Chad Robert Kroeger (born Chad Robert Turton on November 15, 1974 in Hanna, Alberta) is the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the band Nickelback.

Chad Robert Turton also known as Chad Robert Kroeger was born in Hanna Alberta Canada on November 15, 1974.

Chad Kroeger, along with Saliva vocalist Josey Scott, Theory of a Deadman guitarist Tyler Connolly, and Our Lady Peace drummer Jeremy Taggart, performed the theme song titled "Hero" for the blockbuster smash hit movie Spider-Man in 2002. Also in 2002, Kroeger wrote and sang on "Why Don't You & I" for Santana's Shaman. However, when Arista decided to release the song as a single in Summer 2003, Kroeger's label, Roadrunner, refused permission, citing concerns that Kroeger appearing on a "high-profile single" would compromise the excitement over Nickelback's fall 2003 release The Long Road. Kroeger is the one that recommended The Calling's Alex Band, another Arista artist, as a replacement for re-recording the single. The recording with Kroeger on vocals can easily be found on most peer-to-peer networks to this day. In 2007, Chad Kroeger ended up working with Santana for a second time, when he co-wrote and recorded guitar and vocals parts for a new song meant to appear on the compilation album Ultimate Santana. The track is called "Into the Night" and was released as a single on August 20, 2007. The album Ultimate Santana was released in October. Besides working with Santana, Chad also recorded with Travis Tritt on his new album The Storm where Tritt did a cover of Nickelback's "Should've Listened" track from The Long Road.
