Oklahoma singer-songwriter Jake Flint died unexpectedly in his sleep Saturday, only hours after he was married, according to The Oklahoman.
“With a broken heart and in deep grief I must announce that Jake Flint has tragically passed away,” his manager, Brenda Cline of Route 66 Management, said late Sunday.
“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.
”Flint’s wife, Brenda Wilson Flint, posted a 30-second clip of the two taking wedding photos, and a caption that read, “I don’t understand.” The couple married Saturday at a homestead between Claremore and Owasso, Oklahoma.
A cause of death was not announced.
According to Flint’s website, the Red Dirt singer-songwriter was born in 1985, raised in Holdenville and lived in Mounds. Some of his songs included “What’s Your Name?,” “Hurry Up & Wait,” “Long Road Back Home” and “Cowtown.”
Flint recorded and released the 2018 album “Live and Not OK at Cain’s Ballroom;” 2020′s “Jake Flint;” and 2021′s “Live and Socially Distanced at Mercury Lounge.”
Mike Hosty, who played at the wedding, posted Monday a video snippet from the wedding that captures Flint singing to his new bride.
“When I got done, we all just went out to the barn, and someone had an acoustic guitar and people were passing it around. People were just singing around the campfire … and Jake sang to Brenda. And as he was singing, I go, ‘I better record this,’” Hosty said.
