Luke Bryan to Help Grand Ole Opry Go Pink to Fight Breast Cancer
Luke Bryan will help the Grand Ole Opry and country fans support the fight against breast cancer next month by flipping the switch that turns the Opry pink.
The "Knockin' Boots" singer will also be a part of two shows at the Grand Ole Opry that night, Oct. 22. In what's becoming an annual tradition, he'll flip a big switch that turns the background of the Grand Ole Opry pink, a show of support for Susan G. Komen and Komen Central Tennessee. Five dollars from tickets for both the 7PM and 9:30PM shows will go to the fight against breast cancer.
Carrie Underwood had the switch-flipping honors in 2018, but a long list of stars (Kellie Pickler, Kacey Musgraves and Rascal Flatts) have done it in previous years. Bryan will perform acoustic sets during both shows and will be joined that night by Anita Cochran, Sara Evans, Craig Morgan and the Oak Ridge Boys.
This isn't the first time the 43-year-old has turned a Grand Ole Opry appearance into a charitable event. In Sept. 2017 he headlined a night for St. Jude Children's Research hospital with a multi-song acoustic set. This next performance could include new music. Talking to Taste of Country last weekend at Hometown Rising in Louisville, Ky., he shared that while no new single is imminent, he plans to have something available for fans soon. To date he has six full-length studio albums and says songs on his next one will have a "vintage" sound.
