Even Luke Bryan breaks his own rules sometimes!
The "Huntin', Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day" singer made an exception to his no butt-grabbing policy for Frances Stanaway, an 88-year-old terminally ill fan, prior to his concert at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri.
Stanaway was given the opportunity last week to meet Bryan through the Crossroads Hospice Gift of a Day program, along with her son, Vincent Sokolaski, and his wife, Linda.
Rocking a custom-designed "Shake It for Me, Luke!" T-shirt, Stanaway appeared to be having the time of her life as she hung out with the country crooner during a special meet and greet. And while all the photos of her and Bryan melted our hearts, the one of her going in for the butt grab was undoubtedly the highlight!
"I like the way he keeps up with his music. I like all the songs," the lucky lady later told KSHB41 Action News
. "Oh heavens, yes [he's handsome]!"
Last September, Bryan explained his "no touching" rule at meet and greets during his guest appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
"It's funny 'cause you see, like, early on in your career you don't want to tell your fans that they can't interact with you, so you let them get away with kisses on the cheek and all that," he said. "Someone will go, 'Can I grab your butt?' … and back then if it was a polite ask, we would oblige them. But then you got 90 others…"
"They'll sneak one in on ya," he added. "It still happens -- we've learned to understand it."
