The death of Mindy McCready has caused an outpouring of emotional responses from country artists who knew the troubled singer, as well as those who only heard her music growing up. The 37-year-old ‘Ten Thousand Angels’ hitmaker took her own life on February 17, 2013, barely one month after her boyfriend and the father to her youngest son died.

“Sleep in Heavenly peace Mindy,” Wynonna wrote late Sunday night (Feb. 17). It was one of several tweets from the country music legend, and she wasn’t alone. Country music’s biggest names came together to honor a woman who began a promising career in the mid-’90s and touched many, despite her own troubled life.
