We all know Luke Bryan as the chart-topping country superstar with a knack for creating upbeat anthems and rocking the stage with his infectious energy. But behind the scenes, his family has faced more than their fair share of heartbreak. In 2007, tragedy struck when Luke’s older sister, Kelly, unexpectedly passed away, leaving behind her husband, Ben Lee Cheshire, and their three children.
As if that weren’t enough, fate dealt another cruel blow in 2014 when Cheshire also passed away, leaving the kids—Jordan, Kris, and Til—without any parents. It was then that Luke and Caroline made the selfless decision to adopt their nieces and nephew, blending them seamlessly into their own loving family alongside their two sons, Tate and Bo.
The bond between Luke and his family is truly remarkable, and it’s clear that their love knows no bounds. LeClaire revealed another touching tribute they share in honor of Kelly—a matching tattoo on their wrists. What does it depict?
