Born on July 17, 1976 and raised in Leesburg, Georgia, USA to LeClaire and Tommy Bryan, Thomas Luther Bryan popularly known as Luke Bryan, a country music singer and song writer, spent most of his childhood in a farm helping his father, Tommy Bryan, who sold fertilizers and grew peanuts for a living. He attended Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia. He has been married to Caroline Bryan since December 8, 2006 and they have two children. Their first son, named Thomas Boyer Bryan, was born in 2008 and their second son, named Tatum Christopher Bryan, was born in August 2011.
Bryan, influenced by his parents' country music record collection - by the likes of George Strait, Conway Twitty, Ronnie Milsap, Alan Jackson and Merle Haggard, developed an early passion for country music. Bryan's parents were very supportive of his musical skill that when he was 14 they bought him a guitar. It was not up to a year later that he was strong enough playing on the instrument - accompanied with his singing- that he started sitting with local musicians at a club featuring live country music. At 19, after graduating from high school, Bryan planned a move to Nashville but his plans were stalled as a tragedy struck. Chris, who was Bryan's older brother, was killed in a car accident. Bryan could not leave his family in such situation. So instead of Nashville he enrolled at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia, so that he could be close to his family. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in business administration. Bryan did not give up music during his time at Georgia Southern University - where he recorded his first album - playing with a new band at night on campus and in local bars. But he buried his hope of moving forward in his music career when he chose to return home to help his father in his farming business. Bryan's father, who knew where his son's passion lied and confident of his music gift, persuaded him to move to Nashville or he would be fired.
Signed by Capitol Nashville, Bryan finally gained success when he released his debut single "All My Friends Say" in early 2007 which reached a peak of number five on the Hot Country Songs chart. And his name rose to limelight as a song writer when "Good Directions," a song he wrote for Billy Currington, went to number one on the Hot Country Songs chart in mid-2007. Capitol released Bryan's first major album "I'll Stay Me" in August 2007. Bryan ventured into the college market when he released a series of EPs "Spring Break" and "All My Friends." Quite unfortunate for him, another tragedy struck. His sister, Kelly, died a sudden death at home in 2007, with medical officials unable to determine the cause of her death.
His second album "Doin' my thing” was released in October 2009 which included two singles "Rain Is a Good Thing" and "Someone Else Calling You Baby,” which both went to number one on the country music charts. His early success led to his nomination at Academy of Country Music for Top New Male Vocalist. Both Billboard and Country Weekly tagged Bryan an “artist to watch.” Also, in 2010 "Do I" his fourth single received breakthrough video of the year award at CMT Music Awards.
On February 25, 2011, Bryan released "Spring Break 3... It's a Shore Thing," his third EP featuring four new songs: "If You Ain't Here to Party," "In Love With the Girl," "Love In a College Town," and "Shore Thing." This was followed by the release of Bryan's seventh single, "Country Girl" (Shake It for Me), which was released on March 14, 2011. The single peaked at number 4 on the country music charts and at number 22 on Billboard Hot 100. Co-written by Bryan and Davidson, it served as the first single of "Tailgates & Tanlines" his third studio album, which was released August 9, 2011. Bryan spent the whole year preparing for "Tailgates & Tanlines" which turn out to be a success as it peaked at number 1 on the Top Country Albums chart and number 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Bryan released, On March 6, 2012, his fourth EP entitled "Spring Break 4... Suntan City." His success in 2013 was bigger than that of the previous years with the release of his spring break EP "Spring Break... Here to Party” which peaked at number 1 on both Billboard 200 and Billboard's Country Albums chart. The album was released on March 5 and includes fourteen songs (twelve from his previous Spring Break EPs and two new tracks). In April 2013, Bryan released "Crash My Party" which served as the first official single of his fourth studio album, "Crash My Party," which was premiered in a performance at the 2013 ACM Awards. The song reached number 1 on the Country Airplay chart in July 2013. The second single of the album, "That's My Kind of Night," was released on August 5, 2013 and it hit number 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart in August 2013 and number 2 on the Country Airplay chart in October 2013. The third single, "Drink a Beer", was released on October 24, 2013.
On March 10, 2015, his last Spring Break album, "Spring Break...Checkin' Out," was released which includes eleven songs - six songs from the preceding year's LP and five new compositions. Bryan released his fifth studio album, "Kill the Lights," in August 2015. The album's first single, "Kick the Dust Up," released on May 19, 2015, became a chart-topping party song.
In mid-2017, Bryan released the single "Light It Up," which reached number 1 on Billboard's Country Airplay charts. It was the first single from “What Makes You Country," which arrived later in December.
Bryan was announced to perform at halftime of the 2015 Thanksgiving match-up between the Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers.
He was selected as one of the thirty artists to perform on "Forever Country", a mash-up track of "Take Me Home, Country Roads “, “I Will Always Love You" and "On the Road Again" which celebrates 50 years of the CMA Awards in 2016.
In February 2017, Bryan sang the national anthem at Super Bowl LI at NRG Stadium in Houston and was announced as the newest judge on American Idol in September the same year.
