I'm Not So Tough

Album: I'm Not So Tough (1999)
  • Although it was not written by McCready but by Bruce Bouton, Hillary Lindsey and Robert Ellis Orrall, this was a song she most certainly could have written. Running to 4 minutes 11 seconds, it is the title track of her September 1999 album. Five and a half years later, McCready was nearly murdered by her former lover, and in February 2013, after domestic abuse, drug problems and mental health issues, the talented mother of two took her own life in her third and final suicide attempt. >>
