The Enduring Love Story of Luke Bryan and Caroline Boyer: A Timeline of Their Relationship

Luke Bryan, a country music singer, has been married to Caroline “Lina” Bryan for over twenty years, and the couple appears to be very much in love.

The two had an immediate connection that was impossible to deny when they first met while attending the same institution in Georgia.

Caroline said, “We were just hanging out at a bar called Dingus, and that’s where we met my first week of college.” Caroline made this revelation on the podcast “Get Real with Caroline Hobby” in January 2019. That Thursday evening. I was a new student. I had never been to a bar before. Growing up in a tiny town, I was really sheltered, and I had been with the same boyfriend since the eighth grade. I was looking at Luke and thinking, “Is this guy for real?” because of his enormous personality. I had kissed another guy before, but not this one. At all times.”

Despite dating for over a year while attending school, Luke and Caroline’s relationship ended when she “freaked out” after he discussed marriage. They wouldn’t get back together throughout their college years for another four years.

In the end, the couple got married in December 2006, just before his first album, I’ll Stay Me, was released the following year. He claimed that his success as a musician is a result of Caroline’s encouragement.

In September 2015, Luke told The Boot, “She’s the perfect kind of stability that I need on all kinds of levels.” “She lets me sleep in since she gets up at 5:30 and prepares the kids’ lunches. I look forward to the day when maybe those roles will shift a little bit because my family still truly dedicates themselves to me and makes time for me. All of this excitement will always be present. She’ll call me out when the day is over.

In 2008 and 2010, the couple welcomed their two boys, Tate and Bo, into their household. Following the untimely death of Luke’s brother-in-law from a heart attack in 2014, Luke and Caroline adopted the three children as their own.

When she was a freshman and he was a senior at Georgia Southern University, the two initially crossed paths. They were both in Dingus Magee’s, a neighborhood bar in Statesboro, Georgia, one evening. Luke quickly recognized the former pharmaceutical sales person in between his sets, and they struck up a conversation.

“It took me eight seconds to figure it out, and it took her about eight years to figure it out,” he disclosed to The Boot in February 2013. “I went to talk to her, but I had to drink a lot first. I was able to relax and seem fairly nice there for some reason. For me, it was one of those moments when I thought, “Who is that and how do I go talk to her?” Indeed, I intend to wed that girl.”

Following their initial encounter, the pair began dating and remained together for over a year.”Those blue eyes of Caroline’s were love at first sight,” Luke remarked to Good Housekeeping in December 2013. “I knew that, no matter what, I was going to make my way over to her.”


She told Hobby on the podcast episode that she “freaked out” when he would discuss marriage, which led to their final separation in 2000, which lasted for almost four years.”She was three years younger than me in college,” Luke said in a March 2012 interview with the Huffington Post. When we first met, I had almost finished my studies. She completed her college education, and I kind of went out and did my thing in Nashville, which kind of allowed us to both go get our feet a bit firmer on the ground.

Four years later, Luke and Caroline found themselves in the same tavern one evening in Statesboro, Georgia. In the podcast, Caroline revealed that at the time, she was in town visiting her brother, who told her about the “Country Girl” crooner’s performance. Together, they went to see him live. When she saw the musician again that evening, she commented that “something was different.”
