Luke Bryan and his wife, Caroline have done it again! The couple is known for going all out with their Halloween costumes, and this year is no different.

Their previous costumes have included a mouse and cheese, Buddy the Elf outfits, inflatable dinosaur costumes, Nemo and plenty more. For their 2023 looks, the country star opted to dress up as the Little Red Riding Hood while Caroline coordinated as the Big Bad Wolf wearing grandma’s nightgown and bonnet, just like the character is described in the children’s story.

Hours before the festivities began, Caroline shared a preview of their creative looks on her Instagram story. The “Country On” singer flew around the room, embracing the fun of his red cape while his other half showed off her first layer, a body suit with added padding to give the full illusion of being a big, bad wolf.  

“Halloween at my house…poor guy is always a good sport,” she wrote in reference to her husband’s willingness to wear something fun each year. 

The completed Halloween costumes were then unveiled on the couple’s social media feeds Tuesday evening. 

“Let the Halloween shenanigans begin!!! @linabryan3,” Bryan wrote on his post alongside an image of him holding his wife over his head. 

Showing Off The Full Looks

Caroline’s post gave a more extensive look into their costumes with a reel of photos captured outside their home. Luke’s full outfit included a cape, matching red, white and black skirt, lace up corset top and cowboy boots to top it all off while Caroline held onto Little Red Riding Hood’s woven basket. Going off this year’s theme, she fittingly chose to soundtrack the post with the song “Lil’ Red Riding Hood” by Johnny Wild and the Delights. 

Her caption read, “Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Rad Wolf! Happy Halloween everyone!!! It’s always fun at our house! @lukebryan.”

Halloween took over the Bryan’s home in full force on Friday the 13th when the Georgia native shared a clip of her speed decorating in an attempt to get everything ready for the spooky holiday. Between blow up Frankenstein’s, super tall Skeletons and creepy spiders surrounding the door, they made sure to go all out with the décor.   

Returning To Co-Host The Annual CMA Awards

In just one week, Luke Bryan will reclaim his role as CMA Awards co-host alongside Pro Football Hall Of Famer Peyton Manning. The pair will take the stage for “Country Music’s Biggest Night” on Wednesday, Nov. 8 at 8 pm EST on ABC. The show will be available the following day on Hulu.


Their excitement to team up to host the star-studded event for the second consecutive year was evident in the recently released promotional video for the CMA Awards. The hilarious video showed the cohorts riding horses together and reflecting on their first time hosting the show in 2022. 

“You know, Peyton, hosting the CMA Awards with you was truly something special,” Bryan says as “On the Road Again” by Willie Nelson plays in the background. 

Manning gets a phone call that interrupts their conversation. 

“Wait a minute. You want us to host the CMA Awards again?” he says. “I got to be honest, we’re in the middle of riding off into the sunset.”

“They want us to host again?” Bryan asks. “If I turn my back on the CMA Awards, what kind of hosting icon would I be?”

“Hosting icons, plural. They called my phone,” Manning points out. 

Ultimately, they decide to give co-hosting the CMA Awards another go. 

Bryan Will Return To The Stage To Perform

In addition to co-hosting, the 47-year-old will perform a medley of his biggest hits, including “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day,” “One Margarita,” “That’s My Kind Of Night,” “Play It Again” and “Country Girl (Shake It For Me).”

Additional performers include Jelly Roll, K. Michelle, Little Big Town, Megan Moroney, Old Dominion, Carly Pearce, Chris Stapleton, Tanya Tucker and Lainey Wilson.
