We already know that the world of country music is a roller-coaster ride with highs and lows, ups and downs and sometimes even some loop-do-loops that will turn your stomach inside out. This week was surely no exception. Babies, brides, brawls and broken rules seemed to dominate the headlines in country music this week, and handsome, talented Luke Bryan found himself smack dab in the middle of a couple of them.
Luke loves his fans to pieces, but the reality is, he loves his beautiful wife Caroline more. Out of respect for this bride and their marriage, he has long had a rule about fans touching his posterior. And although most women really want to sneak a pat of the body part that often steals the spotlight in his shows, they are mostly respectful of Caroline and that rule.
Yet, when 88-year-old Frances Stanaway got to meet Luke, that rule flew out the window and Caroline likely didn’t even care. This precious senior got herself a healthy handful of hiney, and it was a moment to remember.
Unfortunately, Luke was also indirectly involved with what appears to be a disagreement between a pair of fans on the front row at one of his recent shows. Whether it was a lover’s quarrel or a family fight is unknown, but when the country star tried to intervene, he was ignored. What the WHAT?!?! Luke Bryan ignored??? Thousands of women would have given anything to get that kind of attention from the superstar, but this one? Notsomuch.
