The Grand Ole Opry partnered with Women Rock For The Cure in the fight against breast cancer Tuesday (Oct. 24) with its ninth annual “Opry Goes Pink” show.
Cody was on hand to make his debut as guest announcer, while Kelsea Ballerini and 10-year-old cancer survivor Chrissy flipped the switch making the Opry’s signature barn Pink.
Opry member 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 eight was the youngest person ever to be diagnosed with breast cancer, is now cancer-free. She was joined on stage by her older sister as well as her parents, both of whom are also cancer survivors.
Additional performances included LANCO, Easton Corbin, Charles Esten, Runaway June and Connie Smith.
Cody was also presented with a personalized framed Hatch Show Print commemorating his time as guest announcer during “Opry Goes Pink.”
The Opry is donating $5 from each ticket sold since the announcement of tonight’s show to Women Rock For The Cure.
