“We should be going through wedding photos, but instead I have to pick out clothes to bury my husband in,” Brenda Flint wrote on Facebook, to announce the death of her husband Jake Flint who died at the age of 37 soon after their wedding.

Jake and Brenda married in his hometown of Oklahoma, where the ceremony was rainy but still beautiful according to friends who attended. Brenda had also uploaded a few wedding photos and a video of them dancing to social media.


“People aren’t meant to feel this much pain. My heart is gone and I really just need him to come back,” Brenda’s social media post also read.

Jake was a rising country singer known for songs like “Long Road Back Home.” He reportedly passed away in his sleep in the early hours of Sunday, and the cause of death was not announced.

His former manager Brenda Cline also wrote a tribute to Flint. “Jake was even more than [a client] to me, I loved him much like a son,” Cline wrote. “The funniest, most hilarious, hardest working, dedicated artist I’ve ever worked with in my career.

Flint released two studio albums throughout his career and was touring this year. He described his style of music as “Red Dirt” country and his social media page listed his inspiration as “everything from classic Texas Singer/Songwriters to 90’s grunge rock.”

Here’s a video of Flint performing “What’s Your Name” from his YouTube Channel.
