Oklahoma Red Dirt musician Jake Flint, age 37, died Sunday, mere hours after marrying his fiancée, Brenda. His longtime publicist Clif Doyal confirmed to The Oklahoman that the Red Dirt musician died in his sleep hours after saying his vows. Norman musician Mike Hosty had provided the reception music from a plywood stage under a circus tent as the rain came down. A few hours later, he received word that Flint had died. 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 honor, Hosty told The Oklahoman In a post on Facebook, Flint's manager wrote, […] I loved [Jake] much like a son. The funniest, most hilarious, hardest working, dedicated artist I have ever worked with in my career. Musician Dylan Stewart wrote For somebody who considers themselves a wordsmith, I sure can’t find the words. You were the greatest of pals, Jake Flint. Just the sight of your face brought the biggest of smiles to my face. I will surely miss you in this life old friend. And I will so very much look forward to finding you in the next. Tulsa-based Flint grew up in Holdenville. He took up guitar when his father was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Unable to participate in sports with his son, Flint's father commissioned a pair of friends to give his son guitar lessons. Flint released four albums and was named Breakout Artist of the Year at the We Are Tulsa Music Awards in 2019. He played the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in 2017, 2019, 2021, and 2022. The cause of death has not yet been released.
