‘American Idol’ Winner Maddie Poppe Releases First Single ‘Keep On Movin’ On’
We’ve been eagerly waiting for Maddie Poppe to release her first single after winning American Idol for months now. The wait is over, my friends. Maddie released her new single Keep on Movin’ On and it’s everything we hoped it would be.
Maddie’s style is definitely rooted in the folk music tradition. It makes sense since she’s a girl from America’s heartland. It’s a jaunty, upbeat song about how you need to not let life get you down, but rather Keep on Movin’ On. Get it? I can see crowds of people singing along with this one. It’s a pretty infectious tune. Maddie, of course, brings all of her usual charm and unique voice to the performance. The song was written by Jarrad Kritzstein, Brandon Lowry, Elle King, and Grammy award winner Hillary Lindsey. That’s some powerhouse singing talent. I am a little disappointed it isn’t one of Maddie’s original songs. The ones we heard during the show were so good. Still, I’m a fan of this tune.
After all, it’s a scary world right now and hope is in short supply. This type of song is exactly what we need to help us get through the day.
