COLUMBIA, TN (WSMV) – When you have a flat tire on a highway, you never know who might come to your rescue. For a Columbia woman, she didn’t know, a familiar face would be the one to stop to help.

The face that stopped to help belonged to country music star and this year’s CMA host Luke Bryan.

On a rural route like Campbellsville Pike, help can be difficult to find. But, for Courtney Potts, it happened when she least expected it.

“It doesn’t feel real. It sounds surreal,” Potts said. “I was going around the corner, and all of a sudden I heard ‘THUMP’ and I was like ‘this is the icing on the cake of my beautiful day.'”

Even with a flat tire, a beautiful day was about to be amazing when a large gray truck pulled over.

“When he jumped, like his voice, you automatically knew it,” Potts said. “He said, ‘Hey, we almost hit you. We have to get you out of the way.’ Then when I got back in the car I thought, I called my step dad and I thought, “Luke Bryan is here to change my tires. You should probably come. “

Video shot by Potts shows Bryan loosening the lug nuts and lifting the car up. Potts said she made sure to capture everything.


@LukeBryan, I can’t thank him enough for stopping to help me and my babies!

“You don’t want to be that kind of person,” Potts said. “But I guess at the end of the day I was. My bad.”

And like any father, she said Bryan left her with wise advice.

“When he was done changing the tire he was like, ‘Yeah, go get some new tires.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I definitely will. Can I get a picture real quick?’ “

Potts said she doesn’t recommend other girls try to pop their tires. is now with you on the go! Get the latest updates and videos, 4WARN weather forecasts, weather radar, special investigation reports, sports headlines and more from News4 Nashville.
