CMT News Presents: Mindy McCready Fallen Angel Premieres Sunday

CMT News Presents: Mindy McCready Fallen Angel, a one-hour news special documenting her life and career and examining the final days leading up to her tragic death, airs Sunday (March 10) at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CMT. The 37-year-old singer died Sunday (Feb. 17) at her home in Heber Springs, Ark., of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. McCready gained national attention in 1996 with her debut single, “Ten Thousand Angels,” and the No. 1 follow-up, “Guys Do It All the Time.” However, her history of substance abuse, combined with several suicide attempts and public child custody battles, landed her in the media spotlight later in her life. Hosted by CMT’s Katie Cook, the news special includes feature archival CMT interviews, never-before-seen video footage and interviews with country artists Ty Herndon , Richie McDonald , Lorrie Morgan and Jimmy Wayne . The special also includes interviews with record producers David Malloy and Norro Wilson. Eric Hughes, McCready’s child custody lawyer who spoke with her the Thursday before she died, will be featured in his first interview since her death.
