Luke Bryan met his wife Caroline Boyer back when they attended Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, GA. The pair met at a local bar called Dingus Magee’s in the fall of 1998, he was a senior and she was a freshman.
Bryan explained to Good Housekeeping that he was smitten with his wife at first sight, “It was love at first sight with Caroline — those blue eyes of hers. I knew that, no matter what, I was going to make my way over to her.”
Despite how smooth Luke Bryan seems, Caroline fessed up to People magazine that she was the one who made the first move, “He was always a gentleman. We hung out as friends first and he never made a move on me. I kissed him first! He was always so scared of making a girl feel uncomfortable, he wouldn’t cross a line.”
Sadly, the college sweethearts broke up and were apart for over five year before reconnecting again in Statesboro.
“I was playing a little bar in Statesboro and she just happened to kinda be in town. We kinda saw each other and talked a little bit and then started emailing back and forth a little bit. And she was like, ‘Hey, you want to come to my family’s Christmas party?’ I went to the party and the rest is history,” recalled Luke Bryan in a Huffington Post interview.
After years of on-and-off dating, Luke and Caroline got hitched on December 8, 2006 and are still going strong despite the pressures of country music fame and intense tour schedules.
The happy couple has two sons, Thomas Boyer Bryan “Bo” born on March 18, 2008 and Tatum Christopher Bryan “Tate” born on August 11, 2010. They are also raising Luke’s sister’s son, Tilden, after both of his parents tragically passed away.
