What Happened in the Days Leading Up to the Catastrophe

Kyle Jacobs, Kelly Pickler’s late husband, took to Instagram this week to celebrate the success of Lee Brice’s fifth album, “Hello World,” which he produced.

“Platinum?! Sweeet!!!” The songwriter captioned the post one day before his alleged suicide on Thursday, “An excellent group of extremely creative peeps put this one together.”

“I am deeply honored to be a creative part of it.”

He said, “Thank you, Jesus!!!” before thanking everyone who helped make the album famous.
