Luke Bryan Thanks Fans for Prayers After the Passing of His Niece

Luke Bryan Thanks Fans for Prayers After the Passing of His Niece

Our condolences go out to Luke and Caroline Bryan and their family after the passing of their niece, Sadie Brett Boyer, who was the daughter of Bo Boyer (Caroline’s brother) and Ellen Wells Boyer. Brett, as the baby was affectionately known, suffered from a congenital heart defect, according to Ellen’s Facebook page. 

Ellen has been updating friends and family of Baby Brett’s prognosis dating back to November 2016. As of yesterday, Brett took a turn for the worse, and her mother posted the following messages on Facebook. “Brett had declined overnight. Please-Please pray with us. Please pray for this infection to clear and for her liver to be able to work properly.”

Today (Feb. 21), Nash Country Daily has learned of Brett’s passing. Luke took to his Twitter account to thank his fans for their support, saying, “We thank all of you for your prayers. Love y’all.”

It’s another sad loss for the Bryan family. In 1996, Luke’s older brother, Chris, died in a car accident, followed by the unexpected death of his sister, Kelly, in 2007. In 2015, tragedy struck again when Luke’s brother-in-law, Ben Lee Cheshire, passed away.

NCD sends our condolences to Luke, Caroline, Bo, Ellen and the entire Bryan-Boyer family.

Luke Combs Gets 11th Number-1 with “Forever After All”

Congrats to Luke Combs – his song “Forever After All” is sitting at number-1 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart!

This is Luke’s 11th consecutive number-1 song – and the 6th track off of his deluxe album What You See Ain’t Always What You Get to capture the top spot.

After hitting number-1 Luke says, “It’s pretty crazy having this song go number-1, being the sixth number-1 off this album. It’s incredible, and it’s all thanks to the fans. We have a really great team – from management, to label, to band and crew, and we’ve been lucky that country radio has embraced us, which means the world to me. I’m forever grateful to everybody that’s helped get my songs out there. I just wanna say thanks to everybody, and I never take it for granted.”
