His raspy, bluesy voice earned this longtime musician second place on the "American Idol"-style singing contest in 2011.

Krajcik recently wrapped a national tour.Cheryl Obert and Jess Heidorn
The couple was featured on the DIY Network's home-remodeling show as they renovated the kitchen in their 1925 West Side house.
