Jake Flint died just hours after marrying Brenda Cline on November 26, glamsquad reports.
Jake Flint, a country music singer on the “Oklahoma Red Dirt” music scene, died in his sleep on Saturday, November 26th, just hours after his wedding. He was 37.
Clif Doyal, Flint’s publicist, told The Oklahoman that he died in his sleep but did not specify the cause of death.
“He was more than a client; he was a dear friend and a super nice guy,” Doyal said. “As evidenced by the outpouring of love on social media, he was adored by all. I think a lot of it was because he was a people person with a great sense of humor. He made everyone laugh and made everyone feel at ease.”
The Oklahoma music community expressed their condolences on social media.
On Monday, Nov. 28, his widow, Brenda Wilson, wrote on Facebook, “We should be going through wedding photos, but instead I have to pick out clothes to bury my husband in.”
“People aren’t supposed to be in this much pain,” she went on. “My heart is broken, and all I want is for him to return. I can’t take it any longer. I require his presence.”
Wilson shared video footage of their rainy day wedding in another post shortly after his death, captioning it “I don’t understand.”
Brenda Cline, Flint’s manager, took to Facebook late Sunday night to express her condolences.
She stated: “I adored him like a son. The most amusing, hilarious, hardworking, and dedicated artist I’ve ever worked with in my career.”
“We need prayers because it’s all so surreal,” she added. “Please pray for Jake’s new wife Brenda, his mother, his sister, and the rest of his family and friends. This will be extremely difficult for many people. Jake, you will always be in our hearts.”
Flint was an outspoken supporter of “Oklahoma Red Dirt” music. “What’s Your Name?” “Cowtown,” and “Long Road Back Home” were among his most popular songs.
