Luke Bryan’s Dad Gave Him a Career Ultimatum: Leave or Get Fired

Luke Bryan is one of the hottest stars in contemporary country music, but he might not have moved to Nashville to pursue his dreams if not for a push from his father.

Bryan was set to leave his native Georgia for Music City at age 19 when his older brother Chris was killed in a car accident. Feeling the need to stick close to his family, the singer enrolled in college and then went to work in his family’s peanut business. But his father knew his son wasn’t destined to work for peanuts, and gave him an ultimatum: Pack up and go to Nashville … or get fired.

That’s just one of the interesting tidbits about Bryan in the video above, an installment of the You Think You Know Country? video series from our partner site, Taste of Country. Check it out to learn the location of Bryan’s secret tattoo, his early jobs and much more about the superstar.
