Just three weeks after Mindy McCready lost her boyfriend, songwriter David Wilson, the embattled country singer has suffered another setback.

In an emergency hearing on Wednesday, a judge ordered McCready to be committed to a treatment facility to cope with mental health and alcohol issues. During the hearing, McCready, 37, admitted to drinking too much alcohol, blaming her overindulgence on her grief at Wilson's death.

McCready's two children – Zander, 6,, and Zayne, 9 months – have been removed from her home and are currently in foster care.

I feel so bad for Mindy. When she was first starting her career we ran into each other many times, and she was always sweet and kind to me. I'll be saying a prayer for her.
