Mindy McCready's funeral held in Florida
Family, friends gather in hometown to honour late country star
Family and friends have gathered for the funeral of country music star Mindy McCready in her Florida hometown of Fort Myers.
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 died of a self-inflicted gunshot to the head on Feb. 17, at her home in Arkansas just days after leaving a court-ordered substance abuse treatment program.
The 37-year-old mother of two died about a month after her longtime boyfriend David Wilson's death, which was also thought to be suicide, 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.
