Country Singer Mindy McCready Found Dead At 37

The 90’s country star, Mindy McCready was found dead on the porch of a house in Heber Springs, Arkansas from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. The 37 year-old singer had been struggling with a history of substance abuse and multiple suicide attempts. Just last month, the father of her youngest son, record producer David Wilson was found dead in the same town from a reported suicide shot. McCready leaves behind two young sons, one born in 2006 and the other just last year.

McCready’s debut album in 1996, Ten Thousand Angels, was certified 2x Multi-Platinum, while her 1997  If I Don’t Stay the Night was certified Gold. After her final album I’m Not So Tough was less successful in 1999 she left her label. She released a self-titled album in 2002 with Capitol Records. McCready’s four studio albums have accounted for twelve singles on the Billboard country singles charts, including the Number One hit Guys Do It All the Time“, as well as the Top Ten hits “Ten Thousand Angels” and “A Girl’s Gotta Do (What a Girl’s Gotta Do)”.

Many country music stars are speaking out with thoughtful messages. Carrie Underwood wrote, “I grew up listening to Mindy McCready… so sad for her family tonight. Many prayers are going out to them.”
