Tragedy struck Luke Bryan's family last year when the country star's brother-in-law, Ben Lee Cheshire, died in November. ABC reported today that Bryan's 13 year-old nephew Til has now come to live with the singer's family in Nashville.

Bryan's sister (Til's mother) died in 2007; Bryan also lost his brother in a car accident. "As a family, we shake our heads, and we can't believe it," the singer told ABC. "But with me... I just have to chalk it up to... God's plan."

By taking in Til, Bryan hopes that he can set an example for other suffering families. "I pray that people that have had similar situations can maybe look at my family and see me positively dealing with it," he said. "Maybe we'll be a positive inspiration for people that had these things happen to them."
