As the Grand Ole Opry® nears its historic 5,000th Saturday night broadcast on October 30th, the show that made country music famous once again joins together with Susan G. Komen® in the fight against breast cancer with Opry Goes Pink on Tuesday, October 19th.

American Idol season 10 runner-up Lauren Alaina, who recently debuted her new album Sitting Pretty On Top of the World, will flip the switch on the Opry’s signature barn backdrop, turning it pink for the night.

“I know first-hand how devastating cancer can be to a family,” shared Lauren. “Breast cancer in particular can be a difficult diagnosis. I am honored to bring awareness to this cause on my favorite stage in the world.”

Lauren’s step-father Sam Ramker died after a battle with stage 4 melanoma in October 2018. Ramker was the husband of Lauren’s mother, Kristy Suddeth.

Beginning today when fans order tickets, $5 from every ticket sold will be donated to Susan G. Komen® for the fight against breast cancer. Tickets are available at and at (800) SEE-OPRY.

Additional artists scheduled to perform include Dillon Carmichael, Maddie and Tae, Del McCoury Band, Victoria Shaw and Dusty Slay.
