Luke Bryan‘s oldest son, Bo, went from being the “alpha male” in the house to being the middle child when Luke’s 13-year-old nephew, Til, moved in with them last year. The adjustment hasn’t fazed Bo or his younger brother, Tate, though.
“It’s been amazing watching them do so well with it,” Luke tells People. “They treat Til like their brother, and Til does the same.”
Til has even helped Bo and Tate improve as athletes.
Says Luke, “When I come home, they’re throwing the baseball a little farther and hitting the ball a little harder. I know that’s ’cause Til’s been out in the yard with them.”
Til came to live with Luke and his wife, Caroline, late last year when his father, Luke’s brother-in-law Ben Cheshire, passed away. Til’s mother, Luke’s sister Kelly, died in 2007. When it comes to guiding his family through the loss, Luke leans on his faith to see him through.
“I think with everything that’s happened in my family, I just have to lean on my faith and the understanding that God has a plan for all of us. We just wake up every day and do our best.”
