Technically Countrywide did not go out of business but rather was acquired by Bank of America In 2008.
Also Know, what happened countrywide? Countrywide was bought by Bank of America in 2008 as the housing market spiralled towards a collapse driven by bad lending and speculation.

Why did Bank of America buy Countrywide?
Countrywide Financial, the troubled lender that became a symbol of the excesses that led to the subprime mortgage crisis, is being acquired by Bank of America for $4 billion in stock. As the largest U.S. mortgage lender, Countrywide helped fuel the housing boom by offering loans to high-risk borrowers.
