When the Grand Ole Opry joins the fight against cancer in this Friday’s (10/2) special “Opry Goes Pink,” one of America’s favorite morning news personalities will be on hand to help. Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts, who is a breast cancer survivor, will serve as a special guest announcer for part of the night’s first show. Roberts will introduce acts as well as the Greater Nashville Affiliate Susan G. Komen for the Cure® 2009 Honorary Survivor of the Year Tracie Shelby to the crowd.
During each of Friday’s shows, Carrie Underwood will “flip the switch,” turning the Opry’s signature barn backdrop pink in support of Women Rock for the Cure and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. These shows include performances from Underwood, Terri Clark, Jo Dee Messina, Lorrie Morgan, Mindy Smith and more. Tickets are available at opry.com or by calling 800-SEE-OPRY. Mention code OPRYPINK when ordering to have $5 of the sale donated to Women Rock for the Cure and the Greater Nashville Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
