Behind Luke Bryan’s fun-loving, party-starting demeanor is a man who has experienced and lived with deep loss. He doesn’t talk about it often, but he also doesn’t hide the fact that both his sister and brother died untimely deaths leaving him behind– once the youngest and now an only child. In a vulnerable interview with “Good Morning America”, Bryan opened up about how his loss has changed him and how he continues in the legacy of his brother and sister.
“You have to honor their memory by living and you have to be a positive light,” he said.
“My brother would be mowing these fields and he would be filling up the fish feeders, then me and him would be sharing a beer as the sun goes down. It sucks that you just have to imagine that’s what we would be doing, but you have to feel good in knowing that’s what we would be doing.”
Most of the video was filmed on a gloomy day, but as soon as Bryan opened up about his brother and sister, the sun came out.
