A songwriter from the US died suddenly hours after getting married as tributes flooded social media.
Red Dirt artist Jake Flint, an Oklahoma-based US songwriter, died suddenly on his wedding day at the age of 37.
Flint died on November 26 a few hours after marrying his wife Brenda at his remote homestead outside of Claremore, Oklahoma.
Brenda Cline of Route 66 Management confirmed the sudden death of Flint, writing: “With a broken heart and in deep grief I must announce that Jake Flint has tragically passed away.”
She added: “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. 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.”
His heartbroken new wife shared a 30-second clip of herself and Jake alongside the caption: “I don’t understand.”
CPR was administered to Flint, according to the Rogers County Sheriff’s Department, who said that while the death was still under investigation, foul play was not being considered.
