America kicked off Wednesday with a soundtrack provided by of one of Iowa’s own.
2018 “American Idol” winner and Clarksville, Iowa, native Maddie Poppe performed her newest track, “Little Things,” live Wednesday on “Good Morning America.”

Poppe debuted Wednesday a studio version of “Little Things,” her latest to come from the yet-to-be-titled debut album. Released via Hollywood Records, fans can expect the album to drop May 17.
On the full-length debut, Poppe said in a news release: “The process on this album has been a lot of fun. ... I’m really staying true to myself on this album and I’ve gotten to work with a really great team.”
A taste of jaunty indie pop, Poppe sings in the “Little Things” chorus: “There’s a million little things that keep reminding me of you/You’re the air that I am breathing/You’re in everything I do.”
It’s the second track released from Poppe this month, following “First Aid Kid.”
Poppe returns to her home state in March for a Davenport concert supporting Gilda’s Club Quad Cities; she returns to Des Moines later this year for a performance at the Iowa State Fair.
