The Grand Ole Opry, joined Women Rock For The Cure in the fight against breast cancer Saturday night with its third annual “Opry Goes Pink” show. ABC’s “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts, herself a breast cancer survivor, was on hand as a special guest announcer and introduced the Women Rock For The Cure Honorary Survivor of the Year Yolanda Smith. Opry member Martina McBride flipped the switch, turning the Opry’s signature barn backdrop “pink” in support of breast cancer awareness. McBride’s current single, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It,” offers hope to those affected by cancer, and the powerful song is included on her latest album, Eleven, released Oct. 11. Kellie Pickler turned the barn “pink” in the Opry’s second show of the evening. Additional performers tonight included Lauren Alaina, Edens Edge, Ronnie Milsap and more. An online auction including items signed by artists on tonight’s show is running currently at
