Lee Brice Shares Tribute to Late Friend, Songwriter, and Producer Kyle Jacobs

Lee Brice is mourning the loss of his friend and producer, Kyle Jacobs

Jacobs, the husband of Kellie Pickler, was found dead by suicide in his Nashville home last Friday.

Jacobs was a co-writer on a number of hits from Lee Brice including “Rumor” and “I Drive Your Truck.”  He also produced all but one of Brice’s albums.

Brice took to social media today to share an emotional tribute to his friend and recording partner.

These past few days have truly been some of the hardest of my life. At times, I feel lost and buried under this deep sadness. Other times, I sit and remember all the times with Kyle that bring me comfort and make me smile.

He was, without a doubt, one of the best people anyone could ever hope to have in their corner…I am eternally grateful for having him in mine. I’ll keep Kellie, his family and everyone who was touched by him close to my heart.

I’ll miss you til we meet again.. I love you, brother.

Jacobs won an ACM for his work on “I Drive Your Truck” and performed the song at a songwriter’s festival.
