Kellie Pickler’s husband, Kyle Jacobs, has died by apparent suicide at the age of 49.

Metropolitan Nashville Police spokesperson Don Aaron confirmed to The Post that Jacobs was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot at the couple’s home on Friday.

The “American Idol” alum, 36, reportedly woke up and couldn’t find her husband, according to the statement.

After Pickler and her personal assistant searched the home, they realized a door upstairs was locked.

Despite numerous attempts to get through the door, the pair called the police, who arrived at the home shortly after 1 p.m. local time.

In fact, he helped Garth Brooks write his 2007 No. 1 hit song “More Than A Memory.”

Pickler first rose to fame when she came in sixth place on “American Idol” and went on to marry Jacobs in 2011. The pair doesn’t share any children.

During their decade-long marriage, the two starred on their own CMT reality show, “I Love Kellie Pickler,” from 2015 to 2017.

Pickler has yet to speak out about her husband’s sudden passing.
