Country Star Mindy McCready Remembered

RIP Mindy McCready.

Friends and family of the late country singer Mindy McCready, along with artists from the music world, gathered together today in mourning at her memorial service, in Nashville, Tennessee.
McCready, who died February 17 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, had achieved considerable success in the music industry, including numerous hits on the Billboard charts, but clearly had her own personal demons. Sadly, as many career triumphs she attained, she also had many more struggles along the way which were documented in the media throughout the years, including reports of alcohol and drug abuse as well as past abusive relationships and failed suicide attempts.  
Born Malinda Gayle “Mindy” McCready in Florida in 1975, McCready moved to Nashville at age 18 in order to follow her dream of becoming a singer. After being signed by BNA Records she released her debut album Ten Thousand Angels in 1996, which sold over two million copies, and further went on to record another four studio albums.
Those in attendence at the service included old friends Bryan White, Lorrie Morgan and Bekka Bramlett who also sang at the service in memory of the late country star, whilst family members spoke of both her successes and her many struggles. The tragic suicide of her fiance, record producer David Wilson, just a month ago, appears to have been the last straw for McCready.
McCready is survived by her two children, Zander and Zayne.  She was 37.
