Luke Bryan’s other half, Caroline Bryan, was glammed up and walking the red carpet of the 56th Annual CMA Awards on Wednesday (Nov. 9), and now she’s in bed recovering from what she revealed to be an unforeseen procedure. 

The singer’s wife took to social media to explain that she is recovering from her hip surgery at the Bone and Joint Institute of TN. She also let her followers know that she is surrounded by great care from her family and friends. 

Her caption read, “Well…unexpected hip surgery….but I got the best care and surrounded by the most selfless friends ever!”

In the slideshow of photos she posted, Caroline first shared a photo of herself giving two thumbs up in her scrub cap and hospital gown as she prepared to head into the operating room. She also added a video showing off the decorations that were added to the walker by her bedside post-surgery, and a t-shirt she received with the hilarious phrase, “Straight Outta Hip surgery,” written on the front. These are the little things that are keeping Caroline’s spirits lifted during the recovery process. 

“Sweetest friends in the world,” she says in the video before revealing three different friends who came to lend a helping hand. 

Although the reason behind the sudden hip surgery is currently unknown, it’s clear that it was a necessary and quick turnaround.

During the recent CMA Awards show, Caroline turned heads in her cheetah print halter dress while her husband and country superstar sported a classic black suit paired with a black bowtie. Bryan served as a co-host for “Country Music’s Biggest Night” alongside former NFL player, Peyton Manning.

The 2022 CMA Awards broadcasted live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and aired on ABC (8:00-11:00 PM/ET). The star-studded event is also available for viewing on Hulu. 

In addition to hosting the show, Bryan performed his latest release, “Country On.”

“When you think about the term ‘Country On,’ it’s a statement that says a lot in those two words,” Bryan explained in an episode (Jul. 8) of Superstar Power Hour with Audacy’s Katie Neal. “From the first time I heard the first lyric, ‘Hey farm boy, keep dropping that plow,’ it really hit me. The song covers so many aspects of country living, and country life — from hard work to the American dream, to being optimistic about the future of the country and how we all must ‘Country On’ to really be one. 

He continues, “It’s got patriotism in it, it’s got honoring people that keep us free and people that keep us safe and look after us. I think that’s something the Country music crowd is always very, very appreciative of because so many in Country music are those people.”

Bryan and Caroline have been married for more than 15 years and have two children together, along with three of their nieces and nephews, who they adopted after a family tragedy.

They continue to show their support for each other through everything including performances, milestone moments, unexpected surgeries, prank wars, and everything in between.
