Arkansas authorities say that country singer Mindy McCready was found dead with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
A news release from the Cleburne County Sheriff's Office says that McCready, 37, was found dead Sunday afternoon with what appears to be a single, self-inflicted wound. She was found on the front porch of a home.
She arrived in Nashville in 1994 with tapes of her karaoke vocals and earned a recording contract with BNA Records.
McCready hit the top of the country charts before personal problems sidetracked her career
In 1996, her "Guys Do It All the Time" hit No. 1 and its dig at male chauvinism endeared her to females.
