“I’ve had panic attacks before big moments,” Luke Bryan said in an interview with ABC World News on overcoming stage fright.
The singer took the time to reflect on his triumphs and success before the CMA Awards. But despite his numerous hits and awards, Luke Bryan would have to endure two major family tragedies before seeing major success in Country Music.
Luke always wanted to be a singer, and just before his 19th birthday as he set out to Nashville to chase his dreams, his older brother Chris was unexpectedly killed in a car accident.
“You never truly move beyond it,” said Luke who at the time decided to stay home with the family and attend college instead.
It wasn’t until his father fired him from his “day job” that Luke was given the boost to head out to Nashville. He found success as a songwriter with Capital Records, and later signed as a performer.
His hit song “All My Friends Say” put him on the map.
Shortly after being invited to perform at the Grand Ole Opry, his big sister Kelly unexpectedly died at home due to unknown causes.
How has Luke been able to cope with these major losses and continue to shine through success? Watch his interview with ABC World news below.

1. You’ve always thought he was the perfect specimen of man, especially when he looked like this.
2. You kind of know this guy in that red chair, and have mixed feelings about him. Most of those feelings aren’t too positive. But you sort of find him cute anyways (sort of).
3. You respect this blonde lady over here. His wife. Even though you secretly want to be jealous of her, you know she’s actually really cool. You would definitely go shopping with her, or out hunting just to get a taste of her perfect life with Blake.
