Kelsea Ballerini and Trisha Yearwood Will Help the Grand Ole Opry ‘Go Pink’
Ballerini will be the main guest of the night at the Opry in light of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which the iconic country music venue plans to partner with Women Rock for the Cure, a local Nashville non-profit, to host a night of entertainment dubbed ‘Opry Goes Pink.’ Marked as the ninth annual time this charitable event has been held at the Opry, Ballerini will perform a number of her hits and bring along guests to help out the generous cause. She’ll also flip the switch on the Opry’s barn backdrop, turning it pink for the night in honor of the cause.
Yearwood will also be hand to play a few of her hits and introduce the crowd to the honorary survivor of the night as recognized by Women Rock for the Cure.
Other artists from the country music community will contribute their voices to the cause as well, including the Opry debut for LANco and performances by Easton Corbin, Runaway June and many others yet to be announced. CMT’s Cody Alan will serve as the ‘Opry Goes Pink’ emcee throughout the benefit show.
Throughout the month of October, many stars reach out to support breast cancer research by hosting philanthropic events to give back to a variety of foundations involved with the disease. Jason Aldean teams up with the Susan G. Komen Foundation for his annual Concert for the Cure every year, which will take place in Louisville, Kentucky, on October 20 this time around.
The ‘Opry Goes Pink’ concert will be held in Nashville on Tuesday, October 24, and tickets are available to purchase on the Opry website. With each ticket sold, $5 of the proceeds will go directly back into the Women Rock for the Cure Foundation to provide programs to reach out to breast cancer patients and survivors.
