“I’ve tried several times today to make a post, but you can’t comment on what you can’t process,” added Cline, who didn’t reveal a cause of death for the Red Dirt performer and songwriter.

According to a report in the Oklahoman, Flint died Saturday night in his sleep.

Flint’s widow, Brenda Flint, posted a video apparently taken at their wedding, reported Tulsa news radio station KRMG, that showed the singer dancing outdoors and hugging and kissing his new bride as a photographer captured the playful and tender moments. The video was captioned simply: “I don’t understand.”

In a heartbreaking follow-up post Tuesday, Brenda Flint shared the pain she was feeling.

“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,” she wrote. “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 added that he planned to continue his career, presumably referring to December 2, when Jake was scheduled to begin a string of shows in Oklahoma and Arkansas that would have lasted until May 2023.
