The Norman, Okla-bred singer/songwriter/pianist Maggie McClure has spent a good amount of her career placing her songs in TV shows such as Dr. Phil, Cougar Town, The Real World, and The Hills, in TV movies like Hallmark Channel's My Christmas Love and One December Night, and in feature films like Cowgirls N’ Angels, A Cowgirl's Story, and Christmas in the Heartland. Her smooth, confessional songwriting has made her a natural for these formats. Maggie has performed more than 1000 shows throughout her career in over 40+ states in the U.S. at iconic venues such as The Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles to Madison Square Garden in NYC, and most everywhere in between. Her original songs empower and inspire listeners with a positive message of hope, love, perseverance, and faith.
Maggie has recorded/released 4 solo studio albums to date: Maggie McClure (2007), Good Morning & Good Night (2010), Time Moves On (2014), and Color It Up (2017) as well as many singles. She has also released a couple studio albums with husband Shane Henry as The Imaginaries: The Imaginaries (2021) and Hometown Christmas (2019) as well as many singles.
McClure has opened for artists like Sara Bareilles and Paul Reiser. Additionally, she has appeared in multiple feature films including SONY’s A Cowgirl's Story and Ascension Media's Christmas In The Heartland as well as in commercials for Sam’s Club (in which she is the lead actor, the lead voice over artist, and the songwriter/musical artist featured) and Emergen-C, and TV shows such as ABC's The Middle. Maggie also had the privilege of singing the National Anthem at the very first NBA playoff game in Oklahoma history with more than 18,000 people in attendance, as well as recently performing the official holiday halftime show at Madison Square Garden for the NY Knicks along with Shane Henry.
Produced by Maggie and Shane, The Imaginaries debut self-titled album (recorded in famed Muscle Shoals, AL) was released March 2021. It serves as both an introduction to The Imaginaries and the beginning of their journey as a band after both singer songwriters have enjoyed their own successes as solo artists. Maggie, with her subtly sweet vocals and piano style fuses seamlessly with Shane’s blues-rock grit to form their own unique blend of Americana music. The Imaginaries were selected to open for the Brian Setzer Orchestra Christmas Rocks! Tour (25 dates across the USA) in November-December 2019. The duo has also opened for Judy Collins and John Waite.
Maggie and Shane wrote/produced the soundtrack for and made their debut as Film Producers with family feature film, A Cowgirl's Song written/directed by Timothy Armstrong.

THE IMAGINARIES SADDLE UP FOR
A COWGIRL'S SONG NETFLIX PREMIERE
ON AUGUST 21
The Imaginaries saddle up for the Netflix premiere of A COWGIRL'S SONG on Aug. 21. The husband-and-wife duo, composed of Maggie McClure and Shane Henry, served as producers of the coming-of-age drama, and starred in the film alongside Cheryl Ladd, Darci Lynne and Savannah Lee May. To celebrate, The Imaginaries and Darci Lynne are hosting a livestream event on Aug. 18 at 6 p.m. CT on their social media platforms (@ImaginariesBand and @ItsDarciLynne).
The fourth installment in the COWGIRLS 'N ANGELS franchise, A COWGIRL'S SONG follows an aspiring but adrift teen singer who goes to live with her grandmother, once a country music legend, that has fallen on hard times after the death of her husband five years earlier. Together they overcome adversity and find redemption through their love of music.
Written and directed by Timothy Armstrong and produced by Armstrong, Starla Christian and Jessica Barondes, A COWGIRL'S SONG was originally released in theaters and on VOD from Samuel Goldwyn Films on April 22. The original motion picture soundtrack, written and produced by The Imaginaries, was released in tandem with the film's premiere. The Americana and country-driven track list features recordings from The Imaginaries and each of the leading actresses.
Wide Open Country premiered the first listen to the lead single, "Oklahoma Stars," "a cinematic love song that parallels their own romance (Bobbie Jean Sawyer)," while Cowgirl Magazine revealed the first listen to their cover of the Western classic, "Don't Fence Me In," which "fit the spirit of the movie (Carly Billington)." Parade debuted the official video for "Oklahoma Stars" that features "ringing acoustic guitar, gorgeous harmonies and a love story with a happy ending (Laura Whitmore)."
The Imaginaries have collaborated with Armstrong on many of his films since 2011 when McClure’s song “Good Morning and Good Night” was chosen to be featured in the opening credits of COWGIRLS 'N ANGELS. McClure and Armstrong wrote a custom song for A COWGIRL'S STORY, which The Imaginaries performed on camera in the film released in 2017. For A COWGIRL'S SONG, The Imaginaries co-wrote four original songs for the film’s soundtrack with Armstrong and produced it all virtually due to the pandemic.
