Luke Bryan broke the rules for a special grandma Instagram/@luke_bryan_fan_2013

Luke Bryan has one rule for his fans – no touching his butt. Yes, seriously! But when 88-year-old grandmother Frances Stanaway came backstage for a meet-and-greet in Kansas City in July, she got herself a handful of that booty, and Luke good-naturedly went right along with it.

Did we mention Frances, who lives in a local nursing home and is battling a terminal illness, was wearing a specially made sweatshirt that read, “Shake it for me, Luke” across the front? And she even showed up with gifts for the country superstar.

Following the meet-and-greet, the big country music fan got to enjoy Luke’s Sprint Center show alongside her son and daughter-in-law. Asked later by a local TV station reporter whether she thinks Luke is a good-looking guy, Frances replied, “Oh heaven, yes!”
