Kellie Pickler, a former American Idol competitor, awoke in her Nashville, Tennessee, home to discover that her husband, Kyle Jacobs was not in bed. After being alerted by the locked door of an upstairs room, she learned that he had committed suicide at 49.
According to the official statement from law enforcement, she called 911 after being unable to locate him. Her anxiety for his well-being was cruelly realized when first responders discovered his body inside the residence.
Kellie Pickler and her husband, Kyle Jacobs, live a private life in Nashville. She told an unnamed source that she is a straightforward woman. Her closest friends refer to her as the “Sixth Unofficial Golden Girl” because of her elderly soul nature in a 35-year-old body.
Kellie spends her free time gardening, solving Sudoku puzzles, and engaging in discussion on the porch swing with other pleasant people. The pair married in 2011, although they never had children together.
Kelly Clarkson and Tim McGraw were two well-known country music artists who got the opportunity to collaborate and write songs with Kyle Jacobs. Garth Brooks’ successful tune “More Than a Memory” reached the top of the Billboard chart in 2007, becoming Jacobs’ first number-one record.
He also received an Academy of Country Music Award in 2014 for producing Lee Brice’s 2012 hit “I Drive Your Truck.” Composing meaningful music was essential to Jacobs, as he stated on Instagram: “Creating songs with beautiful hearts in beautiful places is one of my favorite things to do as a songwriter.”
Fans have been looking for answers to explain why such an upbeat and talented person as Jacobs died unexpectedly. This proved a fruitless endeavor, as his social media posts were always pleasant and supportive.
He commented about the recent success of Lee Brice’s “Hello World” album, which he produced just a day before his death. He wrote, “Platinum?! SWEEEET!!!”
This one was created by a fantastic team of incredibly talented individuals. I’m overjoyed to have made a small contribution… Jesus, God bless you!”
Kyle Jacobs and Kellie Pickler initially met in the early 2000s. Jacobs wanted to make a good impression by introducing himself as “a songwriter.”
Nevertheless, his scheme did not go as planned, as Pickler needed to be addressed. Despite this challenging start, it wasn’t long before they began musically cooperating and eventually falling in love.
Jacobs hit a career milestone this December, earning an impressive 46 million plays and 8 million Spotify listeners for some of his creative works.
Commenting on this accomplishment, he humbly wrote: “It’s incredible how a song written in a small place on Music Row can get to so many people. I’m now feeling quite blessed… Thank you very much, Lord.”
After a protracted romance, Jacobs proposed on June 15, 2010, an event Pickler considers one of her most memorable days.
In a 2017 Instagram post, she recalled how “after Kyle got down on one knee and me joyfully exclaiming ‘Yes!’, we observed the sunset reflecting a wonderful finale to a fantastic day.”
During a modest beach wedding in Antigua, the two lovebirds exchanged vows. “When two people get married, it’s not about the glamour – it’s just between them and God,” Pickler said.
She emotionally commented that no words could honestly explain what it was like having just themselves, God, and their minister present to celebrate such a momentous occasion.