Momentum continues for The Imaginaries this fall as they prepare for the release of "Things Are Gonna Be Alright" on Sept. 9. The new single will be available for pre-order on Aug. 18. Written by Henry and Jeff Silbar ("Wind Beneath My Wings"), "Things Are Gonna Be Alright" is a deeply personal track for The Imaginaries that delivers a universal and relevant message of hope to listeners. The duo also has upcoming tour dates, including concerts with Noah Vonne in Dallas on Sept. 13 and Tulsa on Sept. 14, a stop in Nashville for AMERICANAFEST and a show on Sept. 18 with The Woods and Kiely Connell at The Basement as well as a concert on Oct. 14 in Oklahoma City.

"Maggie McClure always understands exactly what I'm looking for when I ask her to compose a song for my movies. Beautiful and evocative, Maggie's original songs have been a big part of my movies over the years. She always delivers exactly what the film needs!"
"A Cowgirl’s Song delivers the musical goods in spades, with songs by McClure and her band, The Imaginaries."
"Maggie McClure has returned with a vibrant new EP entitled Color It Up, as well as a fresh music video for the EP's single "Coming Home". You can watch her new music video on YouTube and download Color It Up on iTunes. Music fans know the name Maggie McClure from her numerous song placements on television and in film, including CBS's talk show "Dr. Phil" and MTV's hit reality series "The Hills." The pop singer-songwriter has also spent an inordinate amount of time on the road, with her official biography stating that she's played more than a thousand live shows over her career. Now with Color It Up, her first release since the Christmas record Happiest of Holidays in 2015, she's bringing another seven songs of upbeat music and positive messages to brighten up everyone's end of year playlists. The album is kicked off by "Coming Home," which will make the listener immediately remember what it feels like to go home again - an apt sentiment as the holiday season approaches and many people will be doing just that. It's a sweet song that doesn't overdo the sentimentality, and that's a concept that carries through the entirety of Color It Up. McClure has a knack for writing songs that make the audience feel good without making it obvious that she's trying to do so, and her uplifting sound is a breath of fresh air across the music landscape. Music fans who are looking for something to cheer them up will want to start listening immediately."
"Maggie's acting instincts are excellent, and I think she'd be a welcome addition to the cast of any film."
"The real star of the film [A Cowgirl's Song] remains its music. Featuring some wonderful country music numbers, Cowgirl’s music absolutely pops and breathes life into the film as a result."
"Sitting behind her piano, she had a Disney princess presence, the type of aura that reminds you about Hollywood light comedies and musicals, and when I was precisely thinking about this, she said she had five songs (including the happy-hooky ‘Coming Home’) featured in an upcoming movie, 'A Cowgirl's Story', directed by Timothy Armstrong and starring Pat Boone, which should be out very soon (April 18th to be exact). Maggie has actually been really good at placing her songs on TV shows (Cougar Town, The Real World, The Vineyard, The Hills, to only name a few) as well as in films. Surrounded by a full band, including a childhood friend from Oklahoma, she and her musicians even performed the very freshly recorded ‘Magic Man’, which sounded like a melancholic waltz on piano, and the Disney princess impression could not have been more obvious than during the cute song she sang with her husband, fellow musician and Oklahoma native Shane Henry, who backed her up on vocals and whistling. Maggie McClure’s performance at the Hotel Café may have been far away from the over-produced stadium-show happening in the desert at the same moment – didn’t Lady Gaga perform at Coachella that same night? – but it was a sincere and heartfelt one. She is more a Carla Rae Jepsen type (to whom she has been compared), with a solid foot in a big city like Los Angeles and a heart still in her small town in Oklahoma,… but her sugar-coated vocals mixed with playful melodies were certainly here to bring a feel-good moment of sweetness."
LA-based artist, Maggie McClure, has the same type of pop demeanor that you would get from Sara Bareilles and Regina Spektor – her latest single, “Be Right Here For You,” has a piano-fueled perkiness that surrounds you with commercial vibes. It is the type of track you would expect to hear from an ad or TV episode due to its feel-good effect that immediately pins you to the chorus. There is a lightness to the compositional arrangement that cavorts between classy pop to modern chicness.
“Maggie McClure sings with sweet innocence and profound insight at the same time. That's why we felt her song "Good Morning and Good Night," would be the perfect music to start our movie, Cowgirls 'n Angels.”
“The young songstress invites us into her world with intimate stories about her life and the unrest that plagues it. However, her sweet voice and keen sense of melody are more on the sunny side of pop-rock, as she pens breezy atmospheres that are as dreamy as they are enjoyable. A pleasant mix of guitar versus key driven gentleness, she occasionally takes nods to the ’60s and certainly knows her way around a hook.”
