Caroline sat down with Jay for nearly one hour as she detailed her Georgia upbringing, her massive Instagram following and how she navigates being a parent in the age of social media.
“I’m very hands on. I’m very strict,” Caroline revealed of her parenting style. “I yell at everything. I yell because I care.”
During their conversation, Caroline also shared how she feels about being married to Luke, who Cutler deemed a “sex symbol.”
“I’m used to it. I mean, I don’t think about it,” she admitted.
Laughing, she later quipped, “I mean, Luke’s ass and his ass shaking has made us a lot of money.”

In all seriousness, Caroline acknowledged that the women swooning over Luke “comes with the territory.”
“But I mean, I‘m not worried about it,” she confessed. “As long as they’re respectful, then whatever. We’ll go with it.”
When asked if she’s ever had to confront women who have crossed the line, Caroline admitted she has.
“There‘s only been a couple. Just don’t touch, don’t grab,” she warned.
Luke, a five-time Entertainer of the Year, has become known for his hip thrusting and on-stage booty shaking, which prompted his team to enforce a new rule during his meet and greets.
“Let’s talk about your meet and greets,” Ellen DeGeneres said to Luke in 2016. “There are rules that you’ve had to enforce…No one can touch your butt?”
“They’ll sneak one in on ya. It still happens – we’ve learned to understand it,” Luke told her at the time.
He later admitted that things were different when he first started out.
“It’s funny ’cause you see, like early on in your career, you don’t want to tell your fans that they can’t interact with you, so you let them get away with kisses on the cheek and all that,” the country singer explained. “Someone will go, ‘Can I grab your butt?’ … and back then if it was a polite ask, we would oblige them. But then you got 90 others…”
He laughed, “It’s country music. We make the fans happy.”
