As she explained in the docu-series, "It's been awesome seeing him go from doing a couple of shows a week to all of a sudden, he's gone for 230 days out of the year easily. You just have to ride the ride and hang on."

My Dirt Road Diary. "I lived it and breathed it and I gave it my all. I want to be known for if you come to one of my shows, I'm going to sound like the record that you've got in your car. I'm going to be better than the last time you saw me and I'm going to be having more fun than anybody else in the room."
And even if you're not a country music fan, Luke made a case that his story is so much more than that. As he explained, "This docu-series is certainly the American dream unfolding. It shows the ups and the downs and the challenges and I hope that people can watch the roller coaster of my life and they can go, ‘You know my life's been a roller coaster too. I've got to still keep fighting and working and digging.'"
