New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
American Idol winner and Hollywood Records/Industrial Media's 19 Recordings recording artist, Maddie Poppe, has announced her highly-anticipated next single, "Keep On Movin' On," due for release October 26th. The song was written by Jarrad Kritzstein (Kate Nash, Weezer), Brandon
Lowry (Brittney Spears, Elle King) and Hillary Lindsey (Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini). The release marks her first original music since her Idol release, "Going Going Gone." Maddie will perform the single for the first time on LIVE with Kelly
and Ryan on October 26th.
The single kicks off a busy Fall for Maddie, who recently wrapped the 44+ city American Idol Live tour. After the tour, Maddie returned to Iowa and joined Luke Bryan
on stage for his Farm Tour before headlining her own sold-out hometown show. She recently performed at Brit + Co's #CreateGood event in New York City and is nominated for The Competition Contestant of 2018 for this year's People's Choice Awards (vote HERE).

& Ryan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Good Morning America
and the 2018 Radio
Awards, as well as two performances at the legendary Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, opening for "Beauty and the Beast In Concert." She has no plans of slowing down, and is currently working on a full length album in Los Angeles and Nashville.
Maddie Poppe is a twenty-year-old singer-songwriter from Clarksville, Iowa. After performing a duet with her sister at a school variety show in the sixth grade, Maddie fell in love with music and learned to play guitar, ukulele and piano. In 2016, Maddie released her debut album, "Songs From The Basement," which she wrote, produced and recorded alongside her father, Trent. Maddie had been performing locally in Iowa for over five years when she decided to audition for American Idol which she calls her "saving grace." As she continued through the competition, she ultimately stole America's hearts and was crowned the winner, giving the audience an emotional, overjoyed, and tear stained performance of her single, "Going Going Gone." Since her Idol victory, she has been in high demand and gone on to appear and perform on multiple TV shows including Jimmy Kimmel Live, Live! with Kelly
& Ryan, the 2018 Radio
Awards, Good Morning America, and performances at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and the 2018 CMA Fest in Nashville.
