She certainly had a troubled life. She had a baby boy last year and the father shot himself last month. Now she's done the same. What a tragedy.

She has two sons, both of whome were taken into care because Mindy was not thought capable of looking after them.

Country is a state of mind, not a state of America.

All the major British newspapers had obits of Mindy McCready yesterday. The Times had a reasonable half page obit which credited Mindy with subverting traditional country gender stereotypes.
The Guardian quotes Mindy: "I call my life a beautiful mess and organised chaos," she told the Associated Press in 2010. "It's just always been like that. My entire life, things have been attracted to me, and vice versa, that turn into chaotic nightmares, or I create the chaos myself. I think that's really the life of a celebrity, of a big, huge, giant personality"
