Really heartbroken to hear about Mindy McCready. So tragic and unnecessary, but it's one of only 3 possible outcomes when it comes to addiction: get sober, go to an institution of some kind (i.e. jail, or if you're lucky a recovery center), or death. I've been to the edge myself and am here to tell you that it does NOT have to end this way. There is help available and there are options. No matter what kind of pain or circumstances you are in, it's possible to turn it all around by getting completely honest, asking for help and then surrendering control of your life to a higher power. Suicide results when your pain, shame, and fear overwhelm your ability to cope with it. Drugs, alcohol etc work for a while, but when they stop working, then what? I only feel compassion for Mindy and others suffering from this disease, and hope that by sharing some of my experience that it might cause someone out there to realize that there is always hope and there is a solution.
First CD review from Canadian music critic David J Shaw:
I have listened to this cd about 3 or 4 times now since I got it and every time I listen to it, I hear the style of Tm McGraw. Doc Holladay will put some drive in ur country and will rock ur country from here to the other side of of tomorrow. If ya want some kick to your country, then ya got to get this cd, one of our favorite cuts on this cd is cut no. 7, Girls in Camo, watch it fellas, I hear girls in camo want to party, so crank it up and put some boogie in ur boots, I have no doubt with the right producer and PR team, this cd will be gold real quick.
