Mindy has left behind her two sons, Zander at age 6 (her son from her former boyfriend), and Zayne at 10 months. Great misfortune has ended the life that had a full promise, and even timely success.

Apparently, the songster had been going through big battles on and off in her life, and this was not even the first suicide attempt. Her passing away has followed the death of her boyfriend, also a famous country singer, David Wilson. Wilson's cause of death was stated to be unknown, and is still going through investigation.

Mindy McCready is best known for her double-platinum album, Ten Thousand Angels. Even so at the peak of her career, her troubled personal life has landed the headlines countless times. In 2004, she was accused of drug fraud and served probation for three years. The next year, she was charged with driving under the influence and driving with a driver's license that was suspended. Despite the series of accusations she had, several others more against her. These were unlawful imprisonment, stealing identity and as well as others.

She was then rushed to the hospital after she had her first suicide attempt. On the following year, while she was pregnant to her eldest Zander, she attempted to kill herself once more by taking antidepressants. It was said that she took 30 tablets.

She went to prison two years later, for battery and resisting arrest. There were many trips to the hospital that followed shortly, and she was also in and out of rehab.

Despite the disturbed soul of Mindy, she continued to dedicate what was left of her almost dying life to her music. Her most recent  album, Still Standing, describes her demise. In one of the singles that was in the album, she sings about fighting through the storm, and still being able to stand in spite of everything. It is just sad that music wasn't enough reason for her to hold on to life.
