Wilson was a songwriter and the father of McCready's youngest child, 9-month-old Zayne. McCready says in a statement:

He was a caregiver and guiding hand to our sons, Zander and Zayne. 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.

There are no details being released yet about the cause of death. Wilson was with McCready through a recent custody issue involving 7-year-old son Zander, which was just the latest in a long line of turbulent happenings for McCready that included drug addiction, arrests and a suicide attempt.
