    Life was not easy for the artist. His mental health had been at stake with his prolonged battle with bipolar disorder for over six years. The family opened up to Us Weekly about the late artist’s mental illness after hearing about his death. “Unfortunately Luke suffered from the disease of mental illness, which progressed after his father’s death in 2015. Luke was supported through his disease by a community of loving family and friends. Despite this, he was unable to receive the help he needed to ease his pain. Our hearts go out to the millions of people affected by mental illness who, like us, understand the devastating disappointment of a system that consistently fails to provide caring solutions to those who suffer,” they recounted. The autopsy reports are still to be released in order to know the cause of his death.

    The 32-year-old was an artist, singer, songwriter, and musician. Though a native of Wyoming, he had moved to Nashville in order to heighten his musical career. The singer had attended college initially but dropped out in order to find his own free space. “College really wasn’t doing it for me, and I was looking for an independent platform to go learn, and music was that.” the artist told The Boot in 2016.

    With no musicians in the family, they were all skeptical about his decision. But he proved them all wrong. He bought out his first album in 2012 in Texas which was followed by Don’t Mind If I Do in 2014 and another self-titled album in 2016. The last one was a massive hit bringing him more recognition and fame. He also had the chance to tour alongside big names such as Hank Williams Jr., Willie Nelson, and Dwight Yoakam. Bell also performed frequently with his best friend and co-artist Matt Kinman. Some of Luke’s songs are Sometimes (2014), Where Ya Been (2016), Glory And Grace (2014), and All Blue (2016).
