Luke Bryan Helps Fan Adopt Stepson at His Concert: ‘You Got a Good Dude’

by Samantha Whidden

Country superstar Luke Bryan helped out a fan in the most adorable way during his concert stop in Connecticut on Friday (July 16th). 

In a fan-made video, Luke Bryan is seen with a shirt from the fan that reads, “Hey Luke, I want to adopt my stepson. Can you help me ask him?” The country star read the shirt out loud. Then he held it up for all the other fans, including the step-son, to see.

The fan step-son, named Michael, answered the question with a yes, followed by an emotional embrace. Luke Bryan then says, “That’s the coolest thing I’ve ever watched right there, y’all. Michael, you’re got a good dude standing right there behind you, buddy. That’s awesome. Congratulations, y’all.”

Luke Discusses His Public Personal Life 

In a 2015 interview with Rolling Stone, Luke Bryan discusses how public his personal life really is. “I was at my son’s scrimmage baseball, and I’m out helping coach and it’s dusty. I got dirt all over me and I look behind the backstop. There are 12 people videoing me on their cellphones. That is unfortunate.”

Luke Bryan also says that he can roll, do five flips out on the field, trip and fall and still have people taking pictures. “But it is the reality,” He explains. “But I think transparency is good for fans.”

Bryan then reveals what happened in his personal life, with the loss of his sister and brother-in-law and taking in his nieces and nephew. “Our modus operandi of all that is to help people at the end of the day,” he shares. “If they can understand they’re not alone in challenges, and if I can smile through it, may they can.”

Luke Bryan and his wife Caroline Boyer have two sons together. In 2014, Kelly’s brother unexpectedly passed away and the couple began raising their new phone Tilden “Til” and nieces Kris and Jordan. 

Luke Bryan Talks Life With Family When Not on Tour 

Luke Bryan also discusses his life when he’s not on the road. “Every day when I’m home, me and [his wife] Caroline get in bed around 10 p.m. and it looks like we have done a triathlon.” 

Luke then says that Caroline is in the “midst” of it every day, but luckily gets help from her sister and their nanny. “It’s kind of a village. But it challenges every day and you learn and learn. You try to get through it every day.”

Luke Bryan then reveals how his family tragedies have impacted his music. “That’s just been the frustrating part about my venture in music. It seems like, gosh, every time we are climbing out of something like that, the rug gets pulled out from under our family again. It’s going on 20 years.”

Luke then reflects about how his brother passed away in 1996 and then as soon as his mother was starting to heal from the loss, his sister passes away. “We feel that whole cycle. And I’ve got this music career skyrocketing through all that.”
