Platinum-selling, country music recording artist Mindy McCready, 1990’s hit-maker and year 2000 celebrity news headliner, comes home to country radio with her first release in eight years, “I Want A Man.”* The anthem for every woman steadfast and unyielding in her self-proclaimed vow to seek out an honest, strong and intimate companion will be released to radio on March 29, 2010. [CDX/Vol. 494 (03/01/10)]
After years spent out of control and reeling in personal hardships, eclipsing her notoriety, McCready’s new single serves as the first step to shine once again in the spotlight to redeem her place as an award-winning country vocalist and artist. Closing the chapter on her past, McCready sings of sharing her future with a man just as tough, resilient, vulnerable and sensitive as she is.
One of the most pointed tracks on McCready’s new album, I’M STILL HERE (Iconic Records/Linus Entertainment/E1 Entertainment), Mindy co-wrote “I Want A Man” alongside Billy Crain and Robin Bruce; she pines for a love so enduring in this matter-of-fact musical shout-out that, “After me, there won’t be no other.”
The song’s flirty lyrics begin in a near-whisper, “I want him tough, I need him gentle. A little bit on the edge, a little sentimental...” With a perfect blend of pop and twang, McCready exorcises former flames within a rollicking chorus.
The Phil Spector-infused, wall of sound-inspired, “I Want A Man” (produced by Trey Bruce) is a grown-up version of McCready’s biggest success, “Guys Do It All The Time;” both showcasing McCready’s sass, strong-will and her refusal to settle for less.
After all her setbacks, McCready is moving forward, and “I Want A Man,” along with the rest of the musical testimonials highlighted on I’M STILL HERE, proves that she’ll close her storybook “happily ever after.”
