Montgomery Gentry to headline 2015 Heat in the Street festival

The Glencoe Fire Department’s relief association continues to draw big-name talent to its annual Heat in the Street  music festival.
The department announced last week that Montgomery Gentry will be the headliner at this year’s Heat in the Street, set for July 25 in the Glencoe City Center parking lot.
Also slated are Eric Paslay, Chris Hawkey and The Plott Hounds.
Montgomery Gentry is comprised of the vocal duo of Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry, both natives of Kentucky.
Montgomery Gentry has had a total of 14 Top 10 singles, including five that reached the top of the charts — “Something to Be Proud Of,” “If You Ever Stop Loving Me,” “Lucky Man,” “Back When I Knew It All” and “Roll With Me.” They were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2009.
Glencoe firefighter Jon Dahlke, one of the event’s organizers, said this will be the fourth year of Heat in the Street, which raises funds for the relief association — and the second year that it has attracted national talent.
Dahlke said the event started before he joined the department.
“It just started as a new idea as a fundraiser for the department,” said Dahlke. “We were looking for something different that would fit into the area.”
Dahlke said Heat in the Street was loosely patterned after the Cold Spring Fire Department’s Fire Fest.
Last year’s Heat in the Street attracted over 2,800 people.
“This year, we’re expecting about 5,000,” said Dahlke.
Dahlke said ticket sales are being announced this week in The Chronicle as well as on local radio stations.
Tickets are available on the Heat in the Street website, www.heatin
thestreet.com, as well as through the department’s Facebook page. They also are available at Glencoe Wine & Spirits and the Glencoe City Center.
