Country Star Mindy McCready Dies: A Look Back At Her Most Stunning Moments


6169_1112943271904_3961237_nIn very sad news, country music star Mindy McCready has passed away. Her life was cut short when she apparently shot herself and her dog while at home in Herber Springs, Ark. on Sunday morning. The former Nashville starlet left behind two young children Zander, 6, and Zayne, 9-months-old.

While there was no doubt that there was a lot of trouble in Mindy’s life, things recently went from bad to worse when her boyfriend and the father of her infant son Zayne, David Wilson died just last month at the age of 34. No details of his death have been released and it is still under investigation.

Born Malinda Gayle McCready in Fort Myers, Florida, McCready began singing in church at age 3, and graduated from high school at the age of 16 with the intention of beginning her music career early.  When she was 18, she moved to Nashville, where she was signed by BNA Records. Her debut album, Ten Thousand Angels, was released in 1996 and sold two million copies.

Our condolences go to both Mindy’s family and her fans. Take a look at our photo gallery of some of Mindy’s most stunning photos from the past few years and let us know your comments. There is no doubt that the Nashville community has lost one of its most precious angels.
