Tristan McIntosh says, "The amount of support that I've gotten from family , friends, church community and Tristanites to be here because of all of you guys. I just want to say thank you. My idol journey so far has just been amazing . I've just had so many great mentors like Scott Borchetta , Kellie Pickler and all the judges. I'm just very grateful to have this opportunity.

When the judges agree that I am a country artist, it really just gives me confirmation about who I've aspired to be my entire life. It's very important to me, because now not only the judges know itAmerica knows it.The ultimate goal for my American Idol journey is to just have fun and really take in all the experiences and use them to further my career in music.
