Country singer Jake Flint has tragically died just hours after his wedding at age 37

The singer-songwriter's heartbroken widow says she's devastated.

Country singer Jake Flint has tragically died at the age of 37 just hours after his wedding.

The singer-songwriter from Oklahoma said 'I do' to his beloved partner Brenda last weekend.

Jake's publicist, Clif Doyal, says he then died in his sleep.

"He was not only a client, he was a dear friend and just a super nice guy. As you can see from the outpouring on social media, he was loved by everybody," he said in a statement to The Oklahoman.

"I think a lot of it was just that he was a people person, and he had an amazing sense of humor. He made everybody laugh, and he made everybody feel welcome."

His manager, Brenda Cline, added on Facebook: "With a broken heart and in deep grief I must announce that Jake Flint has tragically passed away.

"We were just about to embark on some business together after he and Brenda got married- which was yesterday. Yes-yesterday."

No cause of death has yet been revealed.

His widow, Brenda Flint, took to social media to express her heartbreak at what had happened.

"We should be going through wedding photos but instead I have to pick out clothes to bury my husband in," she said.

"People aren't meant to feel this much pain.

"My heart is gone and I just really need him to come back. I can't take much more. I need him here."

In another heartbreaking social media post, Brenda Flint uploaded photos of her and Jake on their big day.

Mike Hosty, a one-man band who played at the wedding, was shocked at how it went from what's supposed to be the happiest day of someone's life to the complete opposite.

He said Jake was an absolutely outstanding individual.

"He was a singer-songwriter, through and through, and just a big personality, a big heart, and (he'd) bend over backwards to do anything for you," he explained to The Oklahoman.

"When any musician asks you to play at their wedding, it's one of those most important days ... and it's always an honor

"I really just like remembering that happy moment of seeing them being married ... but I really feel for Brenda."

Jake had several songs chart on Texas radio and was also named as the Breakout Artist of the Year at the We Are Tulsa Music Awards in 2019.
