Singer Mindy McCready Dies at Age 37 (Report)

Mindy McCready - P 2011

The singer died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot on Sunday.

Country music singer Mindy McCready has died at age 37, according to multiple reports.

The singer died Sunday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot, the best friend of the singer told  correspondent Andrea Canning. Her body was found on the porch at her Heber Springs, Ark., home, according to a statement from the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office to CNN.

Appearing on the network, Dr. Drew Pinsky — who stated that he treated McCready on his show for several weeks years ago — said that his sources could confirm the death.

"She is a lovely woman, we have lost her and it didn’t have to go down like this," Pinsky said. 

McCready’s boyfriend, musician David Wilson, was found dead in January. Earlier this month, she was ordered to be committed to a treatment facility.

The singer, who released her last studio album, in 2010, had issues with alcohol-abuse. She allegedly attempted suicide in 2008 and was hospitalized.  

The Cleburne County Sheriff’s office in Arkansas tells they have no information at this time.

McCready had two children, sons Zander and Zayne
