Luke Bryan Opens Up About Anxiety and the Deaths of his 3 Siblings

In a recent interview with Sunday TODAY, Luke Bryan talked about dealing with the deaths of his siblings over the years.

His older brother, Chris, died in 1996.  And his sister, Kelly, died in 2007…  But there’s more:  Kelly’s husband, Lee, died of a heart attack in 2014.

Bryan says, “When you start talking about the loss of siblings and even the loss of my brother-in-law — I mean, he was my brother; he had been in my life since I was 7, 8 years old — and the hesitancy is, gosh, you almost feel anxiety of telling aspects of your life that are so tragic.”

Luke adds, “I have to remember there are people out there that have gone through similar stuff that I have.  And so me telling my story of how we get through this as a family, you pray; and you feel like you’re going to help some people.”

During the interview, he also shared a snippet of his new song, “Songs You Never Heard,” which is about his brother – and Luke says he still gets emotional.
