Artist Countdown: Mindy McCready Top 20 8:30pm ET @RadioMax


Malinda Gayle “Mindy” McCready (November 30, 1975 – February 17, 2013) was an American country music singer. Active from 1995 until her death in 2013, she recorded a total of five studio albums. Her debut album, 1996’s Ten Thousand Angels, was released on BNA Records and was certified 2× Platinum by the RIAA, while 1997’s If I Don’t Stay the Night was certified Gold. 1999’s I’m Not So Tough, her final album for BNA, was less successful, and she left the label. A self-titled fourth album followed in 2002 on Capitol Records. McCready’s fifth and final studio album, I’m Still Here, was released in March 2010 on Iconic Records.

McCready’s first four studio albums accounted for twelve singles on the Billboard country singles charts. This figure includes the Number One hit “Guys Do It All the Time,” as well as the Top Ten hits “Ten Thousand Angels” and “A Girl’s Gotta Do (What a Girl’s Gotta Do).”

Although she had not charted a single since 2002, McCready received significant media coverage regarding her troubled personal life and suicide.

On February 17, 2013, neighbors called the Sheriff’s Office of Cleburne County, Arkansas, reporting gunshots. McCready was found dead on her front porch, the same place where David Wilson, her former boyfriend and the father of her younger son, had killed himself one month prior. She was 37 years old. Her death was from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. She also fatally shot the pet dog that had belonged to Wilson. Her two children remain in foster care and were not home at the time of her death. McCready is interred at Alva Cemetery in Alva, Florida.  (Source: Wikipedia)
