'The Voice' winner Chris Blue returns to Knoxville Friday night

Chris Blue, winner of 'The Voice' and Knoxville native, is returning home Friday night, and the people of his home town are excited.

On Friday at approximately 2:47 p.m., Oak Ridge police officers responded to a crash on South Illinois Avenue at Commerce Park Drive. Both roads were closed to traffic in all directions as a result of the crash.

Anyone who lives or works in Sevier County is invited to visit Dollywood and Dollywood's Splash Country for a $5 donation at each park.

Chris Blue has put in long hours in the studio leading up to his win on NBC's 'The Voice,' but there's another kind of training he's done that few have gotten to see.
