Those of you who, like me, only know of Mindy McCready from her appearances on various Roger Clemens-releated legal documents and newswires–she appeared on the latter again last night, thanks to reportedly saying that she worked more hours than she really did on a community service report–and looking for reasons why she keeps cropping up in the news may be interested to hear her spunky country No. 1 “Guys Do It All The Time.” (It came out in 1996, when I was burrowed further down the college-radio rabbit hole than I ever had been or would be, and reached No. 72 on the Hot 100.) After the jump, another McCready track, this one a breakup anthem that was apparently covered by members of L7 after the fact.
(This was apparently covered by L7 offshoot Other Star People, although I can’t find a link. Anyone?)
McCready, whose probation stems from a drug charge in 2004, posted $5,000 bond and was released two hours after she was arrested. Reports claim that she’s working on a reality series at the moment, which sounds to me like a very, very bad idea, although I guess it would serve as a check on her community-service reports.
