It’s a story you’ve heard before: she started sing early in life (age 3 to be specific) and just knew it was her calling. She was a stunning beauty possessed of remarkable vocal talent, youth, intellect and personality. A combustible mix to be sure; and the stuff stars are made of.
Her debut CD, Ten Thousand Angels, rocketed to two million units sold – an unprecedented feat for a debut artist. The album spawned the Top 10 radio hits Guys Do It All The Time, Maybe He'll Notice Her Now, A Girl's Gotta Do (What A Girl's Gotta Do) and the title track.
She was the Queen of the Moment. In such heady moments wise decisions are hardly the show biz hallmark. What soon ensued was great news & bad news; exhilaration &
heartbreak; opportunity & confusion; triumph & challenge.
She opened live shows on the biggest stages imaginable: George Strait, Tim McGraw and Alan Jackson. It is the quintessential “growing up in the spotlight” story. On this stage her focus and self-confidence served her well. Big sales success and fan-adulation along with good reviews an nounced her arrival as a force to be reckoned with.
Mindy’s next three releases failed to generate the success of her first, but still managed to sell over one million copies world-wide collectively.
Her life then began spiraling downward. She had a very public abusive relationship with Billy McKnight, which resulted in several suicide attempts. She made an appearance on Oprah in 2005 to discuss this struggle. Soon after, she pled guilty to prescription drug fraud charges and was given probation. Adomestic dispute with her Mother led to her arrest and jail time. In 2008 a revelation about an affair with Roger Clemens surfaced, which resulted in almost unprecedented media coverage on all of the major media outlets, including countless stories in the New York Daily News and ESPN.
I’m Still Here represents Mindy’s first album in over 8 years. For the first time, Mindy has written emotional songs about her life and struggles. She performs tThe title track live on the finale episode of Celebrity Rehab in which everyone cries including Dr. Drew because of it’s heart-wrenching emotion, “It was the first time Dr. Drew has ever cried on the show,” says Mindy. Another song on the album, The Dance, has generated over 935,000 plays on her MySpace page, but has never been released. The album also contains newly updated versions of her biggest hits: Guys Do It All The Time and Ten Thousand Angels. The Mindy McCready is far from over.
