Country singer Mindy McCready recorded a phone conversation she had with private investigator and friend Danno Hanks the day before she died, in which she discussed the experience of finding her late boyfriend David Wislon dead in his Arkansas home in January. 

Wilson, who was also the father of McCready's second child, committed suicide and was found dead oh his house porch. E! News obtained an audio clip from the singer's last recorded conversation with Hanks, who recorded many of their phone calls. In their last talk, McCready, 37, emotionally recounted the day she found Wilson dead.

"He was lying on the ground with his brains all over the floor," McCready said. "And then I held him and I kissed him and I told him I forgave him. And I said, 'David, none of this means anything. You didn't have to do this. Please, don't die. Please. We love you so much. Please don't die.' " 

During the conversation with Hanks, which McCready knew was being recorded, she said Wilson "didn't die for two hours" but that she was unable to go with him to the hospital "because they were too concerned about the f-cking GSR (gunshot residue) test, which could've taken three seconds. They could have rubbed it on my hands and I could've gone with him." 

"[They] kept me from spending two hours with him that would've been the most precious hours of my life with him," McCready added. "But he was trying to tell me something. He was grabbing me and trying to talk. Of course he couldn't talk at that point, half of his brain was on the floor."

She also talked about her two sons - Zander, 6, and 9-month-old Zayne - being placed in foster care when she entered rehab under court order. She sounded angry about it and said "then they come and take my kids after this...while we're all trying to heal and everybody's trying to get over this was the cruelest, most awful situation I've ever seen."

McCready committed suicide on Sunday.
