It's time for Mindy McCready to face the music for the...well, we've lost count on which time this is.

The ever-troubled country star is due to surrender to Tennessee authorities Tuesday to begin serving 60 days behind bars for violating probation, yet again, in her 2004 prescription drug fraud case, her lawyer announced this morning.

"I am working very hard to put all of this behind me as quickly as possible so I can get back to what I like to do most: sing, write songs and entertain," the country twanger said in a statement.

"I would like to thank my fans for their unwavering support as I continue to work on my recovery and to regain custody of my precious son, Zander."

In July, the 32-year-old songbird postponed her hopes for a comeback after overdosing on the sleeping pill Ambien and ingesting vodka, a relapse that led her to a Tennessee emergency room followed by a trip to an Arizona rehab center.

Roger Clemens' former No. 1 fan was previously jailed back in 2007 after violating probation on the same years-old drug charge.

Her attorney says McCready agreed to turn herself in after working out a deal with prosecutors in Williamson County, Tenn.

The singer's 2-year-old son, Zander Ryan, is currently in the care of McCready's mother, Terri.
