Kellie Pickler’s husband Kyle Jacobs has died. The musician and singer-songwriter is now 49 years old.
On Friday, a spokeswoman for the Nashville Police Department told Fox News Digital that Jacobs was found “dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot in an upstairs bedroom/office.” In response to a question from Fox News Digital, the answer was given.
“The circumstances surrounding his death suggest that he may have killed himself,” the statement says.
“Kellie Pickler, who is married to Mr. Jacobs, just got up and didn’t see him. She started looking for him right away. She told Mr. Jacobs’ office about this. She and her personal assistant couldn’t open the door to the upstairs bedroom/office, so the assistant called 911 to let them know what was going on “the part at the end of the sentence.
After dating for almost a year and a half, Pickler and Jacobs told everyone in 2010 that they were going to get married. They got married in a ceremony that was thrown together quickly on the first day of 2011. Pickler took part in season 5 of “American Idol” in 2010 and came in sixth.
In 2000, Jacobs travelled from Minneapolis, Minnesota, to Nashville, Tennessee. The hit song “8th World Wonder,” which came out in 2004, was written by Jacobs and Kimberly Locke, who used to be on “American Idol.”
After that, he worked with Garth Brooks on the song “More Than A Memory,” which came out in 2007 and was the first single in the history of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart to start at number one.
He also wrote songs that were recorded by artists like Kellie Pickler, George Strait, Kelly Clarkson, Clay Walker, Randy Travis, Scott McCreery, Josh Kelley, Jo Dee Messina, and Craig Morgan. Jacobs worked on two songs, “Back Home” and “Already Gone,” which were both performed on the ABC musical drama series “Nashville.”
Jacobs also did well as a record producer in the music business. He is the man behind Lee Brice’s three number one singles, “Hard to Love,” “I Drive Your Truck,” and “Drinking Class,” all of which came out in 2012.
Jacobs and his wife Kellie Pickler both appeared on the CMT reality show “I Love Kellie Pickler,” which ran for three seasons from 2015 to 2017.
Jacobs helped make Brice’s “Hello World” album, which came out in the year 2020. In his most recent Instagram post, he talked about how happy he was that the RIAA had given the record platinum certification on Thursday.
He posted a picture of the album’s cover with the following caption: “Platinum?! SWEEEET!!! This one was put together by a group of very creative people who are amazing… I feel very lucky to have had a hand in making it. Thank you Jesus!!!”
