The former Voice contestant has announced seven Minnesota shows between March 21 and September 21.

Chris Kroeze -- the singer/songwriter from Barron, WI (yep, same Barron as Jayme Closs) -- has announced his touring schedule for 2019 including seven shows in Minnesota.

The hometown country boy will kick off a three-show run at Le Musique Room in St. Michael Cinema March 21-23. Le Musique Room claims itself as the "World's Smallest Stadium" with -- according to Bring Me the News -- a capacity of just 200.

Kroeze will return in the summer for the Kick'n Up Kountry Music Festival in Karlstad, MN June 14.

July 19 he'll perform at Treasure Island Resort & Casino in Welch and August 3 at BBQ for Blue in Watertown, MN.

Finally, Kroeze will return to Elk River in September for the Get Busy LIVIN Music Festival.

Chris is set to release his new album early 2019.

Following the rescue of Jayme Closs -- who went missing from Kroeze's hometown Barron, WI in October -- the singer posted his reaction to Facebook:

While I sincerely appreciate all the interview and media requests and messages... there were so many people that did more than I, and I just did what anyone else would do in the situation to help... and feel strongly that all the focus should be on her, her family, and this community which I'm so proud and blessed to be apart of.
