Country superstar Luke Bryan knows a lot about country music. But, he just proved that he also knows a thing or two about vehicles, after recently helping out a fan who was having car trouble.

Courtney Potts of Tennessee was in a bit of a bind earlier this month when the tire on the car she was driving went flat. Potts, forced to pull over to the side of the road, waited for help, but she didn’t have to wait too long. Luckily for her, Bryan came to the rescue, as he was nearby when the issue occurred. He stopped to offer Potts some assistance and helped her get her car back out on the road.

Potts couldn’t have been more grateful for the country superstar’s support.

On her TikTok profile, @courtneypotts, she wrote, “When my tire blew in small town in Tennessee, who stopped to help? Luke Bryan. He deserves all the praise.”

Potts also included a video of Bryan lying down on the pavement and getting his hands dirty.

“I cannot thank him enough for stopping to help me and my babies,” Potts captioned alongside the clip.

Taking her gratitude even further, Potts posted another video on her Instagram page of Bryan lending a helping hand.

“Thank you again @lukebryan. I cannot thank you enough for helping me and my kids! It really made our day so much better,” Potts wrote, alongside a clip that shows Bryan removing the lug nuts from the flat tire.

Over the weekend, Bryan and his family held their 3rd annual Red Bird Games as part of the Brett Boyer Foundation. Bryan’s wife Caroline started the fundraiser following the unfortunate passing of her niece Sadie Brett Boyer, who died in 2017 from complications of Down syndrome and a congenital heart defect. Red Bird Games helps raise awareness and funds for research to find treatment options for kids suffering from congenital heart disease.

“This weekend, we were so blessed to hold the 3rd annual Red Bird Games after a long year off. It was another year of memories made and dollars raised for CHD research and Down syndrome awareness,” a caption on the brightforbrett Instagram page reads, alongside a spread of photos from the recent Red Bird Games event. “We are so grateful to everyone who participated in the event and at home with your generous donations. Our Brett was smiling down through beautiful weather and plenty of bumblebees circling the wildflowers, and our #heartwarior friends were celebrating along with us.”

Bryan will soon return to judge contestants on the upcoming season of American Idol as part of its 20th season. The “Knockin’ Boots” hitmaker will mark his fifth season as a judge, alongside co-stars Lionel Richie and Katy Perry on the long-running reality series. 

Bryan has also been tapped to host the 2021 CMA Awards. This will be his first time hosting “Country Music’s Biggest Night.” He is the show’s first solo emcee in 18 years, following Vince Gill, who hosted the CMA Awards alone from 1994-2003.

The 55th Annual CMA Awards will air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on ABC at 7 p.m. CT on Wednesday (Nov. 10).
