Few at her age can say they have achieved as much as singer, songwriter and pianist Maggie McClure.
“My song is one of the only songs that’s not country in the movie,” McClure said, noting it will be featured on the film’s soundtrack album.
“It really stands out among the other songs that are in it.”
Last month, she represented the film at the Dallas International Film Festival, where Cowgirls n’ Angels had its world premiere.
“It was pretty surreal and really awesome to hear something I created and worked on in a movie theater,” said the 25-year-old.
Cowgirls n’ Angels director Timothy Armstrong said McClure’s song was perfect for the film’s opening.
“Maggie McClure sings with sweet innocence and profound insight at the same time,” he said. “We were thrilled to be able to use Maggie’s song, ‘Good Morning and Good Night,’ over the opening credits. The song sets a perfect mood for the themes of the film: hope, redemption and the importance of family.”
McClure’s goal is to get her music placed in more films and television programs. Her résumé boasts aural appearances on shows such as MTV reality series The Hills and The City, and the long-running CBS soap opera The Young and The Restless, but McClure considers the latest as the greatest.
“Having this placement in a film being released in theaters is my biggest accomplishment this far,” she said.
The musician leads a busy life in Los Angeles with her husband, but the pair are back in Oklahoma for the film’s release.
Regardless how the movie performs, McClure has plenty of projects in the works, including a potential role on a singing competition reality show, The Star Next Door, which is being produced by Queen Latifah and is set to air on The CW.
“It’s really awesome that everything is just a stepping stone,” she said. “It all happens in a specific order for a reason.”
