Mindy McCready Worked On Video About Suicide The Day Before Her Death [View all]

A few days before her death, Mindy McCready enlisted the help of her friend Danno Hanks to make a video. Her late boyfriend David Wilson produced a song prior to his death with an up-and-coming artist named Courtney Dashe. The two women had since met and bonded over the song, and Mindy was hoping to put together something special that would help those who lost a loved one to suicide. At the time, Hanks thought the project was a tribute to Wilson, who recently took his own life, but after McCready shot herself and the family dog yesterday, he’s now convinced the video was some kind of macabre suicide note.

Here’s a portion of the actual quote he gave to E! News…

"I thought she was talking about sending a message about suicide for David's death but this is unbelievable. She was sending me a message. I wish I had been more alert to what it was. Everybody wants to reach out after the fact but nobody wants to be there when it is happening. I just didn't think she would do this. She had two kids to live for. I still can't fathom the whole thing."


The song in question is entitled “I’ll See You Yesterday”. Dashe went to one of Mindy’s concerts and personally gave her the song, along with a blessing to record it. The track was apparently a great comfort to McCready in the last weeks of her life, and those around her thought working on it and possibly even doing a cover version had given her a reason to live. Unfortunately, it now seems it gave her a way to say goodbye.
