Even though he shakes his booty every night while he's on tour, Luke Bryan is a family man. Bryan is sadly not a stranger to tragedy and in February, his family suffered yet another devastating loss.
His infant niece, Sadie Brett was just seven months old when she passed away from various health issues. Shortly after her passing, Bryan appeared at the Country Radio Seminar in Nashville, where he was scheduled to play an intimate show at the Ryman Auditorium.
He expressed his gratitude to his fans who had been sending him and his family their condolences.
“I’ll tell you what, when I’m checking my socials and see so many of you guys … that are kind of lifting my family up, I really appreciate it. It means the world to me.”
In the months since the little girl, who they call Brett, passed away, Bryan and his wife Caroline decided to dedicate one of their barns to her.
In a sweet social media post, Caroline told the world about "Brett's Barn".
"When you were about a month old, I promised you a white pony! I found you one.....along with some other adorable mini animals!" she wrote accompanying a photo of a field with a barn. "Your mom and I hijacked one of your Uncle Luke's barns and started having a little fun with it! We still have a lot of work to do, but it's coming together! 'Brett's Barn' is officially in the works. This is all for you Queen Bee. We love you to the moon and back."
Dear Brett....when your sweet Mama told me of the challenges you might face in life, I was floored when her first words were "I can't handle the thought of someone making fun of her." She never said, "Why me? Why us?" Nothing. Her words were all about you. Protecting you. Loving you with a love that only a Mother knows. Sweet Angel, you changed so many stubborn hearts that most thought were unbreakable. The first time we saw your smile was beyond amazing. You instantly became one of the greatest blessings to the the entire Boyer/Wells/Bryan family. So....to get to my point of the picture....when you were about a month old, I promised you a white pony! I found you one.....along with some other adorable mini animals! Your mom and I hijacked one of your Uncle Luke's barns and started having a little fun with it (thank you sweetie @lukebryan)! We still have a lot of work to do, but it's coming together! "Brett's Barn" is officially in the works. This is all for you Queen Bee. We love you to the moon and back. 👑🐝 #brightforbrett #brettsbarn
So far, the barn is home to an abandoned goat named Goober Goldsby, several other goats, donkeys, a pig, and miniature horses, including a white one like Caroline promised Brett!
"Hello friends!!" Meet Goober Goldsby (GG)....our first sweetie to join Brett's Barn. For some reason, GG was abandoned shortly after birth. Luckily, our dear friend @aquatroyg rescued this sweet baby and bottle fed him until he was strong enough to join our family. GG enjoys running in circles, climbing, stealing kisses, stealing cat food, and annoying the other animals! Occasionally, he escapes the barn and runs straight to our house for a visit. GG thinks it's funny to destroy my landscaping, watch the kids swim, make himself at home on the furniture, and he LOVES my brother!! Oh how we love this silly goat! ♥️🐐#brettsbarn #brightforbrett
It's so incredible the way they have chosen to honor their darling girl Brett, who is most definitely smiling down from Heaven, enjoying her barn.
