McCready (AP)
Mindy Mccready's Funeral Held In Southwest Florida
Posted: February 26, 2013
FORT MYERS, FL (AP) -- Mindy McCready's funeral is being held in her hometown of Fort Myers.

The funeral for the late country star will be at Tuesday at Crossroads Baptist Church. A memorial is scheduled in Nashville next month.

McCready committed suicide Feb. 17 at her home in Arkansas, days after leaving a court-ordered substance abuse treatment program. The 37-year-old mother of two died from a single gunshot to the head about a month after her longtime boyfriend David Wilson was believed to have killed himself in the same location.

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. Her other hits included "Ten Thousand Angels" and her album by that title sold 2 million copies.
