Luke Bryan is, quite possibly, one of the sweetest men out there.
Bryan, 45, walked his late sister’s daughter Jordan Cheshire down the aisle this past weekend.
Jordan is the oldest of three children. Her parents were Kelly and Lee Cheshire. Back in 2007, Kelly passed away at the young age of 39 due to undetermined causes. And then, seven years later, Kelly’s husband died of a heart attack.
Bryan and his wife, Caroline, of course, decided to raise nieces Jordan and Kris, and nephew, Til.
In a now deleted Instagram video posted by Emily Clarke Events on Monday, Bryan is seen walking Jordan toward her groom, Clint Eudy, at the Troubadour Golf and Field Club in College Grove, Tennessee.
In the new IMDb TV docu-series, Luke Bryan: My Dirt Road Diary, Bryan speaks on his past, present and future.
“If this right here,” he motions to his voice, “quit working in the morning, if I couldn’t sing again,” he tells PEOPLE, “then I am so blessed by what I’ve been able to achieve.”
In the past 25 years, and in addition to his sister, Bryan has lossed many family members. In 1996, his older brother, Chris, was killed in a car accident at age 26. Just one year before his sister Kelly would pass away and eight years before Lee would also pass on.
“I’ve had so many tragedies in my life,” says Bryan, “it’s almost like you don’t want to tell the story because you don’t want to feel like you’re out there craving sympathy.”
“You truly never get over it,” he admits to the outlet. “You truly never settle in your mind that it’s happened. I mean, it’s always there.”
“If I can inspire people to move on from tragedy, hopefully by my behavior,” he says, “that’s what life’s all about for me.”
“Maybe Chris and Kelly and Lee have moved some puzzle pieces around to make my life so fortunate,” he says of his family members. “When I say my prayers at night, I have to say, ‘Thank y’all for looking after us down here.'”
Currently, Luke is thankful for his life and all of the opportunities he has been given up to this point.
“It’s a really special place I’m in, because I don’t really feel I need to go reinvent something to complete my life as a country singer,” he says. “I’ve done everything I’ve ever wanted to do in music.”
