Country singer Mindy McCready died on Sunday of an apparent self-inflicted gun shot wound. She was 37.
McCready had a string of hits on the country charts in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Her 1996 debut album Ten Thousand Angels went double platinum and spawned her biggest hit “Guys Do It All the Time”.
However, in recent years, McCready made headlines not for her music, but her alcohol, drug and various legal problems. She also alleged having a longstanding affair with former big league pitcher Roger Clemens beginning when she was a teenager. Clemens has vehemently denied the affair.
McCready has attempted suicide on several occasions. Her suicide comes only a month after the father of her second child took his own life. She leaves behind two sons aged five and ten months.
