Our heart and prayers go out to Luke Bryan and his family.
The country singer lost his brother-in-law, Ben Lee Cheshire, who was married to Bryan’s late sister, Kelly. He passed away on Saturday (Nov. 29), at 46-years-old.
Ben’s wife and Bryan’s sister Kelly, unexpectedly passed away in 2007. He also lost his brother, Chris in an automobile accident in 1996. Luke dedicated his song, ‘Drink a Beer,’ to his two siblings.
The Albany Herald obituary states that Ben was the owner of Southland Appraisal Service in Leesburg, Ga. The cause of death was not given. Survivors include family members, both parents and his three children.
Bryan has since canceled his upcoming ‘CMT Artists of the Year,’ TV special, which was to take place today (Dec. 2).
Our condolences go out to Luke and his family.
