Luke Bryan’s mother lost her house to a tornado in 2018, and Luke helped her get back on her feet. He is her only son since the rest of the children passed away a while ago. Luke also adopted the children of his dead sister. Now, he supports his mother.
Luke has always been family-oriented, but over the years, he started taking care of his family more following a series of tragedies. Most recently, Luke has been spending a lot of time with his mother, LeClaire Bryan. The two have a close relationship, with Luke often featuring her in his social media posts.
It’s no wonder that Luke and his mother are so close. He’s the only one of her children who hasn’t passed away, so the two have realized the importance of sticking together. After Luke’s brother and sister died, he became responsible for much more than his antic-filled mother.
The musician decided that it was his responsibility to keep the family afloat. Although he already has children, Luke took his sister’s kids in as well after she died, resulting in quite a sizeable family to look after. The singer and his wife are now raising their two sons, their two nieces, and a nephew.
Luke’s older brother, Chris, died in 1996 in a car crash when he was only 26. Luke was about to leave for Tennessee to start his music career at the time. The musician’s sister, Kelly, passed away suddenly in 2007 at 39. Lee, her husband, followed her into the grave almost seven years later.
Luke and his wife reportedly never even thought twice about taking in Kelly and Lee’s children after their father died. But raising five children is no easy feat, and Luke couldn’t have done it without his wife, Caroline Boyer. The singer praised her parenting, saying her effort is terrific.
Hurricane Micheal Comes for Luke’s Mom
Years after Lee passed on and Luke gained three more kids, the worst of the tragedies seemed to have passed. Finally, the family had some time to catch their breath and recover from the shock. The calm wouldn’t last very long, though, as Hurricane Micheal was coming, and LeClaire’s home was directly in its path.
