Luke Bryan is one of the most popular American country singers. He was born on 17th July 1976 as Thomas Luther Bryan.
He started working for his musical career in 2005 after persuasion from his dad.
He began by writing songs for different artists like Travis Tritt and Billy Carrington.
Before he moved to Nashville, he used to play in local parties and underground bands.
He signed with Capitol Records and signed his first album “I’ll stay me”,and two songs from the album became super hits.
He moved on after that and did many concerts countrywide and started on another project.
Luke has so many fans across the world,and he has done so many concerts with successful albums and singles as well.
One thing that makes his songs sound so good is the fact that he writes his owns songs and at least contributes to all of the lyrics.
By doing this, he understands the sentiments and mood required on the songs no wonder his songs sound so authentic.
He has done outstanding performances in the music industry which have promoted him to being selected and nominated for many musical awards.
Despite having so many fans and living a life free if scandals, he also has some secrets he would rather keep hidden but here, we reveal them:
1. Butt Tattoo
Luke never planned on telling this to the world,but he has a tattoo in a curious place in his body.
Some people coat it and call it the rear end,but it’s in one of his butt cheeks! Jason Aldean was the first person to see the tattoo after he saw Luke scratching himself saying it was itchy.
2. He was Once an Actor
Well more like a performer than an actor.
In high school, Luke played the male lead in the play “Annie Get Your Gun”.
He wore white head to toe and rocked it complete with a fringe and a cowboy hat.
It was an ideal role for his future as a country singer.
3. Worked at a Grocery Store When He was Still a Minor
At the age of 12, Bryan wasn’t weekly handed allowances,but instead, he was learning the value of hard work.
He was busy stocking and cleaning up produce at a local grocery store in his hometown.
Who would have thought such an artist would spring from that background?
4. Initials of His Wife, Tattoo
Everyone was curious what the tattoo on his butt cheeks was and well no one could believe it.
The initials of his wife and college sweetheart.
He got in while he was on tour with Aldean and he showed him.
5. Hit by a Car in Second Grade
For most of the kids in this age, they would have been super traumatised by this.
He didn’t share the ordeal,but we came to find out that he had a run in with a moving vehicle when he was a schoolboy.
Nobody knows well how it went down but seems he got out of it safe and okay.

Thriller was the first cassette tape he owned,and he loved it so much.
He took any opportunity he could to do the Moonwalk dance which the signature dance for Michael Jackson.
