Opry Member Martina McBride to "Flip The Switch" As Opry's Signature Barn Goes Pink
The Grand Ole Opry® is joining Women Rock For The Cure™ in the fight against breast cancer on Sat., Oct. 22 with its third annual “Opry Goes Pink” show.
Opry member Martina McBride, whose current single “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” offers hope to those affected by cancer, will flip the switch on the Opry’s barn backdrop, turning it pink for the night. The powerful song will be included on Martina's impending Republic Nashville album, ELEVEN, which is slated for release on Oct. 11.
The special show will also include performances by Lauren Alaina, Edens Edge, Kellie Pickler, Ronnie Milsap, and others as well as activities recognizing breast cancer survivors and the continuing fight against the disease.
Beginning today, when fans order tickets to the night’s 7 p.m. show, $5 from every ticket sold will be donated to Women Rock For The Cure™. Click here for tickets.
“Opry Goes Pink” will extend this year to opry.com, which will go pink for the day on Oct. 22 and will host an online pink auction beginning Tues., Oct. 18 with all proceeds benefitting Women Rock For The Cure™.
