Country star Mindy McCready "is recovering just fine" from an apparent suicide attempt Wednesday morning, her brother tells PEOPLE.

"Mindy's doing great. She's fine," says her younger brother Josh McCready, 28. "She was hospitalized, but she's fine. She's good now."

Reached by telephone Thursday afternoon, McCready's brother would not elaborate on what may have led to the alleged suicide attempt, but did confirm his sister is still under doctors' care.

On Oct. 31, McCready was released from a Tennessee jail after serving half of a 60-day sentence for violating probation on a 2004 drug charge. Earlier this summer she spent time in a rehab facility for undisclosed reasons.

The platinum-selling singer, 33, is being treated at a Nashville-area hospital.
