You can say that Luke Bryan and wife Caroline Boyer got one of the most successful and rewarding relationships in the world of country music. But just like every other couple, they too had their own fair share of ups and downs after more than two decades of being together. Yet, the couple remained strong – and they got their relationship’s rock-solid foundation to thank for!
It Was Love At First Sight For Luke
Luke Bryan – who was a senior at Georgia Southern University – first met the then-freshman Caroline Boyer “at a little bar called Dingus Magee’s in Statesboro, Georgia” back in fall 1998. And the singer fell in love hard and fast! According to Luke, it only took him eight seconds to figure out that it was Caroline whom he wanted to marry – but the problem is that he doesn’t know how to approach and talk to her.
Alcohol became Luke’s liquid courage that time, helping him take on life with an extra dose of bravery. Luke somehow eased over there and managed to be as charming as he can.
But then again, despite the singer’s bravado and confidence onstage, Luke was a little less forward as a college kid in the dating scene. Being the gentleman that he is, he was always afraid of making a girl uncomfortable that Caroline decided to make the first move by kissing Luke!
The couple dated for about a year and a half, and just when they thought things were going smoothly – life has ultimately got another plan for them.
When it was time for Luke to graduate, their relationship came to an end too! Luke and Caroline no longer find themselves on the same page – especially when Luke started talking about getting married that got Caroline freaking out. While Luke left for Nashville to pursue his dreams of becoming a country star, Caroline remained to finish her degree at Georgia Southern University.
Though they both admit that the breakup was horrible, they eventually moved on!
It Was Fate That Brought Them Back Together
Five and a half years later, Luke and Caroline found themselves in the same town and at the same time.
Luke was visiting town to perform at a small bar. Caroline, on the other hand, was in town to visit his brother, who has kept in touch with the singer and has informed her about Luke’s gig.
“I said, ‘Okay, I’ll go for like an hour.’ I saw him playing, and something was different,” revealed Caroline, 41, who has realized they’ve gotten older.
And fate really knows how to play its game when a misunderstanding has almost made it impossible for Luke and Caroline to reconcile. While taking a break in the middle of his performance, Luke saw Caroline but did not bother approaching her. Caroline assumed the singer didn’t want to see her, so she decided to go home.
But Luke knew he shouldn’t miss this opportunity – so he called Caroline’s brother, even if it’s already three in the morning, to ask why she left. And the rest was history! The two started communicating again and have stuck by each other’s side since then.
Building A Family Together
Luke eventually got down on one knee and popped the big question – romantically asking Caroline to marry him – in front of Nashville’s replica of the Parthenon. On December 8, 2006, the happy couple tied the knot in a private ceremony in Turks & Caicos.
Two years later, the country music star and Caroline were blessed with their first son, Thomas Boyer Bryan, while their second son, Tatum Christopher Bryan, followed in 2010. However, their close-knit family extended in 2014 when they took in Luke’s nephew and helped in raising his two nieces. The three children’s mother – Luke’s sister – died unexpectedly in 2007, and their father passed away seven years later, leaving the three of them with no parents.
Currently, the family is spending a lot of time together at home amid the ongoing pandemic. And on the brighter side, they’ve been entertaining fans with their hilarious antics on social media, including playing epic pranks on each other. So if you need a good laugh, you should check them out!
Clearly, despite the usual ups and downs, Luke Bryan and wife Caroline Boyer know how to come back together – and every time they do, they do it stronger and greater. The couple hopes their children would look up to their relationship and see how happy they are – after all, “that’s what a marriage should be.”
