McCready boyfriend dies at 34

Monday, January 14, 2013 – More tragedy has come to Mindy McCready. The singer announced Monday that her boyfriend had died Sunday night.

Songwriter/producer, David Wilson, 34, of Heber Springs, Ark., died early Sunday evening. No cause of death was given.

"Today, we mourn the loss of my life partner and my children's father, David Wilson. David was my soulmate; he was a caregiver and guiding hand to our sons, Zander and Zayne. He was a precious gift from God to all of us and, yesterday, he returned home and is now with his mother and father. David loved and he was loved. Those who knew and loved him will miss him; those who did not know David, missed the opportunity to know a truely (sic) loving and gifted man."

Further information may be coming from McCready's publicist. "While arrangements are being made and Mr. Wilson laid to rest, the family appreciates utmost care and consideration of their privacy," McCready said in a statement.

Wilson was described as the singer's "life partner" and father of their two children.

McCready has had a series of problems since she had a few hit singles with Girls Do It All the Time and Ten Thousand Angels, including arrests, court cases, domestic issues and dependency problems.

On "Lovin' Your Man," McCready breaks her promise to never record a cheating song - sort of; it's actually more of a sisterly apology to the wronged wife. On "Scream," we hope we'll get to hear some of the ...
A few years ago, women were hailed as the next great thing of country with the Carpenters, Yearwoods and Hills leading the way in the heretofore male-dominated field. Like their sisters of yesteryear who also morphed from a more straightahead country beat, McCready opted for a far more glossy, pop sound with some country overtones. But her album could just as easily fit a pop or adult contemporary format. McCready made a big splash with her debut, flubbed her sophomore release and became more a ...
