Luke Bryan To Honor Brother and Sister

9/12/2008

Luke Bryan returns home to Leesburg, Georgia, on October 5th to perform at a charity songwriter's event benefiting the Lee Branch YMCA. Luke is performing in honor of his late brother and sister, Chris Bryan and Kelly Bryan Cheshire. He says, "Since Chris' death I've been waiting for the right charity event to do, and now with Kelly's passing this event seemed like the perfect fit. It is something I can do that will honor them and, at the same time, benefit the people in my hometown, which is what I know Chris and Kelly would have wanted."

Chris died in a car accident the day that Luke was scheduled to move to Nashville originally. His sister, Kelly, died last summer. Despite the family tragedy, Luke wants brothers and sisters for his first son, Beau. He tells us, "We'll let him get up and get going and then we'll start talking about stuff like that. I mean, I know we want a big family. Get a lot of rug rats running around."
