Biography

Malinda Gayle “Mindy” McCready (born November 30, 1975, Fort Myers, Florida, died February 17, 2013) was an American country music artist. McCready began singing in church at age 3, and began seven years of formal opera training at age 9. She graduated from high school with honors in 1992 at the age of 16, with the intention of beginning an early musical career.

When she was 18, she moved to Nashville, where she was signed by BNA Records (a label of Sony BMG Music Entertainment). Her debut album, Ten Thousand Angels, was released on April 30, 1996, and was certified gold six months later. The album gave her international fame and produced her two biggest hits, “Ten Thousand Angels” and “Guys Do It All The Time”. McCready also appears with Lorrie Morgan, Sara Evans, and Martina McBride on CMT’s Girl’s Night Out special. Mindy then released the next year “If I Don’t Stay The Night.” It spawned 3 singles, “What If I Do”, Other Side Of This Kiss”, and “You’ll Never Know.” Overseas “O Romeo” was released. None were very successful. Still the album sold over 500,000 copies, and went Gold. In 1999 McCready released “I’m Not So Tough.” The first single released was “All I Want Is Everything.” When it failed to break the top 50, BNA Records and Mindy went separate ways, said to be over creative differences. After the split the album received little promotion and became a commercial failure.
