It’s no secret that Luke Bryan is one of the music industry’s finest live performers. Between his dashing good looks and his perfect country voice, fans simply cannot get enough of the 41-year-old. One fan in particular has been an enormous Luke Bryan fan for years, and she recently experienced an incredibly special moment with the star.
On September 8th, Nancy North and her wheelchair-bound mother, Candace, attended Bryan’s concert in Philadelphia. Sadly, Candace suffers from a rare disease known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS. The disease is the same one that has affected Stephen Hawking and killed MLB legend Lou Gehrig. However, Candace is not going to let her condition stop her from ticking items off her bucket list.
Knowing that Luke Bryan enjoys cracking open a cold one during his shows, she and her daughter attended the show with a sign that read, “I have ALS. on my bucket list is too…Drink a Beer with you.” Before leaving the stage, Luke Bryan noticed the sign and approached the women. Bryan opened a brew and passed it to Candace. Then, Luke made her dream come true by drinking a beer with her! The fans’ reaction is absolutely priceless. Check out the special moment below…
“I do feel truly blessed that he took time out to make me feel so special and alive. My gratitude toward him cannot be put into words. But I would like to get out there that not only do I thank him and his whole crew– everybody behind stage that made this possible–I also like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Bryan for raising such a kind-hearted, humble, amazing man. This is a man who his children can look up to and see how he takes his star power and changes lives and inspires us to do more and to be more free and open with people. Once again, I am so thankful that you’re able to share this I feel truly blessed and I am truly appreciative for all the support,” Candace shared with One Country.
