Luke Bryan will open the CMA Awards tonight with his new song "Drink A Beer." On Nov. 5, he sat down on the "In the Spotlight with Robin Roberts," to talk about his life and also this song. Luke's mom spoke out and said this song was her favorite because it was them. It was a very touching song for them.
This song is about loss and Luke has had to deal with this in his lifetime. His older brother Chris was killed in a car accident. After this, he stayed home to be with his family. His mom said that he knew at some point he would go to Nashville but at this time he couldn't leave.
