Luke Bryan Explains What It Was Like to Take in His Sister’s Kids After She Died

By Sherene Buffa

Luke Bryan is a famous country singer + songwriter and also a judge on the popular singing competition show – American Idol. He has a very approachable, down-to-earth personality and a wildly successful career. Though, life hasn't always been easy for Luke.

His music career started in 2007 and just a short three years later he received the "Top New Artist" award from the Academy of Country Music Awards. Not too shabby. And in 2013, he received the Country Music Association Award "Entertainer of the Year." He has received numerous awards over the years and has had 14 number one hits. But, unfortunately for Luke, with all the good he has received in his life, there has also been bad.

Bryan was born in Leesburg, Georgia to peanut farmers. His plan was to move to Nashville after high school graduation to pursue a singing career, but an accident in his family halted his dream.
