From these two, Bryan was able to transition into the music scene slowly. The real push came in 2007 when his dad asked him to pack his bags and move from Georgia to the family home in Nashville.

Here, Bryan got signed to Nashville Records and released the first of his six music albums in 2007 called "I'll Stay Me". Kelly, Bryan's sister, was instrumental in the promotion of this album and even organized a gathering of friends for his debut several days before her demise. Among the first of his songs in his career was "All My Friends Say" which garnered him a lot of fame.

Luke Bryan's family

Bryan and Caroline met while they were still students at the Georgia Southern University. Bryan was in his final year, and Caroline was still a freshman. Bryan is known to keep his family life private and has not been rumored to have any extramarital affairs or any scandals.
