Mindy McCready’s funeral has been scheduled for Tuesday in her hometown of Fort Myers, Florida.

The funeral for the late country star will be held at Crossroads Church. A Friday news release says a Nashville memorial organised by friends and the music community is tentatively scheduled for March 6 at Cathedral of the Incarnation.

McCready committed suicide on Sunday at her home in Arkansas, days after leaving a court-ordered substance abuse treatment programme. The 37-year-old mother of two died from a single gunshot to the head about a month after her longtime boyfriend David Wilson was believed to have killed himself in the same location.
