We’re used to seeing Luke Bryan on red carpets with his ultra hot arm candy, Caroline…but this past Monday at the American Country Countdown Awards he had an extra special guest…his recently orphaned nephew, Til.
The “Rollercoaster” singer brought along the 13-year-old, whose father, Ben Lee Cheshire, Luke’s brother-in-law, died just last month. Luke told People Magazine:
Til is my sister and my brother-in-law’s youngest, and we’re going hunting tomorrow on a trip down to south Texas, so he came into town and we dressed him up and let him have a little fun with us tonight. My wife Caroline took him shopping and got him some nice clothes and I loaned him one of my watches, so he’s having a good time.
During Luke’s acceptance speech for Male Vocalist of The Year, he got emotional when discussing how amazing the country music community has been in offering their condolences and support. It was very obvious just how much those gestures meant to him…but I can assure you this gesture he made to his nephew likewise meant the world to Til. What a very bittersweet moment for the family.
