Country singer Mindy McCready has credited photos of her baby son ZANDER and his frequent phone calls for helping her survive in jail. The star has recently been released from a six month sentence for a parole violation, and only saw her son once while she was incarcerated. And now the singer, who attempted suicide twice while she was pregnant with her son, insists she's a changed woman. She tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood, "I've paid dearly for my sins... just in the time spent away from my son." And she's determined not to repeat the mistakes of her past, where she racked up a series of drug-related and driving offences. She adds, "I don't even know that person anymore."
