When American Idol returned to television in 2018, Clarksville, Iowa native Maddie Poppe stole America's hearts and won. Now it looks like we may have another Iowan on the show.

Haley Myles (formerly Slaton) of Cedar Rapids will be featured on the historic 20th season of American Idol! Myles auditioned in Austin, Texas in front of judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie in October of 2021. She sang "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus and "One and Only" by Adele.

The experience was so amazing. I am so happy I got the opportunity to follow my dreams of becoming a singer," said Myles.

 

Myles was pregnant with her son during her audition. Check out her adorable baby bump.

Aweeee. Not only did Myles audition in Austin, but she met her now-husband there too! He was also auditioning. The two knew it was meant to be and tied the knot in December 2021. Congrats to the happy couple and new momma! Myles told us:

Im so blessed because I actually met my husband during our auditions in Texas and we got married on Christmas Eve!! We just knew we were the ones for each other right off the bat, I then had my son January 20th and hes the biggest blessing in our lives. I love them both so much."

Hopefully, we get to say congrats again, when we see if she makes it through to Hollywood.

Myles' episode won't air until Sunday, March 20, but we'll be anxiously waiting until then. We hope this mama and talented singer makes it through! We think she'll have a pretty good shot considering she sounds like this....keep scrolling to see a video of her talents from two years ago.

From her videos on her social media page, it appears she sings a variety of genres. It's awesome to see more talent from the great state of Iowa. You know, Iowa is known for its 'fields of opportunities,' Haley may have just found hers.

Don't forget to tune in to hear Haley's talent as she auditions in front of the all-star judges (no pressure) on March 20. Hopefully, she'll get that golden (or platinum) ticket to Hollywood and we get to hear more from her. We'll be watching!
