Traditional Home: Country Music Star Luke Bryan's Florida Retreat

“This is a family house where they can create moments and make memories,” Chad James says. “That was the goal.”

Snowmen may be an anomaly on the beaches of Florida, but we know of at least one. Perched on a powdery stretch of sand in Santa Rosa stands country music superstar Luke Bryan and wife Caroline’s four-story beachfront home, which they named “Snowman” in honor of Luke’s late brother, Chris. The moniker references a sport Chris loved—golf—and a funny bit of slang golfers use for scoring an eight on a single hole. 

“Evidently, Chris wasn’t a great golfer,” Caroline says. “Snowman became his nickname. We named our farm Red Bird Farm after Luke’s sister and wanted to honor Chris as well.”
