Rascal Flatts Help the Opry Turn Pink for Breast Cancer
The Grand Ole Opry is getting in on the fight against breast cancer. Rascal Flatts stopped by the iconic Nashville venue on Tuesday (Oct. 28) to literally flip the switch that turns the Opry pink.
The Opry teamed up with Women Rock for the Cure to raise awareness -- and money -- for breast cancer. They invited Rascal Flatts to get things started, but several other artists were in attendance.
One touching moment of the evening came when Montgomery Gentry's Troy Gentry had a special guest come to the stage. His wife, Angie, just recently announced she's been diagnosed with the disease. The audience welcomed her with a standing ovation before Gentry performed 'Hell and High Water' by T. Graham Brown especially for her.
Terri Clark, Montgomery Gentry, Danielle Bradbery, Sara Evans, the Isaacs and Will Chase from 'Nashville' all performed during the special evening. It was Chase's Opry debut and he performed alongside Evans for 'Put My Heart Down.'
The evening didn't just raise awareness for breast cancer and its survivors, though. They also raised money to help the fight. A portion of the proceeds raised during the evening were donated to Women Rock for the Cure, a Nashville-based organization that helps support women who are battling the disease. They head this annual event as well as the Pink Trash Ball.
