Luke Bryan’s new docuseries “Luke Bryan: My Dirt Road Diary” debuts August 6th on IMDb TV and it will delve into some of the tragedies Luke has gone through in his life, including the loss of his brother Chris in 1996, his older sister Kelly in 2007 and her husband Lee seven years later.
“I’ve had so many tragedies in my life,” Luke tells “People,” “it’s almost like you don’t want to tell the story because you don’t want to feel like you’re out there craving sympathy.” And while Luke has been able to triumph over all he’s endured, he admits, “You truly never get over it. You truly never settle in your mind that it’s happened. I mean, it’s always there.”
Luke says he hopes his story and his behavior over the years can “inspire people to move on from tragedy,” adding that he believes his love ones are looking after him.
“Maybe Chris and Kelly and Lee have moved some puzzle pieces around to make my life so fortunate,” he says. “When I say my prayers at night, I have to say, ‘Thank y’all for looking after us down here.'”
