Luke Bryan is revealing how he came to terms with brother’s sudden death in an unbelievable tell-all, RadarOnline.com has learned.

The country crooner, 40, told TODAY host Willie Geist that he was just 19-years-old when his brother Chris died in a car accident — and he had to push through the pain to achieve his success.

“It just totally rocked our family's world, rocked my world,” he confessed. “It makes you appreciate chasing dreams, you know. You're like, hey you get one go-round at this thing called life and it's very fragile, so you better go after your dreams.”

Kelly died suddenly in 2007, and her widow, Ben Lee Cheshire, died seven years later. Luke and his wife Caroline have been raising their son, Til, as their own ever since.

He opened up in a 20/20 interview about the deaths, saying: "My only older siblings ... gone from the world, in a flash in two, two different, crazy, tragic manners, that ... we'll never know, and never understand."

Luke is now a mentor for Team Blake on The Voice, with Blake Shelton as he tries to best girlfriend, Gwen Stefani.
