Luke Bryan Finds Himself Praying for the “American Idol” Kids

An interesting thing happened to LUKE BRYAN after he became a judge on “American Idol”.  He found himself caring deeply about the contestants . . . to the point that he worries about them.

He says,  “I didn’t realize when I signed up for this that I would lay in bed at night wondering about these kids and praying for their well-being.  Being the fatherly figure, I’ve learned there are many struggles kids are going through these days.”

He adds,  “This show has taught me a broader view of what kids are dealing with in society.  I just relish the opportunity to mentor these kids and mentor them through this crazy journey.”

It’s also helped him look inward at his own family.  Sometimes things look great . . . but maybe they’re not.

“I have my way I raise my kids, but that doesn’t mean they’re not going to have mental-health problems.  This show has taught me a broader view of what kids are dealing with in society.”
