Robin Roberts Helps the Opry Go Pink
Robin Roberts, co-host of ABC's 'Good Morning America,' is headed to Nashville to be a guest announcer at the Grand Ole Opry. The Opry is "going pink" this Friday (Oct. 2), in honor of breast cancer awareness. Robin herself is a breast cancer survivor, after being diagnosed with the disease two years ago.
Carrie Underwood will do the honors of flipping the switch to turn the Opry's red barn backdrop pink. Carrie will also perform on the special show, along with Jo Dee Messina, Lorrie Morgan, Mindy Smith and Terri Clark, whose mother is battling cancer.
A portion of the proceeds from tickets to Friday's show will be donated to Women Rock for the Cure and the Greater Nashville affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
