HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. - Mindy McCready, 37, who hit the top of the country charts before personal problems sidetracked her career, died Sunday.
A news release from the Cleburne County Sheriff's Office said McCready was found dead with what appeared to be a single, self-inflicted gunshot 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.
In 1996, her "Guys Do It All the Time" hit No. 1 and its dig at male chauvinism endeared her to females. Her other hits included "Ten Thousand Angels," also in 1996, and her album by that title sold two million copies.
