Country singer Jake Flint died unexpectedly simply hours after his marriage ceremony, his spouse and supervisor each stated on social media.
Brenda Cline, Flint’s supervisor, wrote on Facebook, “With a broken heart and in deep grief I must announce that Jake Flint has tragically passed away.”
Cline referred to as Flint “the funniest, most hilarious, hardest working, dedicated artist I have ever worked with in my career,” including, “this is going to be incredibly difficult for so many. We love you Jake and in our hearts forever.”
Flint’s spouse, Brenda, wrote in her personal Facebook post, “We should be going through wedding photos but instead I have to pick out clothes to bury my husband in.”
“People aren’t meant to feel this much pain,” she stated. “My heart is gone and I just really need him to come back. I can’t take much more. I need him here.”
Flint was raised in Oklahoma by a “wildcat oilman and a hard-working mother of two” and had a love of music from an early age, in keeping with his website. Some of his songs included “What’s Your Name?,” “Hurry Up & Wait,” and “Cowtown.” His first studio album was launched in 2016.
