Oklahoma singer-songwriter Jake Flint dies hours after the wedding

Oklahoma singer-songwriter Jake Flint and his bride, Brenda, didn’t seem to let the damp weather dampen their spirits as they exchanged vows on Saturday at a remote house between Claremore and Owasu.

“It was raining, but he rented a 40′ x 60 circus tent… They put a bunch of carpet over the muck and then got two three-and-a-quarter-inch pieces of plywood and laid it on the floor—and that was my stage. Will that be right for you?’” said Jake. And I said, ‘Jake, that’s perfect.’ A piece of plywood or a flatbed trailer is where I shine.” Mike Hosty, who played the wedding, said.

“I still have the mud in my old truck…but it was just a fun wedding. What happened is just a tragedy.”
