Early Life: Chad Kroeger was born Chad Robert Turton on November 15, 1974 in Hanna, Canada. His father, Wendall, left the family when Chad was 2 years old, so he starting using his mother's maiden name instead of Turton. Kroeger has a brother, Mike, who plays bass for Nickelback. Chad's mother, Debbie, gave him a guitar, and he learned how to play at age 13. The following year, he spent some time in juvenile hall after breaking into his junior high school and stealing money 11 time; in a 2012 interview with "Men's Health," Kroeger said that he stole the money to pay for an amp.
Career: In the early 1990s, Kroeger was in a grunge cover band, Village Idiot, with his brother, his cousin Brandon Kroeger, and Ryan Peake; they went on to form Nickelback in 1995, but Brandon left the band in 1997. Chad has recorded 9 albums with Nickelback, including "Curb" (1996), "Silver Side Up" (2001), and "All the Right Reasons" (2005), and hit songs "How You Remind Me" (2001) and "Photograph" (2005) are among several Nickelback singles that have reached #1 on the "Billboard" Hot 100 chart.
In 2001, Kroeger formed the band The Suits XL with Yohann Gosselin, Sam Loubier-Demers, Felix-Antoine Berube, Oliver Roy de Belleval, and Patrick Paquet. He co-founded a record label, 604 Records, in 2002 and released The Suits XL's only album 4 years later. In 2007, The Suits XL were nominated for a Canadian Indie Award.
In 2002, Chad wrote and sang the song "Why Don't You & I" for Santana's "Shaman" album. However, when Arista decided to release the song as a single in the summer of 2012, Kroeger's label, Roadrunner, refused to give permission out of concern that the release would take away from the excitement being generated around Nickelback's fall 2003 release, "The Long Road." In 2007, Chad again worked with Santana when he co-wrote and recorded vocals for a new song intended for the compilation album "Ultimate Santana." In 2003, Kroeger won a SOCAN Award for the song "Hero," which he recorded with Josey Scott, Tyler Connolly, and Jeremy Taggart for the "Spider-Man" soundtrack.
Personal Life: Kroeger and fellow Canadian/French singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne became involved in a personal relationship after working together on Lavigne's fifth album in March 2012. Chad and Avril became engaged after only one month of dating and married in the south of France on July 1, 2013, which also happened to be Canada Day. The couple divorced in 2015.
Kroeger was convicted of DUI in 2008 for a 2006 incident in Surrey, British Columbia. He was fined $590 and lost his driver's license for a year. In 2015, part of Nickelback's North American tour and the entire European tour were canceled because Kroeger needed surgery for a cyst on his vocal cords. The surgery was successful, but doctors told him it would take 9 months to fully recuperate.
Real Estate: In 2020, Lavigne and Kroeger sold their mansion in Sherman Oaks, California, for $5 million, five years after separating; they bought it for $5.6 million in 2015. In 1990, Kroeger built a home in Abbotsford, British Columbia; he sold the estate (which was featured on a 2005 episode of MTV's "Cribs") in 2013, and the buyer spent $1 million on renovations before putting it on the market for $9 million.
