They say behind every great man is a great woman. And it couldn’t be more true in the case of Luke Bryan and wife Caroline Boyer Bryan. Marriage is never easy, but imagine doing it with someone who is gone for weeks at a time. Having a spouse who is adored by scores of admiring fans who are more than willing to break your marriage vows. Being left alone to manage the demands of daily life while your partner enjoys the thrill of fame and nightly applause. Just who is Caroline Boyer Bryan, and how do she and Luke maintain their love and commitment in such a difficult situation?
Caroline Boyer Bryan: Love At First Sight
Wife of country star Luke Bryan, Caroline Boyer Bryan certainly couldn’t have imagined her future when she said, “I do” at the alter.
Luke and Caroline met when he was a senior at Georgia Southern University and she was a freshman. In an interview with Good Housekeeping, Luke admitted he was a goner the minute he first saw his future wife. “It was love at first sight with Caroline — those blue eyes of hers. I knew that, no matter what, I was going to make my way over to her,” he shared.
The two did briefly break up after college, but it wasn’t for long. Shortly, they were back together. They married on December 8, 2006. That was before Luke ever signed his first record deal. His debut album, I’ll Stay Me, came out in 2007. But even with a contract and an album, there was no way to know how famous he would become. It must have surpassed all of their expectations.
And in looking at that timeline, you realize that they were literally figuring out how to be married and be famous simultaneously. Neither of those is an easy task, but the two together had to be more than a little overwhelming at time. Yet the two have found a way to make it work. So what is it about Caroline Boyer Bryan that makes her such a great spouse?
