Maddie Poppe

Let’s hear it for Maddie!!

If you’ve been riding through Iowa for the last few years and you haven’t heard her its because you leave too darn early or don’t stop enough.

Cut it out.

I read somewhere that the top 12 finishers go on an “American Idol” tour after the season concludes so Maddie may be unavailable for RAGBRAI.

I predict she will get a top 3 finish. She has the “All-American Girl” voters which should get her to the top 3. My sense is the country has some fatigue with the highly-produced, over the top stage show music and another Sheryl Crow type artist should be breaking soon. Maybe its Maddie and she’ll take the top spot.

Ragbrai nation needs to come out in full force for Maddie once the fan voting is in effect. She is an amazing talent. So refreshing to hear someone who can sing without having to blare into the microphone. Her rendition of Brand New Key was spectacular.

I hope she goes all the way.

Maddie is great. It is fun for my wife and I to watch her every week. She is a real talent!

In 2014 RAGBRAI went through Clarksville, Maddie’s hometown. Passing through town I heard Maddie singing and was mesmerized, unable to leave, until she left the stage. The only place I could go during that hour and a half was up to a guitar case in front of the stage to add to a huge pile of money. I even asked around to see if someone would break a fifty so I could contribute more. It turned out I was talking to Maddie’s mom who gladly broke my fifty. Maddie got a lot of RAGBRAI love that afternoon. Ever since, I have expected to see her on TV some day. Its great to see her on American Idol.

She has a live feed on her facebook account. She expressed she will be playing at RABRAI this year. No specifics given on place or time yet.
