Kellie Pickler "Flips Switch" on Opry's Signature Barn as "Opry Goes Pink" in Support of the Fight Against Breast Cancer
The Grand Ole Opry® joined Women Rock For The Cure™ in the fight against breast cancer tonight with the Opry’s fourth annual “Opry Goes Pink” show. Kellie Pickler, who recently shaved her own head to show solidarity to a childhood friend facing cancer, flipped the switch on the Opry’s barn backdrop, turning it pink for the night. Tonight’s show also included performances by Sarah Darling, Jimmy Dickens, Kristen Kelly, The Farm, Mindy Smith and others as well as activities recognizing breast cancer survivors and the continuing fight against the disease.
The Grand Ole Opry® is presented by Humana®. Opry performances are held every weekend of the year, and the Opry will return to the Ryman Auditorium this Friday, Nov. 2 for shows through Jan. 28, 2013. The Tuesday Night Opry continues through Dec. 11, 2012.
