Country music star Mindy McCready has been found dead from an apparent suicide.

The troubled singer's body was found at her home in Heber Springs, Arkansas on Sunday and reports suggest the 37 year old passed away from a self-inflicted gun shot wound, according to E! Online.

McCready's death comes just one month after her boyfriend, music producer David Wilson, was found dead from a suspected suicide in January.

Earlier this month, a judge committed the singer to a medical facility after concerned family members questioned her ability to care for her two sons, Zander, six, and nine-month-old Zayne.

Doctors released McCready a day later and she returned home to undergo 21 days of treatment as an outpatient.

McCready has endured a tough few years - she allegedly tried to take her own life in 2008 and was hospitalised after she slashed her wrists and took several pills.
