“Each time I get to march on the Opry phase is an honor, but tonight was extra special. When I turned that switch and saw the Opry barn light up pink, it was simply frustrating and effective knowing what the night indicated for many ladies,” said Carrie Underwood. “It was so gorgeous to see a lot of survivors in the audience and backstage, and to be able to commemorate them and their fight.”
The evening began with Anita Cochran cutting a pink ribbon and leading a pink carpet walk into the Grand Ole Opry Home. Breast cancer survivors and members of their assistance networks were followed by fans on the carpet, all vowing to support the battle versus the disease.
The Opry is donating $5 from each ticket sold given that the statement of tonight’s shows to the Susan G. Komen® Structure.
