Life can be very hard. Just because you are famous and seem to have it all doesn't mean that you do. Many find what they need in material things but end up empty in the heart and emotionally. Unfortunately it is not something we can see from the outside and sometimes it ends up in tragedy.
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.
The story of Mindy McCready is so sad. This was a girl who was so talented and yet was so troubled. She was on top of the world for a flash in time and then her bright light was put out way too young and way too tragically.
Country star Mindy McCready was laid to rest during a service in her hometown of Fort Myers, Fla. on Tuesday (Feb. 26), nine days after the troubled singer took her own life with a single gunshot wound to the head.
According to authorities in Heber Springs, Ark., country singer Mindy McCready's cause of death has been confirmed as suicide. Preliminary autopsy results indicate the 'Ten Thousand Angels' singer died as a result of a single self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
During one of Mindy McCready's final conversations, the singer describes finding her dying boyfriend, David Wilson, and the miserable and frantic two hours that followed. The phone call was reportedly taped one day before she died and made available on Monday night.
