Life has been full of ups and downs for Luke Bryan.
Not only has the country singer lost both his brother and sister in previous years, but he has now lost his brother-in-law, Ben Lee Cheshire, last Saturday.
The 46-year-old was married to Luke's sister Kelly, who passed away suddenly in 2007. So sad!
Ben leaves behind three teenagers, which is completely devastating.
The loss of his siblings has been particularly difficult for the singer, but this recent death must've hit Luke pretty hard.
The Country Girl crooner was scheduled to perform and be honored at the live showing of the CMT Artist of the Year show on Tuesday night, but decided to remain in Georgia to be with his family.
Although Luke will be absent from the show, he will still be honored, according to a CMT rep.
