The Mindy McCready story is one of the more tragic in the history of country music. There have been many tragic stories but the story of a young lady who was blowing up the charts and was about to become a multi-media superstar then had it all slip away and ultimately takes her own life is as sad as it gets.

Back in 1996 Mindy introduced herself to us with the hit 'Ten Thousand Angels' and then followed it up with 'Guys Do It All the Time' and 'A Girls Gotta Do (What a Girls Gotta Do)' and was poised to be superstar. She was even talking about doing a sitcom on TV. She was about to explode. Personal problems began to take over Mindy's life and it all ended tragically when she took her own life in February of 2013.

Mindy would have been 40 years old today. It is so sad when we lose someone so early in their life. Let's remember the smiling, beautiful face and all the great music today and focus on the beauty of what she did do and not what could of been. Wish you were still here Mindy. You are remembered today.
