    Grand Ole Opry Goes Pink on Friday October 15 - It's part of their Women Rock For the Cure and Susan G. Komen for the Cure campaigns

    Pink is the new black! At least in October. The Grand Ole Opry® is joining Women Rock For The CureTM and Susan G. Komen for the Cure® in the fight against breast cancer on Friday, Oct. 15 with its second annual "Opry Goes Pink" show, during which the Opry's signature barn backdrop will be turned pink by The Judds.

    FOX News anchor Greta Van Susteren will be on hand as a guest announcer for a portion of the night's show, including The Judds introduction to the audience. Actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley will also be a guest announcer and will introduce the Greater Nashville Affiliate Susan G. Komen for the Cure® 2010 Honorary Survivor of the Year. In addition to The Judds, the show will include performances by John Anderson, Joey + Rory, Marty Stuart, and others as well as special activities recognizing breast cancer survivors and the continuing fight against the disease.

    When fans mention the code OPRYPINK when ordering tickets via telephone (800-SEE-OPRY) or enter the same code when purchasing tickets online (opry.com), $5 from the sale of those tickets will be donated to Women Rock For The Cure and the Greater Nashville affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Pink Packages including Opry tickets, a meet and greet with The Judds, and a Judds-autographed "Opry Goes Pink" print (package components dependent upon price level), are also available benefiting the two charities. Package information can be found at opry.com.

    "Opry Goes Pink" will extend this year to opry.com, which will go pink for the day on October 15 and will host an online pink auction beginning Tuesday, October 12, with all proceeds benefiting Women Rock For The CureTM and Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Among the items available in the pink auction are an "Opry Goes Pink" autographed guitar and 25th anniversary hatch print from The Judds, an autographed Sugarland wall hanging, autographed items from Luke Bryan and Craig Morgan, Opry vacation packages and more.

    What are you doing to follow in the Opry's footsteps to honor Breast Cancer Awareness month?
