Luke Bryan’s Ring-Finger Ink and Other Love Secrets

Right now, I’ll bet Caroline Bryan is thinking, “You can crash my party anytime, Luke Bryan.” That is, if she just read the adorably sweet story in the January issue of Good Housekeeping magazine.

In it, Bryan describes his secrets for a strong marriage. There are seven of them. And my favorite one, by far, is the tattoo one.

“We do little nights out together,” he told the magazine. “One Valentine’s Day, we got each other’s initials tattooed on our ring fingers.”

So now if you see a little “CB” on his finger, you’ll know what it stands for. Bryan also admits it was love at first sight for him because of those blue eyes of hers.

“I knew that, no matter what, I was going to make my way over to her,” he said.

His other secrets are every bit as romantic: Every night before bed, Bryan rubs his wife’s feet. Every morning, the happy couple has coffee together, and he says it’s his favorite time of day. And they always let their two sons climb into bed with them to watch TV.

And if and when they do fight, it sounds like Mr. and Mrs. Bryan keep it kind of peaceful.

“We don’t have big throw-down fights. If we have a beef, we always talk about it instead of letting it snowball,” he said.

And while this may not be romantic in a traditional candles-and-flowers kind of way, one of Bryan’s marriage secrets is, well, his secret.

“I don’t let her know how much I spend on fishing,” he said.

Now, that’s true love.
