He was born in rural Leesburg, Georgia, United States of America to LeClaire (née Watkins) and Tommy Bryan, a peanut farmer. Shortly before he was going to move to Nashville when he was 19, a tragic event happened in his family. He stated that "My older brother, Chris, was unexpectedly killed in a ... car accident ... I'm kind of hyperventilating talking about it. ... You never truly ... move beyond it." His mother, LeClaire, had made a statement:"We knew Luke at some point would come to Nashville," his mother said. "But ... you can't leave your family, and ... I couldn't bear the thought of him being away." However, he went to college at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia where he joined the Sigma Chi fraternity and graduated in 1999 with a bachelor's degree in business administration. He finally made it to Nashville years later after his father told him to pack his truck to pursue a career in music.

His sister, Kelly died in 2007, followed by her husband Ben Lee Cheshire in 2014. Then he and his wife began raising their nephew Tilden (Til). 

He went to Nashville years later after his father told him to pack his truck to pursue a career in music. He started gaining success as a songwriter. He then signed as a performer and his first big hit came with "All My Friends Say". Once he was invited to perform at the famous Grand Ole Opry, his older sister, Kelly, organized 129 people to attend his Opry debut. However, a few days after his performance, his sister died an unfortunate death at home for unknown reasons. After he arrived in Nashville, he joined a publishing house in the city.
