If any country artist is known for their dance moves, that artist would be Luke Bryan. It all started with his hit single from 2011, “Country Girl (Shake It for Me).”

“Country Girl” has always been the one song that seems to get Luke’s body moving. But over time, he’s brought his famous “shake it” moves to his performances of other songs as well.

Luke has even taken the time out of his concerts to show his fans how to shake it, just as he did during CMA Fest in 2012.

If you’ve always wondered where Luke got those smooth moves, you don’t have to wonder any longer. Are you familiar with the saying “shake what your mama gave you”? Well, as it turns out, that’s what Luke’s been doing this whole time.

Let us to introduce you to Luke’s feisty and hilarious mama, LeClaire. After the tragic deaths of both Luke’s brother and sister, Luke is now LeClaire’s only living child. As a result, she is incredibly close to him and his family.

Ever since Luke’s wife, Caroline, went public on Instagram, LeClaire has been one of the main stars of her profile. Nothing captures her personality better than this video Caroline shared of her being chased by a goose.

Thanks to Caroline, we’ve also learned that LeClaire has some serious dancing skills!

On Sunday (September 2), Caroline shared a video of who we assume to be one of her nieces and LeClaire playing tennis together. All of a sudden, the two gals decide to randomly bust a move, using their tennis rackets as makeshift guitars.

LeClarie stole the show with her dancing, and we’ve got to say, she kind of put Luke’s famous “shake it” moves to shame!

Just look at her go! She makes us want to get up and dance too!

Maybe one of these days Luke will bring his mama out on stage to show all of his fans where he learned to dance like he does. Until that day comes, enjoy his official live video for “Country Girl” below, in which there’s no shortage of dancing.
