American Idol alums Maddie Poppe and Megan Danielle hit the road together

American Idol 2018 winner Maddie Poppe will hit the road for a summer tour beginning on July 6. Her opener on most dates will be 2023 runner-up, Megan Danielle!

“So excited to have @americanidol Season 21 runner-up @megandaniellemusic join me on my summer tour!!” the season 16 champ wrote on Instagram. Megan wrote on her own page, “Hey y’all, EXCITING NEWS! I’m so excited to hit the road this summer with @maddiepoppe” Get tickets at

Maddie’s latest single, “Good Enough to Let You Go,” was co-written last year by Maddie alongside, David Spencer and Bryan Simpson in Nashville, where the singer recently relocated.

Are Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Maddie Poppe Still Together?

The singer-songwriter feels the song and its emotion are relatable for just about everyone who’s ever felt trapped at one point or another. The song is about “being stuck in a situation or relationship for too long – and in a dark sort of way wishing it would end in the worst way possible, just so you’d have a reason to close that book forever,” she said. “Oftentimes, things fizzle out or end cordially on their own, which can make it too easy to open that door again.”

Megan Danielle teases new music

Megan is fresh off of American Idol where she came in second place to winner Iam Tongi last May. During the show she released an original song, “Dream Girl,” written by former Idol contestant Laci Kaye Booth with Logan Wall. “‘Dream Girl’ is such an amazing song,” Megan shared in a press statement. “It has such a positive message, and I love how it lets people know that no matter what you go through you can still chase your dreams and keep going.”
