Luke Bryan’s Mom, LeClaire, Arrives in Vegas

Luke Bryan’s Las Vegas residency at Resorts World Las Vegas kicked off last weekend, but the party can officially start now that his mom, LeClaire, has arrived! 

The superstar took to Instagram on Thursday evening to reveal that LeClaire is now in Sin City. 

“The eagle has landed in Vegas,” Bryan shared, alongside a photo of LeClaire enjoying a cigarette and a beer.

The following morning, LeClaire announced her arrival, and by the looks of it, she’s already up to no good. 

“Better tighten up, security on duty,” she captioned a photo of her hijacking a security desk. 

Luke’s wife, Caroline, was quick to respond to the post.

“I’m coming to bail your ass out….again,” she quipped.

LeClaire’s journey to Vegas has been a hot topic as Bryan previously joked with Good Morning America that his “credit card will be in flames” upon her arrival. 

He also laughed about her impending Vegas trip during an interview on CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown. 

“She’s already punched her ticket. She’ll be in Vegas,” the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year told host Cody Alan, before adding, “She’ll probably get fried catfish to the room. She’ll be smoking cigarettes in the room, so I’ll have to pay the no smoking charges. She’s coming to Vegas with bells on, she’s ready to rock!”

Ahead of opening night, Bryan revealed that LeClaire would be joining him in Vegas the following weekend and that he was prepared for anything.

“Yeah my mom… Gosh, I mean, my momma… she’s becoming quite the celebrity,” the Georgia native acknowledged, adding, “I guess I may have to get her a bodyguard out here.”

Bryan will likely be dishing out a few bucks to keep LeClarie busy in the casino as he said he was prepared for her to “go burn up the slots.” 

Luke Bryan: Vegas kicked off on Friday, February 11 with an explosive show featuring top-notch production elements and a career-spanning set list.
