Mindy McCready is in mourning.

The oft-troubled yet recovering country star has released a statement following the death of her "life partner" and the father of her child, songwriter and producer David Wilson, who died last night at the age of 34.

No cause of death or details surrounding his passing have been revealed, aside from the news that the death happened early Sunday evening.

"Today, we mourn the loss of my life partner and my children's father, David Wilson," McCready said in a statement. "David was my soulmate; he was a caregiver and guiding hand to our sons, Zander and Zayne."

While David is the birth father of her 9-month-old son, Zayne, her ex-boyfriend Billy McKnight is the father of her eldest, 7-year-old Zander.

"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."
