Luke Bryan Will "Probably" Slow Down His Career, He Says

Luke Bryan has no problem keeping up with his many career responsibilities, but this has come at the expense of his personal life.

The country star and American Idol host, who has two sons and acts as guardian to his nephew and two nieces, told E! News recently that he wants to devote more time to his family.

Bryan Will "Sl0w It Down A Little Bit" Soon

Bryan has noticed that he has found it challenging to be there for important events in the lives of his sons Tatum Christopher, 12, and Thomas “Bo” Boyer, 14.

“Yesterday, I left the house. We were having an event at my house, and I ran to see three-quarters of Bo’s game, two-quarters of Tate’s game and ran back into the house to finish the event,” Bryan said, before adding, “If it’s a busy day, we’re moving and trying to get through each week, but I’ll probably slow it down a little bit as the boys get into high school and want to play even more sports.”

Bryan Makes A Real Effort To Be There

While Bryan, 46, is frequently seen with his kids on hunting or fishing trips, he misses out on important moments in their lives. This has caused him to reconsider his future.

“It’s a tremendous challenge navigating this career and everything that goes with it,” Bryan said. “You just have to make personal goals to get home and move. There are a lot of nights that I travel through the night just to try to be there one day to hang with the boys.”

His Boys Are #Blessed

Despite the sacrifices Bryan has made throughout his career, his family remains saintly about his career situation.

“The boys and our family understand that it’s a pretty amazing life we get to live because of our blessings and getting to do country music as a form of work,” Bryan admitted. “The boys appreciate it.”

And Speaking Of His Career...

Despite his comments, Bryan doesn't plan to totally scale back his career anytime soon. He will still return to judge American Idol Season 21 in 2023, and he is currently finishing his 2022 Raise Up Right Tour, which ends November 5. Shortly after, he will team up with NFL star Peyton Manning to host the 2022 CMA Awards. Bryan himself has won CMAs multiple times, including multiple wins for Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year.
