Luke Bryan opens up about what its like raising his nephew…


While Luke Bryan was on the Ellen show performing his new single, ‘Kick the Dust Up’, he opened up about life at the Bryan house since his nephew, Til (13 years old), came to live with them last year. Til’s father died suddenly last November, and his mother, Luke’s sister Kelly, passed away in 2007.  Luke was quick to praise his wife, Caroline, for being able to balance Til’s hectic schedule with activities of their two sons,  Bo and Tate.

Luke told Ellen, “My wife is just running around. It’s baseball, getting them to baseball.”

Both Luke and Caroline are thrilled to have Til join the immediate family, but the country superstar admits it gets tricky raising a 13-year-old boy.

“You can kind of control a seven-year-old a little bit,” Luke says. “You’re not fooling a 13-year-old.”

Luke is also stepping up his protective dad mode as Til has two older sisters who are on the dating scene, so Luke is also taking time to meet the guys to make sure they get his approval

Says Luke, “I’ve gotta do the whole ‘scare whoever the boys [are] that they’re talking to’ [thing]. I have to play that role, too.”

Always a good time seeing Luke on Ellen!
