Oklahoma country music artist Jake Flint died unexpectedly over the weekend, just hours after his wedding.
Cline remembered Flint, a Red Dirt country singer-songwriter, as the “funniest, most hilarious, hardest working, dedicated artist I have ever worked with in my career.”
The up-and-coming musician died in his sleep after exchanging vows on Saturday. The cause of death has yet to be determined.
In a post on Facebook, Flint’s new bride, Brenda, shared a video from their wedding day, writing, “I don’t understand.”
According to his website, Flint was introduced to music after his father was diagnosed with ALS. As he was not able to physically provide interaction to his son, Flint’s dad enlisted his longtime friends to teach his boy how to play guitar. Flint began to attend regional bluegrass festivals and was inspired to write his own music.
Flint released four albums from 2016 through 2021: I’m Not Okay, Live and Not OK at Cain’s Ballroom, Jake Flint and Live and Socially Distanced at Mercury Lounge. He frequently played shows around Oklahoma and Texas.
