Luke Bryan is truly a farm man and has an entire posse of animals.
During a recent appearance on Live! With Kelly and Ryan, fans discovered just how much the Bryan family loves their farm animals.
Host Ryan Seacrest, who is also friends with the “One Margarita” singer as he hosts American Idol, which Bryan judges, spoke about his farm. He described his farm as having a long driveway with endless land and a pond. He recalled that he would sit on his porch and then a turkey would fly by and then a llama would stroll by.
“A new animal shows up, like, every day,” Bryan admitted. “We have donkeys, pot-bellied pigs, pet turkeys… it goes on and on and on. Llamas, miniature goats. All this miniature stuff.”
Aside from not knowing how many animals he has, he also doesn’t know how much this is costing him.
“I told my accountant, ‘Whatever you do, never let me see the bill for all these animals. I’ll be done,” he said with a chuckle.
Some of the animals were from Brett’s Barn, which is part of the Brett Boyer Foundation. The charity was created to memorialize their niece, Sadie Brett Boyer, who passed away at seven months old due to complications from Congenital Heart Disease. The foundation’s overall mission is to spread awareness
Brett Boyer Foundation, which was created in memory of Caroline’s niece, Sadie Brett Boyer, who died at 7 months old from complications of Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). The foundation’s mission is to raise awareness of CHD, as well as supporting research for the disease.
Brett’s Barn’s mission is to fulfill a promise that Caroline made to her niece. She wanted her to adopt a white pony that the family met at a local rescue. Since then, they’ve added countless different species, some of them exotic. They even own kangaroos! The farm also made this a charitable endeavor not only for the rescuing of animals but for people too. Brett’s Barn invites patients at local children’s hospitals to come out to the farm to meet the creatures.
Luke Bryan on His Big Move to Nashville
Luke Bryan is currently promoting his new documentary My Dirt Road Diary that is airing on IMDb TV. The film covers the entirety of his music career.
In a recent interview with Sunday Today, he spoke about his love for Music City and how his plans changed. When he was ready to move to Tennessee from his hometown of Leesburg, Georgia, tragedy struck. His older brother Chris was killed in a car accident.
“When Chris passed away it was devastating because no one was more fired up about me going to Nashville than him,” Bryan said.
He then decided to pursue college and work with his father farming and processing peanuts. He later decided to finally make the big move and talk to his father.
“I remember the color of the sky the day we were riding in the truck, and I had the anxiety of asking my dad what did he think about me moving to Nashville,” Bryan recalled. “And he was like ‘If you don’t go, I’m going to kick you out of here. I’m going to fire you. I’m going to make you go.’”
