Carrie Underwood to Perform and “Flip the Switch” at 10th Annual “Opry Goes Pink” Showcase to Fight Breast Cancer

The Grand Ole Opry has joined forces with Carrie Underwood for the 10th annual Opry Goes Pink show on Oct. 26 in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Carrie will flip the switch on the Grand Ole Opry’s signature barn backdrop, turning it pink for the night as she takes the stage to perform two shows that evening. Additional performers will be announced in the coming weeks. Carrie also flipped the switch on the inaugural Opry Goes Pink show in 2009.

Carrie and the Opry have also teamed to create Cry Pretty Opry Goes Pink packages featuring Opry Goes Pink tickets, Carrie’s Cry Pretty album and a collectible print. When fans order the package or tickets, $5 from every package and ticket sold will be donated to the fight against breast cancer.
