SPENCER, Iowa — The Clay County Fair announces Maddie Poppe with special guest Maggie Lindemann as part of the SRG Concert Series in the Sleep Number Grandstand at the 2019 Clay County Fair on Saturday, September 14 at 7:30pm.
“It will be an honor to have an Iowan and American Idol winner at the Fair,” said Fair Manager Jeremy Parsons.
Singer-songwriter Maddie Poppe from Clarksville, Iowa, stole America’s hearts in 2018 and was ultimately crowned the winner of American Idol, giving the audience an emotional, overjoyed, and tear stained performance of her single, “Going Going Gone.” Poppe followed her three-month American Idol Live Tour with the release of her latest single, “First Aid Kit,” and has been in and out of the studio working on new music with her debut album set to release in the summer of 2019.
