The country music world lost a troubled angel today.  Mindy McCready reportedly shot and killed herself earlier this evening.  The apparent suicide comes 10 days after being admitted into a 21 day outpatient treatment and the death of her boyfriend.  Mindy was 37.

I was always rooting for her, hoping she would get back on track and make a comeback.  It's very sad as she was a very talented singer and a good songwriter.  At one point she was one of the hottest female vocalists in country music opening for Tim McGraw and others.

The Hawk remembers Mindy with two of her biggest hit songs and the very last interview Mindy gave before her death.

May she rest in peace.  And thoughts and prayers are with her children today.
