It’s that time again when the Grand Ole Opry barn lights up a fabulous color pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Rascal Flatts will be there to make it happen.
The sixth annual Opry Goes Pink spectacular takes place Tuesday night (Oct. 28) in Nashville in partnership with Women Rock for the Cure .
Rascal Flatts will do the honors of flipping the switch this year to show their support for breast cancer awareness. And many of their famous country friends will be there to show support and perform, as well.
It will no doubt be a powerful and emotional night for many, including Troy Gentry, who revealed last week that his wife Angie is fighting breast cancer. He made the announcement just as he and bandmate Eddie Montgomery launched their “Check Your Headlights campaign promoting breast cancer awareness.
Gentry posted a deeply personal message on the band’s Facebook page revealing his wife was “going through chemo treatments” and that her “prognosis was very good.”
For every ticket sold for the Opry Goes Pink night, $5 will be donated to Women Rock for the Cure, a Nashville-based nonprofit organization committed to connecting and supporting young women facing breast cancer. Founded in 2007, the organization works to build awareness and provide outreach programs through the power of the entertainment industry.
