Potts posted a clip of the Hollywood star on Instagram, showing him on his knees while working on a tire iron. The mother of two told the outlet that her son was fast asleep while her daughter fretted.
Potts was stranded on a dangerous curve near Columbia, Tennessee, where she lives and where Bryan has hunting land. The driver’s side front tire blew out and he had to push the vehicle onto the shoulder.
Potts saw a gray truck pull up in front of her before it started to back up. It was then that the composer got out of the vehicle.
In reaction to seeing him, Potts divulged that he had to do “a double take” upon hearing his voice. At that time, she wasn’t even surprised by the first thing he said to her.
“I went out and did a double take as soon as I heard his voice. I didn’t even have time to be in shock because he was like, ‘Look, we have to get you out of this way because I almost hit you.'”
Bryan, who had his two sons in the car, advised Potts to follow him down the road, which was a short distance because he nearly collided with his vehicle going around the curve. He helped her find a spare tire in her fully occupied truck.
When the Georgia native noticed that the single mom’s tire jack was useless, he used his own. “He just dropped to the ground and started changing the tire,” Potts recalled.
Bryan’s speech only took 30 minutes, and then he happily posed for a photo with the Tennessee native, who is now a bigger fan of his than ever before:
“He’s just a humble guy. I told my mom he almost went into daddy mode. He was seriously worried about me fixing the tire on this car!”
Once fans got wind of Bryan’s good deed, they flooded Potts’ social media account to congratulate him for stepping in and helping an ordinary citizen.
One Instagram user applauded him, saying it was a blessing he was in the right place at the right time to make sure Potts and his brood got help.

“This is a true homegrown southern man. God bless you for being there at the right time to help her. And make sure her children and both of her children are safe,” the person wrote.
Another social media user called Bryan “amazing” and said it was refreshing to see “a celebrity helping an ordinary person.”
Said individual pointed out that the superstar is a rare breed and that it was evident that he was raised well by good parents while wishing the best for Bryan along with his family.
A third said the “Country Girl” singer “has a heart of gold” and is “always willing to help others,” adding that it was “one of the reasons” people love him so much.
In particular, it was not a surprise that Bryan helped a woman with two children because this was not his first time helping people.
Bryan adopted his nieces and nephew
The “American Idol” did the most selfless thing when he and his wife, Caroline Boyer, decided to raise the children of his late sister Kelly and brother-in-law Ben Cheshire after his death.
Bryan opened up about dealing with the tragedy in his life during an interview with ABC News in November 2017, Per People. His brother Chris was fatally killed in a car accident in 2000, followed by the sudden death of his sister Kelly seven years later.
It was the death of Kelly’s widower, Cheshire, in 2014 that changed Bryan’s life forever. He and Boyer adopted the couple’s three children: daughters Jord and Kris and son Til.
Boyer revealed that the decision she and her award-winning husband made was natural because they never had to reflect on it:
“We never thought twice about it. You know, it was never something he and I had to sit down and talk about. ‘Should we take this on?’ We just did that.”
Boyer and Bryan are college sweethearts. According to Us magazine, the lovebirds met in the fall of 1998 at Georgia Southern University when she was a freshman and he was a senior.
During Boyer’s appearance on the “Get Real with Caroline Hobby” podcast in January 2019, he revealed that they first bumped into each other during their “first week of college at a bar called Dingus, and we were just hanging out.”
The meeting occurred on a Thursday night; It was his first time in a bar. Boyer recalled being secretive because she grew up in a small town and had the same boyfriend since eighth grade.
She admitted that Bryan’s personality intimidated her and she couldn’t believe that he had made a move on her. “He was the second guy I kissed in my life. Never.”
Meanwhile, Bryan said that he was also intimidated by his future wife before approaching her and that he had to drink a lot before doing so, adding that he knew she was the one, and that she would be his pillar of strength:
“She is the perfect stability I need on every level.”
The couple walked down the aisle in December 2006 in Turks & Caicos. They welcomed their first child, Thomas “Bo”, two years later in March 2008.
Their second child, Tatum “Tate”, arrived in August 2010. In November 2014, Bryan and Boyer welcomed their nieces and nephew, who were then teenagers.
Bryan says adopting his nephew and nieces changed his life
According to Bryan, it was a huge adjustment to go from raising two kids to having Til come live with him and his family in Nashville:
“We’re friends now though, more or less.”
The father of five said things happened fast when it came to welcoming Til into his home, adding that being a teenager was challenging, especially giving him parenting advice.
Bryan explained that even though he wanted to be in father mode when Til got into trouble, he also “wanted to be a friend to him.”
Still, having a blended family was a positive experience for the country music singer, who said having Til in his home was “great.”
He pointed out that at the same time, he had to be a strict parent, having to monitor Til’s social media accounts while also making sure he was doing well in school.
Bryan’s main goal in raising Til as a teenager was to make sure he gave him the right guidance, studied hard, was respectful, and did everything he could to raise him right.
Reflecting on his role as the father of five children, Bryan said the experience was far greater than anything he could accomplish in his music career.
He noted that although his nephew and nieces had a good life when his parents were still alive, even after losing his mother, his goal was to help them in any way he could.
The “I See You” singer told Billboard in 2015 that it was an honor to care for his nieces and nephew, which he and his family felt was the right thing to do.
