Luke Bryan is one of the good ones. He’s also a creature of habit and drinks a beer during his shows.That’s why a woman in Philadelphia just wanted to drink a beer with him during a show.

Nancy North’s mom was diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis)—a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord— and is confined to a wheelchair. But that didn’t stop her from getting as close as possible to Luke during his Huntin’, Fishin’, Lovin’ Every Day Tour in Philadelphia.

The mother/daughter duo attended Luke’s show and came prepared with a homemade sign that was sure to catch the Georgia native’s eye. “I have ALS. on my bucket list is too…Drink a Beer with you,” the sign read.

Sure enough, as Luke was leaving the stage, he spotted the sign and made his way over to the woman. Luke leaned down, popped open a can of Miller Lite and handed it to Nancy’s mom. He then opened one for himself, made a toast and Nancy’s mom had her beer with Luke.

Nancy caught the bucket list moment on camera for her mom and it’s just the sweetest thing ever.

Update, we heard from Candace North:

I do feel truly blessed that he took time out to make me feel so special and alive. My gratitude toward him cannot be put into words. But I would like to get out there that not only do I thank him and his whole crew– everybody behind stage that made this possible– I also like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Bryan for raising such a kind-hearted, humble, amazing man. This is a man who his children can look up to and see how he takes his star power and changes lives and inspires us to do more and to be more free and open with people. Once again, I am so thankful that you’re able to share this I feel truly blessed and I am truly appreciative for all the support.

Candace and her family live in Cherry Hill, New Jersey and she shared that this was just the first thing on her bucket list.
