We can’t speak for everyone, but the thought of being held by Luke Bryan when we’re upset doesn’t sound entirely awful. Definitely with wife Caroline’s approval, of course. But one little country music fan wasn’t as thrilled with the idea.

During his Nov. 3 show in Wheatland, California, Luke spotted a cuddly baby boy in the audience and quickly remarked, “I got to hold him now.”

The precious tot was quickly passed up to the stage, where the father of two little boys of his own waited with open arms. It’s hard to tell whether it was the unfamiliar journey or … well … Luke … that was upsetting, but the youngster wanted no part of what was happening to him.

Luke did all he could, hugging the precious bundle and slipping his cap back so the crowd could see all of the cuteness he cradled, but to no avail. He even used his bare hands to wipe the itty bitty nose, like any dad would do!

After planting a big kiss on the baby’s head, Luke said, “He is really pissed off right now.” And holding the mic up to the baby’s mouth confirmed that as he let out a giant wail of distress.

Of course, Luke quickly returned the heartbroken infant to a parent’s waiting hands, and even offered to get them a babysitter, which is pretty typical of the generous country star.

And reminiscent of the movie “Sweet Home Alabama”—“You have a baby … in a bar”—Luke also teased, “Who the hell brought a baby, by the way?”

Luke later told Rare Country’s Hunter Kelly, “I picked him up and he wasn’t jiving on it. He was crying pretty bad.”

This could end up as one of next year’s Rare Country Awards Fan Moments of the Year, but this year, Luke’s nomination in the Fan Moment of the Year category is with someone decidedly older!

Luke is now nominated for Fan Moment, Tour of the Year and Male Artist of the Year in the Rare Country Awards, and it’s up to you to decide the winners. Vote now at until Dec. 13. Winners will be revealed during a livestreamed concert event on Dec. 14 in Nashville.”
