The following is an overview of a future book about my life.

I haven’t had a hit in almost a decade. I’ve spent my fortune, tarnished my public view, and made myself the brunt of punch line after punch line. I’ve been beaten, sued, robbed, arrested, jailed, and evicted. But I’m still here. With a handful of people that I know and trust, a revived determination, and both middle fingers up in the air, I’m ready. I’ve been here before. I’m a fighter. I’m down, but I’ll never be out.

This book is not about shifting blame. I know I’ve made mistakes and I take full responsibility for those mistakes. This book is part diary, part therapy, part confessional, part job, and part apology. But mostly, I just want people to understand me better. So when people like Nancy Grace or the TMZ parasites pass judgment, they can do so with the full story.

So here it is, the story of Mindy McCready. My story.

Please remember, this is only an overview of the book. I’ll be posting chapter excerpts periodically.

___________________________________________________________________

Some people have lived such extraordinary lives that their story begs to be written as the rest of the world waits for the chance to peek in at the fame, fortune, violence, scandal, and shocking behavior from a safe distance.

I am one such person.

My drive came from an abusive upbringing and the dependence of two younger brothers. My fame came from my success as a country music singer. My infamy came from outside my career: Bar-brawls, secret affairs, domestic violence, drug charges, jail time, rehab stays, and suicide attempts. I could say that the information was taken out of context, blown out of proportion and completely misconstrued, and a lot of it was. Some things, however– more than I’d like to admit– are just the sad truth. But what nobody knows are the details behind the splashy headlines. The person I am, the intentions behind every bad decision, and events leading up to each “I can’t believe I did that” moment. This book will supply me the opportunity to show that I’m not so different from my fans and antagonists.

I was an underdog from birth. I was born into an unhealthy house ruled by a mother who was too young and too violent to successfully take care of children. My two brothers who would eventually look to me for rescue came later. Nature gave me the ability to sing and favorable looks. My mother taught me the art of manipulation and convenient detachment. My father taught me to depend on no one. My brothers showed me the necessity to succeed and sever the dependence on our parents. Armed with this, I graduated high school early and moved to Nashville to be a star.

Two years later that is just what I was. With my first album I became one of the top selling debut female country artists of all time. The view from the top of the charts was inspiring but fleeting. The men I dated on the way up and the way down were incredible and terrifying. I’ve been engaged to a movie star, courted by a prince, kept by a professional baseball player, and nearly beaten to death by the man who would father my son.

Now, I have no delusions about my seemingly precarious situation. I have served a total of seven months in jail. I have just spent six week at an inpatient facility where I worked with doctors and counselors every day. The FBI and U.S. Congress are currently seeking my testimony against Roger Clemens, a man I once loved. My public persona is badly warped and bears little resemblance to the person those closest to me know. My musical career has been on hold for several years. Still I have a record deal, a reality TV show in the making, a full team of managers, lawyers and assistants, and a new clarity to accompany my devilish determination and ferocious work ethic. I’m ready for whatever comes next. I’m down but I’ll never be out. This extraordinary life, begging to be written, is a comeback story.

    Great excerpt, can’t wait for the book! You go girl! As a Christian, I believe wholeheartedly in the grace of God and the forgiveness He has given to those who will receive His Son, Jesus. As a Christian we are called to love and forgive our fellow man/woman and I am here to say that this Christian loves and forgives you, though you and I have never met and you’ve never done a thing to me. May the Lord, Jesus Christ continue to knock on the door of your heart so you may fully discover just how much you are truly loved, for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son for you, Mindy McCready! God bless that precious Zander of yours!

    I want to hear more about your killer recordings. Stories about the sessions and such.

    Some of these responses though: “angel inside and out”, “so sweet”, and god happy Twinkling Girl’s sermon! Either these people know you or their talking out their ass!

    Look forward to the book.

    I have read your book highlights that you posted I hope that you leave my post on your blog if you are a truly honest person and have changed you will keep the good and bad posts on your blog. I find the excuses you make ridiculous I have walked and survived a very similar path as yours and I never did drugs, attempted suicide, child kidnapping or lose my child, carried on an affair with a married man, etc. You also must have hired a ghost writer to assist you as you don’t seem educated enough to write about your life. Your true colors come out with your comments about the 2 middle fingers up in the air. Remember, a leopard doesn’t change it’s spots! You caused your adult issues of your own volition child abuse many of us have survived such abuse and don’t dwell on it and blame others for it. Shame on you blaming your mother! Your looks are not a crutch you are depending on and remember beauty fades and dumb is forever.
