The Judds go pink for Opry
Friday, October 8, 2010
– Wynonna & Naomi Judd will appear at The Grand Ole Opry in support of Women Rock For The Cure and Susan G. Komen for the Cure in the fight against breast cancer on Friday, Oct. 15.
The duo will "flip the switch" to help the Opry's signature barn backdrop turn pink for its second annual "Opry Goes Pink" show.
FOX News anchor Greta Van Susteren will be on hand as a guest announcer for a portion of the night's show, including The Judds introduction to the audience. In addition to The Judds, the show will include performances by John Anderson, Joey + Rory, Marty Stuart and others as well as special activities recognizing breast cancer survivors and the continuing fight against the disease.
When fans mention the code OPRYPINK when ordering tickets via telephone (800-SEE-OPRY) or enter the same code when purchasing tickets online (opry.com), $5 from the sale of those tickets will be donated to Women Rock For The Cure and the Greater Nashville affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Pink Packages including Opry tickets, a meet and greet with The Judds, and a Judds-autographed "Opry Goes Pink" print (package components dependent upon price level), are also available benefiting the two charities. Package information can be found at opry.com.

Concert Review: Daniels wears out bows, but music endures
After each of the first few songs Charlie Daniels played, his 'fiddle tech (?)' exchanged his bow. Is this because he was playing particularly hard? Perhaps. Whatever the case, Daniels and his five-piece band clearly appeared to be giving it their all during the act's hour-and-a-half set.
As it is the Christmas month, Daniels sang a... »»»
