Country singer tragically dies in sleep aged 37 just hours after his wedding

Country singer Jake Flint tragically passed away in his sleep on Saturday night just hours after his wedding. The Oklahoma based performer was just 37, and his cause of death is yet to be announced.

His wife Brenda Flint has been left utterly devastated by this tragedy, saying that she "doesn't understand."

Jake and Brenda had exchanged vows at a remote homestead between Claremore and Owasso just hours before his death.

Brenda shared a video of the wedding to her Facebook page, which she simply captioned: "I don't understand."

She then shared a longer tribute, writing: "We should be going through wedding photos but instead I have to pick out clothes to bury my husband in.

"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."

His manager, Brenda Cline also penned a tribute on her own Facebook page, along with a photo of herself and Jake, she wrote: "With a broken heart and in deep grief I must announce that Jake Flint has tragically passed away.

"I’ve tried several times today to make a post, but you can’t comment on what you can’t process. The photo below is when Jake and I excitedly signed our artist management contract.

"That was the beginning of a wonderful friendship and partnership. Jake was even more than that to me, I loved him much like a son. The funniest, most hilarious, hardest working, dedicated artist I haveever worked with in my career."

She continued: "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. This is going to be incredibly difficult for so many. We love you Jake and in our hearts forever."

Mike Hosty, a fellow musician, who had performed just hours before at the wedding spoke to local publication The Oklahoman, he said: "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.

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

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