Weekend Video Post – Texas Singer and Songwriter
Heather McCready whom I get to know on Twitter is a uniquely gifted singer and prolific songwriter from Fort Worth, Texas, USA. She has recently released her third album, Give It A Day, a musical collage of deeply emotional, captivating songs, as well as blissful, imaginative melodies.
As a person, Heather is a genuinely warm, personable, deeply spiritual woman whose music brings hope and peace into others’ lives. Her music is honest and vulnerable and her voice is incredibly beautiful and angelic. She enjoys intimate performances that accentuate her true artistry, passion, and the love of music.
She loves playing upbeat bluegrass music with fiddles and dancing for outdoor festivals and peaceful acoustic performance for silent intimate surroundings. Wherever she travels, she has music for the journey!

Heather McCready is a uniquely gifted and prolific singer and songwriter from Fort Worth, Texas, USA whose music will reach deep inside of you and touch your spirit. With touches of bluegrass, Celtic, classical, and folk, Heather has an original and remarkable sound that is all her own.

Heather’s own inspiration for her music stems from her personal platform for mental health awareness. After losing two of her closest family members to suicide and struggling with bipolar disorder herself, Heather aspires to help other mental health sufferers and to fight against existing antiquated stigmas associated with mental health disorders. In support of her platform, Heather is narrating an upcoming documentary produced by the Traumatic Loss Institute pertaining to mental health that will feature her song “Pray It By” from Heather’s first album Finally Free.
Heather currently lives in Arlington, Texas with her husband, Mark, and their two children, Marshall and Ruthie. When she is not in the studio or writing music, Heather loves spending time with her kids and has a passion for photographing nature and the world around her.
