Luke once revealed how his hit song "Pick It Up" perfectly explains his life as a father. "'Pick It Up' is the ultimate, ultimate father/dad song. I’m so proud of this one,” he told Rare Country. “That’s how I live my life. I try to put a lot of the things that I love around my boys. I don’t force it on them. I don’t say, 'You’re going to do this.'"

He added: "I just hand them a baseball and we start throwing it. I do a lot of things, basketball, football, fishing, hunting... and I hope that they can pick up some of this stuff and apply it to their life and be better young men from it."

Luke adopted his late sister's three kids in 2014.

In 2007, seven years after the death of Luke's brother, tragedy struck his family again with the passing of Luke's sister. At the time of her death, she left three children behind with her husband, Ben, who then passed away seven years later in 2014.

Left without parents, Luke and Caroline stepped in to take in his sister and brother-in-law's three kids: Til, who was 16 at the time, and Kris and Jordan, who were in college.

Caroline revealed in a 2017 interview with Robin Roberts that they never once doubted their decision. "We never thought twice about it,” she once shared. “You know, it was never something that he and I had to sit down and talk about. ‘Should we take this on?’ We just did that.” 

Even though it was a no-brainer for the couple, it was certainly an adjustment for them.  

“I woke up one day and I’m raising a teen. And it’s a challenge because my main thing with Til is just properly giving the right amount of advice and realizing you’re talking to someone who is becoming an adult," Luke once told People. "I have to be that parent role where if he does something, he needs to get in trouble, but I want to be a friend to him too.” 

Today, they're one big happy family of seven... and we're sure Luke and Caroline wouldn't want it any other way.
