Kelsea Ballerini, Trisha Yearwood & More Help Turn the Opry Pink in Support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The Grand Ole Opry joined forces with Women Rock for the Cure during the ninth annual Opry Goes Pink show on Oct. 24.

Kelsea Ballerini and 10-year-old cancer survivor Chrissy had the honor of flipping the switch to make the Opry’s signature barn turn pink.

Trisha Yearwood performed and introduced Chrissy as this year’s Women Rock for the Cure/Opry Goes Pink honorary survivor, symbolizing individual battles being won against the disease. Chrissy, who at age 8 was the youngest person ever to be diagnosed with breast cancer, is now cancer-free. She was joined onstage by her older sister as well as her parents, both of whom are also cancer survivors.

LANCO, Easton Corbin, Charles Esten, Runaway June and Connie Smith also performed.

Women Rock for the Cure is a Nashville-based nonprofit committed to connecting and supporting young women facing breast cancer

Beginning on Oct. 5, $5 from every Opry ticket sold will be donated to Women Rock for the Cure.
