Red Dirt Singer Songwriter Jake Flint Dies At Age 37. His manager, Brenda Cline of Route 66 Management, said late Sunday, “With a broken heart and deep grief, I must tell you that Jake Flint died in a tragic accident.”
“I loved him like he was my son. The funniest, most hilarious, hardworking, and most dedicated artist I’ve ever worked with. After he and Brenda got married yesterday, we were about to start doing business together.
“Yes-yesterday. Jake has a million friends, and I don’t know how they will all deal with Jake’s death. We need to pray because everything is so strange. Please pray for his new wife, Brenda, Jake’s sweet mother, his sister, and the rest of his family and friends.
“Flint’s wife, Brenda Wilson Flint, posted a 30-second video of the two of them taking wedding photos with the caption “I don’t get it.” On Saturday, they married on a farm between Claremore and Owasso, Oklahoma.
No reason for death was given.
The Red Dirt singer-songwriter was born in 1985, raised in Holdenville, and lived in Mounds, according to Flint’s website. “What’s Your Name?” “Hurry Up and Wait,” “Long Road Back Home,” and “Cowtown” were some of the songs he wrote.
Flint made the album “Live and Not OK at Cain’s Ballroom,” which came out in 2018. “Jake Flint,” coming out in 2020, and “Live and Socially Distanced at Mercury Lounge,” coming out in 2021.

Mike Hosty, who played at the wedding, posted a video of Flint singing to his new wife on Monday.
“When I was done, we all went to the barn, where someone had an acoustic guitar, and people passed it around. Around the campfire, everyone was singing, and Jake sang to Brenda. As he sang, I thought, “I should record this,” Hosty said.
