Malinda Gayle "Mindy" McCready (born November 30, 1975) is an American country music singer. Active since 1996, she has recorded a total of four studio albums. Her debut album, 1996's Ten Thousand Angels, was released on BNA Records and was certified 2× Multi-Platinum by the RIAA, while 1997's If I Don't Stay the Night was certified gold. 1999's I'm Not So Tough, her final album for BNA, was commercially unsuccessful, and she was dropped from the label. A self-titled fourth album followed in 2002 on Capitol Records. Overall, McCready's four studio albums have accounted for twelve singles on the Billboard country singles charts. This figure includes the Number One hit "Guys Do It All the Time", as well as the Top Ten hits "Ten Thousand Angels" and "A Girl's Gotta Do (What a Girl's Gotta Do)." Although she has not charted a single since 2002, McCready has received significant media coverage regarding personal events in her life. Born Malinda Gayle McCready in Fort Myers, Florida, McCready began singing in church at age 3, 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. The album produced four chart singles on the country charts: the title track at #6, followed by her only Number One hit, "Guys Do It All the Time." This song, in turn, was succeeded by "Maybe He'll Notice Her Now," a duet with Richie McDonald, then the lead vocalist of Lonestar. The fourth and final single, "A Girl's Gotta Do (What a Girl's Gotta Do)," peaked at #4. The next year, McCready released the album If I Don't Stay the Night. The album spawned three singles, "What If I Do", "The Other Side of This Kiss," and "You'll Never Know." The album sold 825,000 copies. In 1999, McCready released I'm Not So Tough. The first single, "All I Want is Everything," failed to break the top 50. The album was a commercial failure, selling 144,000 copies. Soon after, McCready's record company dropped her. McCready was then signed by Capitol Records. She released a self-titled album with Capitol in 2002 to disappointing sales, and was dropped by Capitol later that year. In May 2008, McCready released a song, "I'm Still Here," via her official website. She also announced that she is working on a documentary, a new album and a reality show. McCready's critically acclaimed fifth album, I'm Still Here, was released in March 2010. In June 2009, McCready signed on to appear on the reality series Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. In 1997, McCready became engaged to actor Dean Cain. The couple broke up the following year. McCready also dated former NHL hockey player Drake Berehowsky. In May 2005, McCready's ex-boyfriend, Billy McKnight, was arrested and charged with attempted murder after beating and choking McCready. The following July, McCready was found unconscious in a hotel lobby in Indian Rocks Beach, Florida, after attempting suicide. She was hospitalized for a drug overdose after washing down a large amount of undisclosed drugs with alcohol. That September, McCready, who was then pregnant with McKnight's child, attempted suicide for a second time by overdosing on antidepressants. On March 25, 2006, McCready gave birth to a son, Zander Ryan McCready. On December 17, 2008, paramedics were called to McCready's home in Nashville after an apparent suicide attempt; they transported her to a hospital after finding wounds on her wrists. McCready appeared in the third season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, which aired in January and February 2010, depicting her struggle with substance addiction.. She later discussed her recovery and possible studio work with Todd Gaither on a March 2010 episode of The View. On May 25, 2010, Mindy McCready was hospitalized in Cape Coral, Florida for a possible drug overdose. In April 2008, the New York Daily News reported on a possible long-term relationship between McCready and baseball star Roger Clemens that began when she was 15 years old. Clemens' attorney Rusty Hardin denied the affair and also stated that Clemens would be bringing a defamation suit regarding this false allegation. Clemens' attorney admitted that a relationship existed, but described McCready as a "close family friend." He also stated that McCready had traveled on Clemens' personal jet and that Clemens' wife was aware of the relationship. Clemens issued a statement saying only that "I have made mistakes in my personal life for which I am sorry." However, McCready confirmed the relationship as being sexual in nature. On November 17, 2008, McCready spoke in more detail to Inside Edition about her affair with Clemens. She stated that their relationship lasted for more than a decade, and that it ended when Clemens refused to leave his wife to marry McCready. However, she denied that she was 15 years old when it began, saying that they met when she was 16 and the affair only became sexual "several years later". A pornographic video tape of McCready and an ex-boyfriend referred to as "Peter" is set to go on sale by Vivid Entertainment on April 19, 2010. McCready has claimed the video was stolen from her home three years ago and is not sure if the video is of her.
