Brett Eldredge’s beloved Chicago Cubs won the World Series last week and the Illinois native took part in the joyous celebration. The country singer marched in a parade from Wrigley Field to Grant Park on Friday (Nov. 4) before he performed “Go Cubs Go” with members of the team.
Eldredge witnessed the historic Cubs win with his father and brother on Wednesday (Nov. 2) and says the experience was “a lifelong dream.”
The artist discussed his history with and love for the Cubs during an interview with People . “I grew up three hours south of Chicago – it was always a journey to come up and we’d plan trips around it,” he said. “Then I went to college in the suburbs for my first year so I spent a lot of time in the city and man, it’s like my second home. I’ve been a lifelong Cubs fan.”
Earlier this year, Eldredge filmed his music video for “Wanna Be That Song” at Wrigley Field.
“I chose Wrigley Field because I grew up going to games there and I’ve been a diehard Cubs fan from the day I was born,” Eldredge previously said in a press release announcing the video. “I’ve got childhood pictures from when I was still in diapers in a Cubs uniform. I love Wrigley Field, it’s such a magical place . . . a lot of my big moments have involved this place and this city.”
