Trisha Yearwood will flip the switch on the Opry’s signature barn backdrop on Oct. 14, turning it pink for “Opry Goes Pink” to support the fight against breast cancer.
“We all have friends and family members who are battling, have won, and those who have lost their fights against breast cancer,” Yearwood notes. “Everyone who knows me knows how important this cause is to me, in particular prevention, yearly screenings, early detection, and research for effective treatments and cures. I’m honored to flip the switch and join the Grand Ole Opry in spreading information and love during Breast Cancer Awareness month.”
Other artists slated to perform that evening include Opry members The Oak Ridge Boys and Mandy Barnett, as well as Easton Corbin and Miko Marks, who will make her Opry debut.
Beginning Friday (Sept. 30) when fans order tickets, $5 from every ticket sold will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the fight against breast cancer. Tickets are available at opry.com and at (800) SEE-OPRY.
