On Friday, the body of Kellie Pickler’s husband, composer Kyle Jacobs, was discovered at the couple’s home in Nashville, Tennessee. He was 49.
Nashville PD tells RadarOnline.com, “Nashville’s Department of Emergency Communications received a 911 call at 1:21 p.m. Friday from home on Sneed Road in the police department’s West Precinct. Officers and Nashville Fire Department personnel responded and located resident Kyle Jacobs, 49, deceased, from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in an upstairs bedroom/office. His death is being investigated as an apparent suicide.”
A police rep tells us that Kellie “awoke a short time earlier, did not see her husband, and began looking for him. After she and her assistant could not open the upstairs bedroom/office door, the assistant telephoned 911.”
According to the Daily Mail, the first publication to break the story, Kellie Jacobs and her husband, Kyle Jacobs, have been residing in the house since 2011. They have chosen not to have any children together.

Jacobs and Pickler eloped in 2011 after two and a half years of dating.
Pickler finished in sixth place on “American Idol” in 2010 and went on to release four albums. During his songwriting career, Jacobs co-wrote Garth Brooks’ No. 1 song “More Than a Memory” and Tim McGraw’s “Still.” He also produced four No. 1 country airplay singles for Lee Brice — “Hard to Love,” “I Drive Your Truck,” “Drinking Class,” and “Rumor” — in addition to collaborating with Pickler, Kelly Clarkson, Scotty McCreery, and Darius Rucker. In 2015, they starred in a CMT reality show about their relationship, titled “I Love Kellie Pickler.”
Kellie is probably best known for finishing in sixth place in the fifth season of American Idol in 2015. She is a radio personality now and can be heard on SiriusXM’s The Highway.
