In the sports world, superstition can tend to rein supreme. Superstitions come in the form of lucky attire and rituals, as well as curses (goats, etc.) but in the case of the 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs, it seems as though the real good luck charm has been none other than country music superstar, Brett Eldredge.
It all started at birth, as Eldredge was born a Cubs fan.
Last year, he threw out the first pitch at a Cubs game.
Over the years, he developed friendships with Cubs players, such as Anthony Rizzo. They have been known to throw their best attempts at the other’s craft, such as Rizzo singing on stage with Eldredge, and Brett spending time playing ball behind the scenes at Wrigley Field.

Brett Eldredge has “number one fan” written all over him, from his attire, to his presence at games, and down to his celebration – Fly The W!

He shot his video, “Wanna Be That Song” at Wrigley Field in the early summer of 2016.
Not only does he sport the attire and jerseys of the Chicago Cubs, but he got his puppy, Edgar, a matching Cubs jersey (awwww).
Eldredge missed the 50th anniversary of the CMA Awards to go to Game 7 of the World Series. On that day, he posted a video of himself singing “Go, Cubs, Go” to send encouragement and good vibes prior to the game. In case you have been 100% oblivious to the world the past few days, after 108 years, the Cubs FINALLY WON THE WORLD SERIES, at that very game.

Back in Chicago at the World Series Champions celebration rally and parade, Brett Eldredge sang his version of “Go, Cubs, Go,” with joy radiating from his being, and the biggest smile plastered on his face. He even got to hoist the Commissioner’s Trophy prior to the parade!
Chicago ain’t afraid of no goat, because they have THE GOAT – Brett Eldredge – on their side, root, root, rootin’ for the Cubbies!
