The American country musician has been married to Caroline Bryan for 16 years now and shares two children with her.
Ever since they got married 16 years ago, Luke Bryan and his wife Caroline Bryan have held on to each other, quite literally. A picture of the couple went viral for the quirky pose this couple strikes without realizing the potential of humor it’ll be spreading around for years to come. Speaking to PEOPLE during the annual Crash My Playa music festival in January, the country musician shared the sweet memories he cherishes to date about his wedding with his wife of 16 years.
The Drunk On You singer got married to his lover in college in 2006. "We got married in Turks and Caicos. It was a really small wedding — just close family and friends," Bryan told the outlet. "There's a photo of Caroline and I walking down the beach squeezing each other's butts that we love. It's our same personalities we have today — just so goofy," added the American country star as he shares how goofy the couple has been over the years and not an ounce has changed.

The wedding picture Bryan mentions shows the couple walking over a sea beach with their arm behind each other’s back, gripping it. "Whenever we look at our wedding album, that one always makes us laugh — it was and still is pretty funny. Great memory," confessed the 46-year-old father of two. The loving pair has two sons Bo, who is 14, and Tate who is 12 years old. Caroline also helped in raising Bryan's nephew Til and nieces Jordan and Kris due to the sudden demise of his sister Kelli in 2007 and the passing away of brother-in-law Lee Cheshire in 2014.
The American Idol judge also revealed that the wedding was almost not on the cards as he injured himself. "I tried to windsurf and I threw my back out. I had to go to a chiropractor and take a muscle relaxer to stop my back from freaking out!" he said as he was preparing to marry his college sweetheart he first met at a bar. The loving pair celebrated their “sweet sixteen” month in December as Caroline shared about it on her social media handle of Instagram.
The post is a video of the fun couple having their time together captioned, “Sweet 16!!!! Happy anniversary Love Bug…16 years ago we had zero clue what we were stepping into. The good, the bad, silly moments, and stupid arguments. It’s been worth it all and I love you more every year! ❤️ @lukebryan.” While the musician shared a hilarious picture of the two on in a costume on Instagram, which he captioned, “Happy 16th-anniversary love. It is so amazing sharing this life with you. Thank you for putting up with all the craziness I throw your way. I’ve loved you since the second I saw you. It’s truly remarkable what we’ve done together. I love you to the moon and back and here’s to 100 more. Love you.”
People loved the beautiful tributes the couple dedicated to each other. Talking about marriage and his showbiz career the Country On singer said, "We went through the learning curve of what it's like to go try to tackle this industry — we know the ups and downs and the tricky parts. And now we've settled into really enjoying all of the work it took to get to a comfortable place.”
