Carrie, Terri Clark, Jo Dee Messina, Lorrie Morgan, Mindy Smith and other artists performed during the Opry’s special “Opry Goes Pink” weekend shows, and breast cancer survivor Robin Roberts of ABC-TV’s Good Morning America appeared as a guest announcer. A portion of the proceeds from “Opry Goes Pink” was earmarked for Women Rock for the Cure and the local affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
