The 37-year-old country singer's boyfriend David Wilson had committed suicide in his Arkansas home Sunday night.
According to The Daily Mail, the 34-year-old record producer was found in his Heber Springs home with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and was transported to the nearest hospital but died shortly after.
The sheriff's department confirmed that the police received an emergency call at approximately 6.15 Sunday night, although it was unclear who made the call.
E! reported that McCready and Wilson had a 9-month-old son, named Zayne, together.
McCready had an older son from singer Billy McKnight.
She said in a statement today, "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 truly loving and gifted man."
