Mike McClure
Mike McClure is a singer, songwriter, artist, and producer from Tecumseh, Oklahoma. He is a songwriters songwriter and a founding member of The Great Divide.

McClure got his start in Stillwater, Oklahoma, where he hung out and played music at the notorious "Farm" with other Red Dirt artists such as Bob Childers, Tom Skinner, Steve Ripley, The Red Dirt Rangers, and Scott Evans. After forming The Great Divide with J.J. Lester, Scotte Lester, and Kelley Green in 1992 and contributing to six studio albums and one live two-part album, McClure set out to do his own thing.

"I'd Rather Have Nothing", written by McClure and originally recorded by The Great Divide was recorded by Garth Brooks for his 2005 Limited Series Box Set on the album The Lost Sessions. It has sold over 2 million copies.

In 2002, while still a member of The Great Divide, he released Twelve Pieces, his first solo album. After recruiting Tom Skinner (bass) and Eric Hansen (drums), McClure had his band together and he departed The Great Divide. In 2004, The Mike McClure Band released their first album Everything Upside Down, a hard-hitting rock album with 19 tracks. McClure often uses the quote that his new band was "twice as loud, and half as popular." Since the first album, the band put out seven more albums. In 2011, TGD reunited for a show and have been playing again together ever since. After the death of Tom Skinner in July 2015 and the departure of Hansen, the band took on its current look, which is a rotation of Okies.

As a songwriter and producer, McClure has collaborated with many other artists. He worked closely with Joe Hardy (ZZ Top) to create the sound he loves and was the permanent producer for Cross Canadian Ragweed. "Fighting For", written by McClure and Cody Canada reached number 39 on the Billboard Hot Country charts. McClure has also produced albums by other artists around the scene such as Stoney LaRue, Tom Skinner, Jason Boland & the Stragglers, Scott Copeland, Johnny Cooper, Whiskey Myers, Katie Butts, and the Turnpike Troubadours.

These days McClure is still writing. Prolifically. He will release two singles in 2019, and record a long anticipated new solo record to be released in the spring of 2020. His first release in a long time, Black Rose, came out in June 2019. He has also began scoring films and creating visual art.
