Los Angeles - A memorial service for Mindy McCready will be held in Nashville.

The 37-year-old country singer's body was discovered on the porch of her home in Arkansas on Sunday after she allegedly shot herself and friends and contemporaries will come together to celebrate her life in the coming days.

A statement from Music City News Media & Marketing said: "To complement formal family arrangements, preliminary plans are being made by Mindy's 'friends in music' to arrange a memorial in Nashville in the coming days."

Mindy's body was found after Cleburne County Sheriff's deputies responded to a report of a gunshot from the house.

Personal problems

A statement from the sheriff's department read: "Ms McCready was pronounced dead at the scene from what appears to be a single self-inflicted gunshot wound.

"At this time family members have been notified of the incident. Ms McCready will be transported to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy and the matter will be fully investigated."

While Mindy - who was mother to sons Zander, six, and 10-month-old Zayne - shot to fame with the release of her debut album Ten Thousand Angels in 1996, her music career was blighted by her personal problems, most recently the death of her long-term partner David Wilson, who shot himself in January.
