Carrie Underwood joined forces with the Grand Ole Opry on Oct. 26 for the 10th annual Opry Goes Pink show in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Carrie flipped the switch on the Grand Ole Opry’s signature barn backdrop, turning it pink for the night as she took the stage to perform two shows that evening. Carrie also flipped the switch on the inaugural Opry Goes Pink show in 2009.
“Every time I get to step out on the Opry stage is an honor, but tonight was extra special,” said Carrie. “When I flipped that switch and saw the Opry barn light up pink, it was just overwhelming and powerful knowing what the night meant for so many women. It was so beautiful to see so many survivors in the audience and backstage, and to be able to celebrate them and their fight.”
In addition to Carrie’s performances, a number of artists took the stage, including cancer survivors Anita Cochran, Karen Mills and Rita Wilson, as well as Ronnie Milsap, Riders in the Sky, and Gone West featuring Colbie Caillat.
The Opry will donate $5 from each ticket sold since the announcement of the show in September to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
