Press Release: August 27, 2009
The Grand Ole Opry is joining the fight against breast cancer by "going pink" during two Opry performances Friday October 2. On each of the night's shows, Opry superstar Carrie Underwood will take the stage to "flip the switch," turning the Opry's signature barn backdrop pink in support of the groups Women Rock for the Cure and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The shows will include performances from Underwood, Terri Clark, and other artists to be announced as well as special activities recognizing breast cancer survivors and the continuing fight against the disease.
>Nice that the Opry is doing this and donating $5.00 from the sale of each ticket. I hope they have a good turnout. The only other couple of comments is that I notice they are saying there will be 2 shows on that Friday night and that the barn backdrop will be pink.
