The Grand Ole Opry is celebrating the 15th anniversary of Opry Goes Pink on Tuesday, October 10th. Carly Pearce is headlining the music event.
Opry Goes Pink is the annual music event held by the Grand Ole Opry in support of breast cancer research. The Opry is working with Susan G. Komen For the Cure and Humana presents the show. Every ticket sold means a donation of five dollars to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in the fight against breast cancer.
According to Dr. Judy A. Salerno (president of the New York Academy of Medicine), the event is a major source of funding for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Thus far it has raised over 3 million since 2016.
Carly Pearce: 100th Grand Ole Opry Performance
On April 11th of this year, Carly Pearce performed at the Grand Ole Opry for the 100th time. She made her debut in 2015. In the eight years since then, the country music artist has made the famous stage a home away from home. For the event, several other Opry members joined the stage to celebrate. These guests included Ashley McBryde, Ricky Skaggs, The Isaacs, and Charles Kelley. As for songs performed, those included “Never Wanted To Be That Girl,” “Blue Moon of Kentucky,” “Easy Going,” “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” and “What He Didn’t Do.”
Opry Goes Pink
Accordingly, with her experience as an Opry member and as a woman in music, Pearce is the perfect headliner for the event. Joining her to perform on the Opry stage are several fellow Opry members. The Isaacs, Gary Mule Deer, Riders In The Sky, and Priscilla Block are only some of those performers. More names will be announced soon.
Pearce isn’t just performing. The singer-songwriter is also flipping the switch on the Opry’s barn backdrop and turning it pink for the special event.
