Sadly, this news is not a shock.  Over the years Mindy McCready has been in the news for all the wrong reasons.  From her addictions to bizarre behavior, it was apparent that she needed serious help.  Unfortunately, she never found that help and has apparently taken her own life.

TastOfCountry.com is reporting that she has committed suicide.  “A close family friend of Mindy McCready has informed me that the country singer has committed suicide. Not confirmed with OFFICIALS. #Sad,” Nashville reporter Stacy McCloud tweeted Sunday evening (February 17).

The Fox 17 entertainment reporter added later, “The Mindy McCready suicide I told you about has now been confirmed from 4 different sources. A statement from the family is in the works.”

More information will be coming as it is made available.

RIP Mindy and may your boys grow up to know the sweet and fun Mindy that we saw storm onto the country scene with these hits.
