"Our Christmases are... they bring a lot of emotions," Bryan expressed. "A lot of wonderful memories and a lot of emotions of, 'God, we wish so many members of our family were here.' But I tell you what, we as a family, we get together and we do have a fun experience."
In 1996, when the "Play It Again" singer was 19, his brother, Chris, was killed in a car accident. Then, in 2007, his sister, Kelly, suddenly passed away. In 2014, Kelly's husband Ben -- Bryan's brother-in-law -- died, leaving the country singer and his wife, Caroline, to take care of the couple's three children. Bryan and his wife are also parents to two boys, 9-year-old Thomas and 7-year-old Tatum.
"I think I even said on [The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy] Fallon the other night, we get all our fights out hopefully on the first night. But you know, it's the all-American Christmas," Bryan explained. "We just get the family in and we let the kids open one present on Christmas Eve."
"Caroline and I were on the phone. She was a little stressed about some of the Christmas shopping. I said, 'I'm gonna get back and I'm gonna go pick out some stuff to help ol' Santa,'" Bryan continued. "It wouldn't be Christmas without getting in some traffic, you know, the holiday stress where you gotta have a beer mid-afternoon just to calm down… well, maybe a beer around noon, not mid-afternoon."
