Chris Kroeze, from Barron, WI, was Runner Up on NBC’s THE VOICE in 2018. As a child, Chris knew there was a guitar in the corner of the family basement that no one was supposed to touch. When no one was looking, a young Chris Kroeze would sneak down and find it. On his 6th birthday, Chris got a guitar of his own and hasn’t put it down since. When he was in middle school, his dad told him every band needed a singer, and the only way to tell if that would be Chris was to give it a try. He was a natural. The pull of small town life and the passion for music never left as Kroeze turned into one of the top country musicians in the Midwest.
