ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jennifer Blake stars in and has co-created a new musical based on the tragic and fascinating life of country singer Mindy McCready.

After successful runs in Los Angeles and in New York, Off-Broadway, this EP album of excerpts from the show's countrified covers was recorded in Los Angeles in June 2017, including some of the original cast members. Jennifer Blake and Brady Harris have, along with Zack Cosby, Michael Post, Michael Rubin, and Michael Ursu, reinterpreted these 90's country chart toppers as fresh, current day sonic storytelling with southern flavor.

“I grew up in a small town, singing forever,” she tells Rolling Stone Country. “I loved her ambition, her drive — which is a lot of what we are focused on the show — and her real deep, deep love for the men in her life, including her brothers. We started to notice a theme of all the different men in her life and how that formed and informed different songs she would sing along the way. It just lends itself to such a good tribute, telling her life through her own songs. To me, that was fascinating. There were a lot of those ‘oh my gosh’ moments, the synchronicities of her life. She wanted it so bad and when she got it so fast and skyrocketed and kind of burned out quickly, she spent the rest of her life trying to get back to that double-platinum country megastar. But she was an easy target.”

“Onstage Blake is always compelling, never shying away from the darker side of her character. But it is Blake’s volcanic vocal performance that truly makes the show. When she sinks her teeth into a song, you know that you will truly feel it, as her voice is a primal conductor for every type of emotion. It’s refreshing to see a musical tackle an issue that carries real weight. It’s stripped down, dirty, and tells McCready’s story well. Hats off to cast and crew.”
