Country singer Jake Flint died unexpectedly just hours after his wedding, his wife and manager both said on social media.
Brenda Cline, Flint’s manager, wrote on Facebook, “With a broken heart and in deep grief I must announce that Jake Flint has tragically passed away.”
Cline called Flint “the funniest, most hilarious, hardest working, dedicated artist I have ever worked with in my career,” adding, “this is going to be incredibly difficult for so many. We love you Jake and in our hearts forever.” Related article: A real sign of LeBron James’ decline? 3 takeaways from Lakers’ loss to Pacers
Flint’s wife, Brenda, wrote in her own 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 said. “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, according to his website. Some of his songs included “What’s Your Name?,” “Hurry Up & Wait,” and “Cowtown.” His first studio album was released in 2016.
A cause of death was not announced.
