Brett Eldredge shows off his Illinois pride!

Last night, country singer Brett Eldredge released his new music video for “Wanna Be That Song” at Wrigley Field, the home of the Chicago Cubs. The stadium was also the location where the video was shot— making it the first music video to ever be filmed there.

As an Illinois native, Brett says it was ‘a dream come true’ to be able to shoot the video for his favorite song at such a historic sports arena. The video is a mash-up of Eldredge singing on the field with a 1940’s-themed flashback montage that chronicles the various stages of a couple’s relationship— from first dating to marriage and kids. Watch the music video below.

“Wanna Be That Song” is Brett’s third single off his sophomore album, Illinois. “Drunk On Your Love,” topped the charts at No. 2, and “Lose My Mind,” peaked at No. 1.

“Wanna Be That Song” Lyrics

The radio and a sundress
Making my world all a mess
Back corner of a cornfield
Bottle tops and a true spear
Pull the lever, lay the seat back laughin’
You slippin’ off your shoes
While the dashboard speakers sing every word of that moon

I wanna be that song that gets you high
Makes you dance, makes you fall
That melody rewinds years
Once disappear, makes time stall
Wanna be those words that fill you up
Pull your windows down and keeps you young
Makes you believe you’re right where you belong
I wanna be that song
I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be, wanna be that song
Oh, I wanna be, I wanna, I wanna

I wanna stand with you in the third row
Window booth at a bar
Back pew on a Sunday pourin’ out your heart
When the bleachers are crowded
When you’re sittin’ all alone
When the rain is pourin’ and you need something to take you home

Let me be that song that gets you high
Makes you dance, makes you fall
That melody rewinds years
Once disappear, makes time stall
Wanna be those words that fill you up
Pull your windows down and keeps you young
Makes you believe you’re right where you belong
I wanna be that song
I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be, wanna be that song
Oh, I wanna be, I wanna, I wanna

When you’re searching the horizon
When your eyes look back
When you’re standing in the moment
Every life has a soundtrack

Oh I wanna be, I wanna be, oh I wanna be
I wanna be that song that gets you high
Makes you dance, makes you fall
That melody rewinds years
Once disappear, makes time stall
Wanna be those words that fill you up
Pull your windows down and keeps you young
Makes you believe you’re right where you belong
I wanna be that song

When the highway’s calling
When the bottle’s dry
When the sky is falling and you’re asking yourself why
Oh, oh, I wanna be, yeah, oh
