Troubled country singer Mindy McCready was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound on Sunday afternoon. She was 37 years old.
Police were called to her Arkansas home and found her on the front porch.
Dateline NBC's Andrea Canning tweeted, "Just got a call from Mindy McCready's best friend that she shot and killed herself this evening. My heart breaks for her two boys. RIP."
Despite a popular country music career in the 1990s, lately McCready has made headlines ever since for one bizarre incident after another.
