On Tuesday, October 24, The Grand Ole Opry embarks on a very important battle with some of country music’s brightest female stars. As the 9th annual Opry Goes Pink is nearing, country singers and The Grand Ole Opry begin to raise awareness once again about breast cancer.
Opry Goes Pink will be joining forces with Women Rock for the Cure, a Nashville-based, non-profit organization committed to connecting and supporting young women battling breast cancer as well as developing awareness and providing outreach programs through the strong influence of the entertainment industry. The collaboration thus helps support more women and bring light into the real challenges that breast cancer can bring to every woman.
Some of the artists who have been revealed to be part of this year’s Opry Goes Pink line-up include Trisha Yearwood, Runaway June, Easton Corbin, LANCO, and Kelsea Ballerini. Cody Allan will serve as the show’s announcer. Ballerini is slated to kick-start the upcoming event, with a signature barn-backdrop from Opry to accentuate her bombastic opening performance, and LANCO’s performance for the annual Breast Cancer Awareness event will be their first and their debut in the Opry house. Meanwhile, Trisha Yearwood will also be introducing Women Rock for the Cure’s honorary survivor of the year. Doing so will help signify some of the individual battles that women have successfully triumphed.
Events like Opry Goes Pink symbolizes how people can unite and work together to inspire others to take an active stand against cancer. Likewise, it shows that there can still be a light at the end of the tunnel despite the painful and dreadful process it takes for cancer patients to achieve full recovery. At the moment, there is still no probable cure for cancer, and that’s why one of the greatest things we can contribute to cancer patients is to encourage them to have a heart and soul that’s stronger and braver than before.
