Mindy McCready is a free woman. The troubled singer was released from jail in Tennessee on Sunday, but will remain on two years probation.

McCready was sentenced to a year on a probation violation after being charged in a domestic dispute in Florida. She returned to Nashville after being accused of scratching her mother in a scuffle and resisting sheriff's deputies in her hometown of Fort Myers.

McCready has struggled with legal and personal problems that included a beating by a former boyfriend and suicide attempts. She hit it big in 1996 with the Number-1 country song "Guys Do It All the Time."
