Chickasha Getting The Star Treatment In Country Music Movie

Thursday, June 3rd 2021, 7:22 pm

CHICKASHA, Oklahoma -

It's hooray, for Chickasha.

"Everything is downtown Chickasha. Grocery downtown, the bank. We're really capturing this town 100%, I'd say," said producer Starla Christian.

The movie "A Cowgirl's Song" is filming entirely in the Chickasha area, with plenty of homegrown talent mixed with some Hollywood.

Cheryl Ladd of "Charlie's Angels" fame stars in the film, which has a country music driven plot about a family that is brought together through music.

It's the fourth installment in the Cowgirl's 'N Angels series.

"It's a real family story, a lot of pain, a lot of joy, a lot of love in it, and I think it's the kind of story people would really like to see right now," said Ladd.

Sooner State stars include "America's Got Talent" winner Darci Lynne, as well as The Imaginaries, who are doing a little bit of everything in the film. They're acting, co-producing and writing six original songs along with the score.

"I'm really just getting a crash course, and it's so much fun and I'm learning so much," said Maggie McClure, one half of the group.

This movie is just another sign of Oklahoma's rave reviews as a film-friendly state, thanks in-part to rebate programs and diverse landscapes.

Maggie and her husband Shane moved to Los Angeles in 2012 for more opportunities before returning a few years ago.

"It's been amazing to see how much is going on in the entertainment industry right here in our backyard," McClure said. "People aren't having to leave home to do what they love and it's happening right here, and it's only going to get better."

It will be a wrap for filming on Sunday in Chickasha. There is no release date yet, but you'll be able to watch the movie on multiple streaming services.
