The songwriter and producer boyfriend of country singer Mindy McCready has died.
According to The Boot, David Wilson died Sunday at the age of 34.
Wilson is also the father of McCready's nine-month-old son and had also become a father figure to the singer's older son from a previous relationship, Zander.
"David was my soulmate; he was a caregiver and guiding hand to our sons, Zander and Zayne," McCready wrote in a statement posted on TheBoot.com. "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."
The cause of Wilson's death was not immediately clear.
