Luke Bryan is a busy guy these days, if he’s not playing a show, he’s now judging the newest crop of “American Idol” hopefuls. So, when he’s home, he wants to soak up as much family time as possible. And his mom, especially wants to soak up as much time with him as possible.
A few Christmases ago, Luke and his mom decided that they wanted to start eating chili dogs as their Christmas Eve meal. And he and his mom go shopping together for all of the ingredients.
“It’s literally, it’s her time to have with me. She has this chili recipe, she spends so much time on it. I think some of her cigarette ashes land in it… You know she’s in there, like ‘did anybody see that? Just stir it,'” Luke shared with Jimmy Fallon during “The Tonight Show.”
Luke also shared that, “the next morning, Christmas morning around the tree, you’re not happy about that chili.”
And, officially– that’s what makes Luke Bryan country.
