Enjoy genuine-country soul and alluring vocal delivery from NBC’s THE VOICE 2018 runner-up Chris Kroeze on this week’s episode of Tent Show Radio, recorded live from Big Top in 2021. Kroeze's vocal abilities, guitar skills, and small-town charm connect with both the hearts and minds of audiences across various generations, performing more than 200 shows across the world every year. The Wisconsin-born artist performs tunes from his 2020 album “We All Sing Along,” and his 2019 self-titled album “Chris Kroeze,” before treating the audience to a delightful cover of “Six Days on the Road.” Later in the episode, Kroeze is joined by Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter Joyann Parker for a special performance.
