Martina McBride, Kellie Pickler, Eden’s Edge and Lauren Alaina were some of the stars at last night’s Grand Ole Opry show. It was a special night at the Opry, where the ladies of country music helped turn the historic venue pink for breast cancer awareness. Martina flipped the switch on the first show of the evening, and Kellie had her turn for the second show.
The third annual “Opry Goes Pink” was hosted by ABC’s Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts. She introduced the “Women Rock For The Cure” survivor of the year Yolanda Smith.
Watch the video below of Martina’s emotional new single, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It,” which was one of the highlights of the night:
