BRETT ELDREDGE DEBUTS MUSIC VIDEO FOR “WANNA BE THAT SONG” AT WRIGLEY FIELD
Historic Ballpark Is Setting for Unprecedented Filming & Debut
NASHVILLE, TN – (June 22, 2016 – Brett Eldredge can visualize the
music video for every song he writes, and he knew in the instant he
completed writing "Wanna Be That Song," it needed an epic video. So the
Illinois native, who grew up going to Chicago Cubs games, turned to the
epic and historic game of baseball and Wrigley Field to tell the story.
"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," said Eldredge.
"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."
With Wrigley Field as the setting, the cinematic video uses baseball
to represent the journey of life. It features Eldredge beginning as a
young boy in the stands, to experiencing his first kiss, to fatherhood
and beyond. "I wanted to capture this video in this stadium because
"Wanna Be That Song" is all about those big moments in life, and a lot
of my big moments have involved this place and this city," said
He returned to Wrigley Field for an unprecedented experience on
Tuesday night as the Cubs took on the St. Louis Cardinals. Before the
game, Eldredge premiered the video on the Jumbotron, and then threw out
the ceremonial first pitch of the game before leading the crowd in "Take
Me Out To The Ballgame" for the Seventh inning stretch.
People Magazine, Sports Illustrated and Entertainment Weekly will share the video nationwide today and fans can watch here.
Top 30 and climbing, "Wanna Be That Song" is the third single from
Eldredge's most recent album, Illinois, which has already yielded the
#1 singles "Lose My Mind" and "Drunk On Your Love." With five
consecutive # 1 singles, Eldredge is currently on tour with Keith Urban
on the Ripcord Tour, and will co-host the CMA Music Festival: Country's
Night To Rock, which airs August 3 on ABC.
