NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Country singer Mindy McCready is hospitalized in Tennessee after she cut her wrists and took pills in an apparent suicide attempt.

A Nashville police report says McCready's brother discovered the 33-year-old entertainer at home yesterday. Timothy McCready told police his sister had been "very intoxicated" after a night out.

A hospital spokeswoman says the singer is in stable condition. A McCready attorney did not have details. Her publicist didn't immediately comment.

McCready, who had a No. 1 hit in 1996 with "Guys Do It All the Time," struggled in recent years with legal and personal problems that included previous suicide attempts.

The singer also made headlines because of a years-long relationship she says she had with former Houston Astros pitching great Roger Clemens, who's married.

Clemens in May denied having an affair with a 15-year-old but didn't specifically address whether the person was McCready.
