Mindy McCready Musical Coming

(Radio.com) Late country singer Mindy McCready is about to be honored in a big way. A new musical is coming to Los Angeles that focuses on the life of the troubled performer.

McCready the Musical, starring Jennifer Blake--who has credits in Zoolander, The Stepford Wives and Behaving Badly--will trace McCready's rise to fame and high profile relationships with Dean Cain and Roger Clemens.

"We start in 1990, where she first sang at the Hired Hand karaoke bar in Fort Myers, Fla.," Blake told Rolling Stone Country. "She was a karaoke star, so to speak, and it was the night that she met Roger Clemens. All of this is true. What we've done since is re-imagined what happened in those situations and those conversations in all the research we've done."
