A video that went viral showing country music artist Luke Bryan assisting a woman who was raising her two young children by herself touched the hearts of his devoted audience. Bryan has been praised for his never-ending gesture of charity, which is only one of his numerous good deeds.
When country singer Luke Bryan pulled up alongside a woman named Courtney Potts who was stranded on the road with her two young children because she had a flat tire in October 2021, he offered to provide roadside assistance to the family. The incident was reported by the country music publication Taste of Country.
On Instagram, Potts shared a video clip that showed a Hollywood celebrity kneeling down and working on a tire iron. In the film, the actor was seen working on a tire iron. The woman who was a mother of two children said to the news site that her boy was sound sleeping but her daughter was becoming agitated.
Potts became lost on a perilous bend that was located close to Columbia, Tennessee, where she lives and where Bryan owns hunting acreage. Her front tire on the driver’s side burst, and she had to hobble the car over to the shoulder of the road.
Before the gray vehicle began to back up, Potts saw it pull up in front of her and then notice it again as it began to reverse. Exactly at that moment, the composer got out of the car.
Potts said that she had to give herself a “double take” after hearing his voice, which she did in response to seeing him. At that point, she was not even surprised by the first thing he said to her because of how he had approached her.
“As soon as I recognized his voice, I jumped out of the car and gave it a second thought. I hardly had time to process what had just happened when he said something the kind of “Look, we need to get you away from this road since I nearly struck you.”
Potts was given the advice by Bryan, who was driving with his two boys, to follow him up the road. However, the space between them was not very much since Bryan was so close to colliding with Potts’ vehicle as he came around the bend. He was helpful in her search for the spare tire that was hidden somewhere in the packed vehicle.
When the native of Georgia saw that the tire jack belonging to the lone parent could not be of use, he offered her his own. Potts was able to recollect that the man just got down on the ground and began replacing the tire.
The intervention by Bryan barely took half an hour, and following, he joyfully posed for a picture with the native of Tennessee, who is now an even larger admirer of him than before:
Simply said, he is a modest person. I informed my mother that he virtually assumed a fatherly role. He was really concerned about the fact that I was going to change the tire on this automobile!
When fans found out about Bryan’s kind act, they descended over Potts’ social media account to praise him for assisting a member of the general public and stepping in to aid.
An Instagram user gave him praise and called it a blessing that he was there at the right location at the right time to make sure that Potts and her children received assistance.
“This is a genuine, homegrown gentleman from the South. Bless you, for being there at the proper moment to assist her, and may God reward you for it. “And ensure that your guys, as well as her two children, were safe,” the individual who penned the message said.
A further user of social media praised Bryan, calling him “wonderful,” and stating that it was uplifting to see “a superstar helping out an ordinary everyday individual.”
The aforementioned person congratulated Bryan on his success and sent best wishes to him and his family, noting that the celebrity is a one-of-a-kind guy and that it was clear that he had been brought up properly by caring parents.
A third person said that the musician is known for the song “Country Girl” “has a heart of gold” and is “always eager to assist others.” They went on to say that this is “one of the reasons” why so many people like him.
Because this was not the first time Bryan has assisted other people, the fact that he aided a mother who was accompanied by her two young children did not come as a shock.
The “American Idol” contestant did the most unselfish thing possible when he and his wife, Caroline Boyer, made the decision to raise his late sister Kelly and brother-in-law Ben Cheshire’s children after they had both passed away.
According to People, during an interview with ABC News in November 2017, Bryan was frank about coping with the tragedy that had occurred in his life. In the year 2000, his brother Chris was murdered in a vehicle accident, and then seven years later, his sister Kelly passed away unexpectedly. Both of their losses were tragic.
The passing of Kelly’s widower Cheshire in 2014 was the event that brought about the indelible transformation in Bryan’s life. He and Boyer took custody of the couple’s three children, a male named Til and two girls named Jord and Kris.
Boyer said that the choice she and her husband, who has won several awards, made was an easy one for them to make since they did not have to give it much thought:
“We never gave it a second thought at any point. You and I never had to have a sit-down conversation about it, since it was never anything important enough to bring up. Should We Take on This Responsibility? That is exactly what we did.”
Boyer and Bryan have been dating since they were in college. According to Us Magazine, the two young people first crossed paths at Georgia Southern University in the autumn of 1998, when she was a freshman there and he was a senior.
During Boyer’s interview on the “Get Real with Caroline Hobby” podcast in January 2019, she said that they initially met while she was “hanging out at a pub named Dingus” during her first week of college.
It was a Thursday night that the encounter took place, and it was her very first time in a pub. Boyer claimed that she was shy as a result of her upbringing in a small town and had the same boyfriend since she was in the eighth grade.
She confessed that she was scared by Bryan’s demeanor, and she was unable to believe that he had made a move on her. “He was the second male in my whole life that I ever kissed. Ever.”
In the meanwhile, Bryan said that he too had been intimidated by his future wife before he contacted her, and that he had to consume a lot of alcohol in order to do so. He also shared that he was certain that she was the one for him, and that she would be his rock of support:
She is the ideal example of the steadiness that I need on all fronts.
The wedding took place in Turks and Caicos in December of 2006, and the pair went down the aisle there. Two years later, in March 2008, they were blessed with their first child, a boy they named Thomas “Bo.”
In August of 2010, they had their second son, who they named Tatum “Tate.” Bryan and Boyer took in his teenage niece and nephew in November of 2014 and raised them as their own children.
According to Bryan, the transition from parenting two children to having Til come and live with him and his family in Nashville was a significant one because of the following:
“Even so, we may call each other pals at this point.”
The father of five children described how quickly things transpired when they welcomed Til into their house. He also said that the fact that Til was a teenager was a problem, particularly when providing him with parental guidance.
Bryan noted that despite his desire to take on the role of a father when Til got into trouble, he still “wanted to be a buddy to him as well.”
Having a blended family was a wonderful experience for the country star, who described having Til as a “blast” in their living at home. Despite this, having a mixed family was a positive experience.
He pointed out that at the same time, the son had to be a strict father, needing to monitor Til’s social media accounts while also ensuring that he was doing well in school. He also had to make sure that Til did not get into any trouble.
When it came to bringing up Til as a teenager, Bryan’s key objective was to ensure that he gave him the appropriate direction, worked hard in school, was courteous, and did his best to bring him up in the correct way.
Bryan said that the experience of being a father to his five children was far more meaningful to him than anything he might achieve in his music career.
Even though his nephew and nieces had a fantastic existence while their mother was still living, he made it clear that his priority was to assist them in any way that he could, regardless of whether or not their parents were still alive.
In 2015, the singer of “I See You” said to Billboard that it was an honor for him to take care of his niece and nephew since he and his thought that it was the morally correct thing to do.
