Luke Bryan recently opened up about the shocking deaths of his brother, Chris, and sister, Kelly, seven years apart from each other.

In an interview with ABC News, the “American Idol” reboot judge emotionally admitted to questioning God during those difficult times. Chris passed away in 2000 following a car accident. Kelly, on the other hand, died in 2007. Seven years later, Kelly’s husband, Ben Cheshire, also passed away.

After Kelly and Ben’s three children were left with no one to look after them, Bryan and his wife, Caroline, decided to take them in. “We never thought twice about it. You know, it was never something that he and I had to sit down and talk about. ‘Should we take this?’ No, we just did that,” Caroline said.

All of a sudden, Bryan had to learn how to take care of his teen nieces and nephew. At present, they all have a wonderful relationship with each other. But this doesn’t mean the death of his siblings has already been forgotten. In fact, the country singer knows it’s something that he would always have to live it.

Caroline also suffered a more personal loss when her infant niece, Sadie Brett, passed away earlier this year. Following Sadie’s death, Bryan took to social media to thank his fans for their support and prayers.

“You keep going, and you try to, try to be as positive as you can, and you try to appreciate every day. You’ll never get back to 100 percent. You’ll always be working to get back to 75 percent,” he said.

On a happier note, Bryan is looking forward to his judging stint in ABC’s upcoming singing reality TV competition. The “Play It Again” singer was cast as second judge in “American Idol” in September. Katy Perry was the first award-winning singer to have been cast as judge in the show. She and Bryan will be joined by Lionel Richie as third judge.

“American Idol” reboot will premiere on ABC on Mar. 11, 2018. Auditions are ongoing in select cities.
