To support fight against breast cancer Tuesday, Oct. 19
As the Grand Ole Opry nears its historic 5,000th Saturday night broadcast on Oct. 30, the show that made country music famous once again joins together with Susan G. Komen in the fight against breast cancer with “Opry Goes Pink” on Tuesday, Oct. 19.
Multi-Platinum-selling rising superstar Lauren Alaina, who recently debuted her new album “Sitting Pretty On Top of the World” at No. 1, will flip the switch on the Opry’s signature barn backdrop, turning it pink for the night.
“I know first-hand how devastating cancer can be to a family,” Alaina shared. “Breast cancer in particular can be a difficult diagnosis. I am honored to bring awareness to this cause on my favorite stage in the world.”
When fans order tickets, $5 from every one sold will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the fight against breast cancer. Tickets are available at opry.com and at 800-SEE-OPRY.
Additional artists scheduled to perform include Dillion Carmichael, Maddie & Tae, Del McCoury Band, Victoria Shaw and Dusty Slay.
On Oct. 30, the Opry, the world’s longest-running radio show, will mark a historic, record-breaking milestone with its 5,000th Saturday night broadcast. Scheduled to perform on the Opry’s 5,000th Saturday night broadcast is Bill Anderson, Garth Brooks, John Conlee, Terri Clark, Vince Gill, Chris Janson, Dustin Lynch, Darius Rucker, Jeannie Seely, Connie Smith, The Gatlin Brothers, Chris Young, and Trisha Yearwood.
