Brett Eldredge is a man of his word.

When “Beat of the Music” was rising on the country charts, he made a bet with his team that if the song went to No. 1 he’d go swimming with sharks. And that’s exactly what he did.

PEOPLE reports that Eldredge celebrated his No. 1 song this past Wednesday (July 16) by going on a shark expedition with some friends. The experience was arranged through nonprofit group Rock the Ocean. And guess what? There was no cage!

“Getting past the fear of breathing underwater was the first step,” he told PEOPLE Country after the dive. “But when you get to the bottom it’s so peaceful and quiet. Our second dive was to this beautiful old shipwreck, and sharks were everywhere. The people who ran it told us the sharks are curious and would be swimming all around, but respect them and be smart and we’d be fine. I decided right away to be smart!”
