Metro police Release Statement on Kellie Pickler’s husband.

It has been reported that songwriter and singer Kellie Pickler’s husband, Kyle Jacobs, has passed away. He was 49.

The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department issued a statement on Friday to The Hollywood Reporter indicating that the death of Jacobs was being examined as a possible suicide. The statement was made in response to an inquiry by The Hollywood Reporter.

A 911 call led to the discovery of Jacobs’ body in the couple’s house in Nashville, where it had been there for some time, according to the police. According to the statement, “Mr. Jacobs’ wife, Kellie Pickler, said that she awoke a short time earlier, did not see her husband, and began looking for him.”

“Mr. Jacobs’ wife reported that she awoke a short time earlier, did not see her husband, and began seeking “She and her personal assistant were unable to unlock the door to the bedroom/office located upstairs, so the assistant called 911.”

Jacobs and Pickler began dating a few years after being introduced to one another by mutual acquaintances, and they eventually tied the knot in 2011. The couple was also featured in CMT’s reality show I Love Kellie Pickler, which aired for three seasons between 2015 and 2017. The show ran from 2015 till 2017.

Jacobs is credited with co-writing several hit songs, including “More Than a Memory,” which was released by Garth Brooks in 2007 and topped the charts, as well as “Still” by Tim McGraw and “Dust” by Eli Young Band.

Throughout the course of his career, Jacobs was responsible for producing a number of Lee Brice’s most successful singles, such as “I Drive Your Vehicle,” “Rumor,” “Hard to Love,” and “Drinking Class.” Trace Adkins, Jo Dee Messina, Craig Morgan, and Scotty McCreery are among of the other performers that have recorded his tunes.

On the fifth season of American Idol, Pickler was one of the contestants, and she ended up finishing in sixth place. Little Town Girl was the name of her first studio album, which was published in 2006.

She later scored a top 10 hit on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart with the song “Best Days of Your Life,” which was taken from the album of the same name that she released in 2008. Billboard reports this. In 2013, the singer issued her most recent studio album, titled The Lady I am.

In a statement that was shared with PEOPLE, the Nashville Police Department says that the Department of Emergency Communications was alerted to a home on Friday at 1:21 p.m. local time.

The songwriter was discovered “dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound” when police and the Nashville Fire Department arrived at the scene, according to the statement released by the police and the fire department.

It appears that he killed himself and the authorities are looking into that possibility.
