Pleasant View hosted its second Cruise’n N Groove’n event of the season on June 20, with 150 cars on hand and a stellar musical performance.
“Obviously the live performance of Tristan McIntosh was the highlight,” said event organizer Jim Hutchens.
The show featured a live performance in Pleasant View Village by 2016 “America Idol” finalist Tristan McIntosh, 20, who lives near Pleasant View.
McIntosh has performed in several cities across the country, including New York in “The Linda Ronstadt Experience,” a tribute to award-winning vocalist Linda Ronstadt, one of McIntosh’s favorite singers.
McIntosh has also performed at the Ryman Auditorium and at the Grand Ole Opry. She plays several instruments, including piano, guitar and trumpet.
“I think the show was perfect,” former Pleasant View alderman George Leasure said. “The crowd really enjoyed her music, and I think it was the icing on the cake for a great evening and another great Cruise’n N Groove’n in the village.”
The winner of this month’s Cruise’n N Groove’n mayor’s choice award was Donald Sparks for his 1958 Chevrolet custom blackberry red truck with a 383 stroker engine.
This month’s winners in the Jeep competition were Heather and Phil Harant for their 1978 CJ-5 full body off restoration. The husband and wife from Ashland City said that the rebuild took two years and was completed in 2010.
Mayor Perry Keenan said that this year is the last time that Cruise’n N Groove’n will have a Jeep-themed competition.
The next Cruise’n N Groove’n event is scheduled for July 18 from 5-9 p.m. Trucks will be the special theme for the event.
