The bright lights of the Grand Ole Opry stage will glow pink for a very special performance of the world's longest-running radio show on Friday, October 15. The Opry, Women Rock for the Cure and Susan G. Komen for the Cure are joining together to focus the second annual 'Opry Goes Pink'night's show on the support and education of the fight against breast cancer. The Judds will be on hand to kick off the party by flipping the switch to bathe the Opry's familiar barn backdrop in pink for the night's performances. Joining Wynonna and Naomi for a night of music, special announcers, cancer survivors and other special activities will be actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure 2010 Honorary Survivor of the Year. The audience will hear from Joey + Rory, John Anderson, Marty Stuart and others.
