Kellie Pickler Helps GMA Go Pink

Kellie Pickler

Kellie Pickler appeared on Good Morning America earlier today to help kick off “GMA Goes Pink” in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

By her side this morning was one of Kellie’s best friends, Summer. Summer was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, and Kellie had joined her friend in shaving her head in support and solidarity. Over a year later, we are so happy that Summer is doing well now. Kellie posted on her Facebook page that Summer has a few rounds of chemotherapy left, but is cancer free! Amazing news… stay strong, Summer!

Breast Cancer awareness is a cause near and dear to my heart. My amazing mom passed away from this terrible disease in July so this is all very personal to me.

Kellie is and always has been a class act, and she has all of our respect. Thank-you Kellie and GMA for helping to bring awareness!

Watch Kellie’s GMA appearance and performance of “Someone Somewhere Tonight” below. The song will be included on her new album, The Woman I Am, which drops on November 11th.

For all of the Breast Cancer fighters and survivors out there, you are amazingly strong & keep fighting!

Reba Designs Pink Boots For Breast Cancer Awareness

Reba

Country music artists make me proud to be a fan. Several artists are lending a hand to the fight against breast cancer, and Reba is helping to lead the way.

In honor of breast cancer awareness month, Reba Footwear has partnered with the Brown Shoe Company to donate $20,000 to Susan G. Komen For The Cure. To support the initiative and honor all of those affected by the disease, Reba Footwear has designed and dedicated a special limited edition pink cowboy boot called “Collins.” The line is sold exclusively through Dilard’s.

Join the fight against breast cancer, and as Reba says “Give cancer the boot.”

On October 22nd, the Grand Old Opry is joining Women Rock For The Cure in the fight against breast cancer by hosting its 3rd annual “Opry Goes Pink” event. Country music superstar and Opry member, Martina McBride, will headline the show and flip the switch on the Opry’s barn backdrop turning it pink for the night. Opry.com will also go pink for the day.

McBride’s current single, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It”, is very fitting for the cause. The song is one of hope and inspiration to those who have fought or are battling cancer, and their loved ones.

Other artists taking the stage for the special event include: Kellie Pickler, Lauren Alaina, Edens Edge, and Ronnie Milsap.

Tickets can be purchased on the Grand Ole Opry website. $5 from every ticket will be donated to Women Rock For The Cure. The show starts at 7 p.m.

In addition, Opry.com will be hosting an online auction starting October 18th. All proceeds will also benefit Women Rock For The Cure.
