Meeting Luke Bryan is always a memorable experience, but that was especially true for a fan attending his Kansas City concert Friday (7/21).

You could say 88-year-old Frances Stanaway is a Luke Bryan superfan, and she made the most out of her pre-show backstage encounter with the singer. She’s fighting a terminal illness, but you wouldn’t know it judging by her playful manner. How playful? Take her bonafied Luke Bryan butt grab.

O my gosh I love this????????❤❤???????? lucky lady! #teamluke #lukebryan #hfetour

Luke’s backside is usually off limits as he revealed during an appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden in April. “There are quite a few wandering hands,” the superstar explained of the all-too-common backstage practice. “I’m sittin’ there doin’ the meet-and-greet, and I’m like, ‘yep, she’s got it.'” Luke’s handlers eventually had to start discouraging fans from reaching out. “That’s kind of a rule,” Luke added.

The superstar made an exception for Frances, of course. The backstage meeting was set up by Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care out of Pennsylvania, which grants end-of-life wishes for patients through its Gift Of A Day program. “Her face was just [amazing],” campaign coordinator Tracy Bunch tells ABC News. “Her eyes were probably the biggest they’ve ever gotten at that moment … It’s also all she’s been talking about the past few days.”
