Louisville, KY (WHAS11) - Ever since day one of American Idol Layla Spring became a well-known name here in Kentucky. Coming from the "Heart of Kentucky," Layla's audition video was probably one of the most adorable videos during the whole audition process. Surprising the judges, her little sister Dyxie joined her and even performed along with her. Once that episode aired, Dyxie became an overnight sensation on social media. She was so popular, she even started up her own Instagram page (@dyxiebay) which now has around 19K followers!
When American Idol began its promotional campaign, Layla became one of the talents that they focused on by running this promo introducing her to America.
