Luke Bryan Opens Up About How Much He Cherishes Bringing the Whole Family on Tour
"That's the best feeling in the world because I get to do what I love and I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything."
Whether you're seeing him shake his hips at a sold-out amphitheater show or crack a joke on the judge's panel on American Idol, there's no denying that Luke Bryan steals our hearts in oh-so-many ways (and he makes our ears quite happy, too).
Now the country music star has partnered with Constellation Brands to create a new beer, Two Lane American Golden Lager, and is taking time to catch up with media outlets in support of the brand's launch. In one such chat with Country Living, Bryan opened up about the definition of home for him, sharing the importance of his family in what puts him most at ease on the road. "The only way to feel like you're home is to have your family around, you know, the people that you love," Bryan told reporter Kelly O' Sullivan. "The toughest part of going on the road is being away from [my family]. So when I can get my wife and my boys and nieces and nephew with me...that's home."
In addition to the two sons he shares with wife Caroline Boyer, Thomas (who goes by Bo) and Tatum, the couple also stepped in to parent to Bryan's nephew and nieces, Til, Jordan, and Kris, following the three siblings' losing both parents—Bryan's sister and brother-in-law—just a few short years apart. Bryan, who lost his own brother when he was a teenager, and a baby niece on Boyer's side of the family in 2017, knows all too well the fragility of life. Having endured such hardships, there's truly nothing sweeter for the musician than having his wife and all five of his kids on the road with him when he tours.
"That's the best feeling in the world because I get to do what I love and I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything," Bryan said.

What a sweet statement from one of our absolute favorite country artists. We can't wait to see him perform on tour this spring and summer. Until then, we'll have to raise a Two Lane in this Georgia boy's honor.
