The iconic Grand Ole Opry once again works together with Susan G. Komen to fight breast cancer with Opry Goes Pink on Friday, October 14. Opry member Trisha Yearwood is set to flip the switch on the signature Opry barn backdrop, making it pink for the night!
“We all have friends and family members who are battling, have won, and those who have lost their fights against breast cancer. Everyone who knows me knows how important this cause is to me, in particular prevention, yearly screenings, early detection, and research for effective treatments and cures. I’m honored to flip the switch and join the Grand Ole Opry in spreading information and love during Breast Cancer Awareness month,” said Yearwood.
For every ticket purchased to the show, $5 will be donated to Susan G. Komen to help the fight against breast cancer. Fans can purchase tickets now at opry.com and at (800) SEE-OPRY.
Additional artists that will perform at the special event include Opry members The Oak Ridge Boys and Mandy Barnett, as well as Easton Corbin, while Miko Marks will make her Opry debut.
Marks was given the surprise of a lifetime on Friday, August 12 when friend Rissi Palmer delivered the exciting invitation.
“The word ‘surprised’ does not even cover it… I am still processing all the feelings. Thank you, @rissipalmermusic and @opry #oprydebut,” Miko captioned an Instagram video.
The Opry recently celebrated its 97th birthday, hosting six nights of shows on October 4-9. In the midst of the celebration, the Opry hosted an “Opry Loves The 90s” Studio A live fan event with Deana Carter on October 8.
Artists that made appearances during the special week include Opry NextStage artist Breland, Deana Carter, Chapel Hart and Jon Pardi, in addition to Opry members Bill Anderson, Terri Clark, Vince Gill, The Isaacs, Jamey Johnson, Craig Morgan, Carly Pearce, Ricky Skaggs, Steve Wariner, Chris Young and more.
On top of her Opry obligations, Yearwood is currently on the road for The Final Tour, a tribute to Wynonna Judd’s late mother.

The 11-date arena tour kicked off on September 30 in Grand Rapids, MI, at Van Andel Arena and will continue through October, where the trek will wrap up in The Judds’ home-state of Kentucky at Rupp Arena on October 29.
