Brett Eldredge Celebrates “Beat of the Music” Going Gold with a Shark Diving Adventure (@bretteldredge)

sharkdiving_zpsc93628f7Atlantic recording artist Brett Eldredge’s “Beat of the Music” was just certified gold by the RIAA, while the song hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart June 16th.

To celebrate the occasion of the song reaching No. 1, Eldredge made a jump into the water with the sharks just off the coast of the Bahamas on Wednesday.

After making it back to dry land alive and well, Brett was elated and shared, “People celebrate No. 1’s and gold singles in different ways. I just happen to be lucky enough to have some of my best friends in the world come out and celebrate with me in a BIG way. I want to thank everyone at country radio, my management and promotion teams and my family, friends and fans who have supported me all of these years. Life is good. Rock the Ocean. Love life….it’s all you’ve gotta do!”

The enthusiastic stunt was part of a bet Eldredge made before the song hit the top of the charts, when he agreed to go shark diving should he be lucky enough to have his second consecutive single off his debut album reach No. 1. This underwater gold single and No. 1 plaque presentation is believed to be the first of its kind.

Eldredge and his team made the dive in association with The Rock the Ocean Foundation, who organized the shark diving adventure with Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas. Rock the Ocean’s mission is to increase public awareness about impacting the world’s oceans and to support scientific research, education and the ocean conservation initiatives.
