This Friday, October 2, the Grand Ole Opry will join the fight against breast cancer with “Opry Goes Pink.” ABC’s “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts, herself a breast cancer survivor, will be on hand as a special guest announcer for a portion of the night’s first show, introducing musical 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.

Superstar Carrie Underwood will take the stage on Friday to “flip the switch,” turning the Opry’s signature barn backdrop pink in support of the groups Women Rock for the Cure and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The shows will include performances from Underwood, Terri Clark, Jo Dee Messina, Lorrie Morgan, and others as well as special activities recognizing breast cancer survivors and the continuing fight against the disease.

When fans mention the code OPRYPINK when ordering tickets via telephone or enter the same code when purchasing tickets online, $5 from the sale of those tickets will be donated to Women Rock for the Cure and the Greater Nashville affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Go to Opry.com for more information.
