Jake Flint, 37, a Red Dirt country singer-songwriter hailing from Oklahoma, died suddenly on November 26, just hours after his wedding.
According to the Oklahoman, Flint died in his sleep after exchanging vows with his bride.
The cause of death has not been released at this time, according to FOX 23 News.
On Sunday, Jakes long time manager Brenda Cline shared the tragic news on her social media account.
“With a broken heart and in deep grief I must announce that Jake Flint has tragically passed away,” Cline wrote.
“I’ve tried several times today to make a post, but you can’t comment on what you can’t process. The photo below is when Jake and I excitedly signed our artist management contract. That was the beginning of a wonderful friendship and partnership. Jake was even more than that to me, I loved him much like a son.
“The funniest, most hilarious, hardest working, dedicated artist I have ever worked with in my career. We were just about to embark on some business together after he and Brenda got married- which was yesterday. Yes-yesterday. Jake has a million friends and I’m not sure how everyone will cope with this tragic loss. We need prayers- it’s all so surreal.
“Please please pray for his new wife Brenda, Jake’s precious mother, his sister and the rest of his family and friends. This is going to be incredibly difficult for so many. We love you Jake and in our hearts forever,” the post concluded.
Flint’s new wife, Brenda Wilson, shared a video from their wedding day with the caption, “I don’t understand.”
On his Instagram account, Jake Flint announced that he was fully vaccinated and is “ready to make some tracks to Halifax or wherever else. Key West preferably.”
Flint’s death shocked and devastated the country music community. Several fellow musicians and fans have paid respect.
