Producers of the Patsy Cline musical “Always… Patsy Cline” said Tuesday that Bowersox will portray the legendary country singer in a new production this summer in New York.

The musical features 27 Cline hits, including “Walkin’ After Midnight,” ‘‘I Fall To Pieces,” ‘‘Crazy,” ‘‘She’s Got You” and “Your Cheatin’ Heart.” A live band accompanies the action.

Bowersox, who lost season nine of “American Idol” to Lee DeWyze in 2010, is currently promoting her new release, the sophomore CD All That For This. Bowersox’s previous acting roles include a 2011 appearance on ABC’s “Burden of Proof.”
