A day after a pep rally, parade and concert for her hometown, Clarksville native Maddie Poppe thanked Iowans for what she calls "the best day of my life".
On her Facebook page, Poppe posted an image from her concert at the Butler County Fairgrounds. The visit was part of her hometown visit as a finalist on American Idol.
"And I owe it all to you, Iowa."
Poppe will compete for the title of American Idol in a 2-part finale Sunday and Monday night on KCRG-TV9.
