Mindy McCready was found deceased on the porch of her Arkansas home from a self inflicted gunshot.
Sadly we’ve watched her unravel for a number of years in the public forum.
This is an excerpt from what was going to be a book she was working on –
“I haven’t had a hit in almost a decade,” she wrote in January 2012 on her official fan website. “I’ve spent my fortune, tarnished my public view and made myself the brunt of punch line after punch line.
“I’ve been beaten, sued, robbed, arrested, jailed, and evicted.
“But I’m still here. With a handful of people that I know and trust, a revived determination, and both middle fingers up in the air, I’m ready. I’ve been here before. I’m a fighter. I’m down, but I’ll never be out.”
I always liked her Guys Do It song and Maybe He’ll Notice Her Now – the audio below is a short remix of three of her big hits.
