Luke Bryan will once again co-host the Country Music Association Awards, this time alongside Peyton Manning, on November 8, 2023. As always, Luke’s wife, Caroline Bryan, will be there to support him. The couple, who have been together for years, are known for their love of showing off their relationship on social media. Besides being a supportive wife, Caroline is also a dedicated mother to their two sons, Thomas and Tatum, and their adoptive son, Til. Luke and Caroline first met while they were both students at Georgia Southern University in the late 90s. Luke was playing in a college band at the time and caught Caroline’s eye while she was out with her friends.
It was "love at first sight" for Luke, although Caroline initially didn’t want a relationship. They dated on and off for a year and a half, but eventually broke up due to their age difference and Luke’s demanding music career. However, they continued to keep in touch sporadically over the years. It wasn’t until they were both single that their paths finally aligned. Luke, who had already signed a record deal and was making a name for himself, was invited by Caroline to her family’s Christmas party in Atlanta.
They reunited and realized they were meant to be together. They decided to have a small wedding in Turks & Caicos with only their closest family and friends in attendance. Since then, they have been happily married. Caroline and Luke are not only parents to their two sons, but they also adopted Luke’s nephew, Til, in 2014. Til’s parents passed away, and Luke and Caroline stepped in to care for him and his older sisters, Jordan and Kris. Although they never officially adopted Jordan and Kris, they have played a significant role in their lives. Caroline is not just a stay-at-home mom. In 2017, she founded Brett’s Barn in honor of her late niece, Brett, who passed away at a young age due to Down syndrome and a congenital heart defect. The barn is home to over 20 animals and serves as a way to raise awareness for Down syndrome and congenital heart disease.
Caroline also recently launched her own clothing line called Best Bad Influence, which sells various apparel items. As Luke continues to pursue his music career, Caroline remains a constant source of support and love. She is not only his biggest fan but also his partner in life. They continue to show the world what true love looks like, both on and off the stage.
