Mindy McCready Sex Tape To Be Released

Country singer and VH1's "Celebrity Rehab" star, Mindy McCready is reviving her past and it's not just her singing career.

E! Online reports that the attention-seeking songstress is releasing a sex tape as well.

Vivid Entertainment has set an April 19 release date for "Mindy McCready, Baseball Mistress," as the troubled country singer's XXX debut.

The hour-long video features McCready and a boyfriend named "Peter," which includes a running narrative by the singer about previous conquests, including Alan Jackson, Dean Cain and, most infamously, Roger Clemens.

Because no lawsuit has been filed over the footage, E! Online speculates that McCready has given the green light to the producer, but this has not been confirmed.

The sex tape surfaces just as McCready is releasing her first country album in 14 years, "I'm Still Here."

The album, which opens with a somber string arrangement and prayerful words about sin, forgiveness and making amends, includes the songs, "I Want To Love You" and "I Want a Man."

McCready is known best for a tabloid life of domestic abuse, drug and DUI arrests, and suicide attempts. She gained stardom in 1996 as an engaging 20-year-old country music spitfire riding a feisty No. 1 hit, "Guys Do It All The Time," and a double-platinum album, "Ten Thousand Angels."

She later had a high-profile role in the 2010 edition of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab." On the TV show, she performed her title song, "I'm Still Here" about surviving difficult times, which brought her "Rehab" colleagues to tears.

While uneven at times, "I'm Still Here" suggests McCready's talent has endured, despite the destructive public behavior.

Will the release of her sex tape continue to lead her down that path of self-destruction or will it boost album sales?
