito. A former Cy Young Award winner and Sounds pitcher himself, Zito co-wrote the song with Sergio Sanchez.
