Thomas Luther “Luke” Bryan was born on July 17, 1976, in Leesburg, Georgia. Tommy was a grower of peanuts. He intended to relocate to Nashville, Tennessee when he turned nineteen. Chris, his older brother, passed away abruptly in a car accident. Instead of staying in his hometown, Bryan relocated to Statesboro, Georgia, where he attended Georgia Southern University after the family tragedy. After earning a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1999, he eventually relocated to Nashville two years later.
