About This Episode
With overwhelming support of his home town of Barron, Wisconsin, Kroeze raised money to head to Nashville in 2014 and recorded his first single “Four Letter Words” at the famous Station West Recording Studio. That first single went on to receive heavy radio play throughout the Midwest and open numerous doors for the young musician.
A call from the producers of NBC’s Emmy Award Winning television show, The Voice, catapulted Kroeze onto the National Stage. Kroeze’s combination of vocal and guitar skills, along with his humility and small town country boy nature, have captured the hearts of millions of fans week after week. With guidance from Blake Shelton, he’s continued to wow audience’s week after week. “His potential is limitless” said Maroon 5’s Adam Levine.
