Residency and other records place the couple there, and ownership records say the home was last bought in 2010 by Pickler’s manager, Julie Boos.

Officers from the police department’s West Precinct and the Nashville Fired Department rushed to the initial call, and were later followed by a detective team and officials from the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Pickler, 36, is a country music star with hit songs including Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful and Best Days of Your Life, co-written with Taylor Swift.
