Country singer Mindy McCready has died of an apparent suicide at the age of 37.

Police found McCready, whose songs included "Guys Do It All the Time," dead on the porch of a house in Heber Springs, Ark.

The officer had been dispatched to the scene Sunday afternoon due to a report of gun shots.

ANALYSIS: Is Suicide Contagious?

"Ms. McCready was pronounced dead at the scene from what appears to be a single self-inflicted gunshot wound," said a statement from the Cleburne County Sheriff's Office.

The singer -- identified in the statement as Melinda Gayle McCready -- is survived by two sons, one of whom is 10 months old, CNN reported, adding that the baby's father, record producer David Wilson, died of an apparent suicide last month.

Police said an autopsy would be carried out and that "the matter will be fully investigated."
