Date:


Oklahoma Red Dirt singer-songwriter Jake Flint has died at age 37.

Jake Flint, a country singer-songwriter based in Oklahoma, died Sunday hours after his wedding. He was 37. 

Flint exchanged wedding vows with Brenda Flint Saturday during a rainy ceremony in Oklahoma. His longtime publicist Clif Doyal confirmed to The Oklahoman, part of the USA TODAY network, that the Red Dirt musician died in his sleep hours after the nuptials. The cause of death has not yet been determined. 

“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,” Doyal said. “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.”

“He was an ambassador for Oklahoma Red Dirt music.”
