Country Music Star is Buried in her Florida Home Town
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP): Family and friends have gathered for the funeral of country music star Mindy McCready in her Florida hometown.
About 200 were present Tuesday at the Crossroads Baptist Church. McCready's music played in the background and her image was shown on a large screen behind the altar.
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's death, also thought to be suicide, in the same place.
McCready hit the top of the country charts before personal problems side tracked her career.
In 1996, her "Guys Do It All the Time" hit No. 1. Her other hits included "Ten Thousand Angels."
