The Grand Ole Opry® joined Women Rock For The Cure™ in the fight against breast cancer last night for its seventh annual “Opry Goes Pink” show. Grammy, ACM, and CMA award-winner Kacey Musgraves flipped the switch on the Opry’s signature barn backdrop, turning it pink for the night as Musgraves and others including Opry members Terri Clark, Montgomery Gentry, Jeannie Seely, Lorrie Morgan as well as Clare Bowen and Cassadee Pope performed in support of breast cancer awareness.
The evening kicked off with Women Rock For The Cure™ representatives cutting a pink ribbon and leading a pink carpet walk into the Grand Ole Opry House for the show. The group made up of breast cancer survivors and members of their support networks were followed by other fans on the carpet, all pledging to support the fight against the disease.
The Opry is donating $5 from every ticket to the show sold between September 22 and tonight to Women Rock For The Cure™. The Grand Ole Opry® is presented by Humana®. Opry performances are held every weekend of the year, and the Tuesday Night Opry continues through Dec. 15.
