Kroeze's journey to the finale has been one of celebration throughout the Midwest. This past Monday, Minnesota and Wisconsin both celebrated 'Chris Kroeze Day' to honor the singer's finale performances.
He is the first Wisconsinite to make it to the show's finals. Throughout the season, Kroeze never shied away from highlighting his hometown roots, even using his platform to call attention to the ongoing investigation of missing Barron 13-year-old Jayme Closs.
Kroeze says he plans to spend the next year playing live shows and putting out new music.
