"American Idol" winner Maddie Poppe, a Clarksville native, plans to play the fair on Aug. 8, 2019. 

92.5 KJJY morning show host Eddie Hatfield announced the concert at the fair's opening ceremony, where Poppe sang the National Anthem and took questions from Gov. Kim Reynolds. 

Poppe plans to play a free stage, a fair representative said.
