Kacey Musgraves might not be Pageant Material, but she's certainly Grand Ole Opry material. For this year's seventh annual "Opry Goes Pink" show, slated for Tues. (Oct. 27), in a partnership with Women Rock for the Cure, the witty singer-songwriter will be joining the lineup to bring awareness to breast cancer and survivors. Opry members like Terri Clark and Montgomery Genrey are also expected to attend and show their support. “We’re excited to mark our seventh year of Opry Goes Pink,” Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher says in a statement released Thursday (Sept. 24). “What began as a partnership to put together a single show to raise funds and awareness to fight breast cancer has become an annual Opry tradition. Like so many others out there, we at the Opry will not stop supporting this fight until not a single life is lost to breast cancer.”
Tickets are now on-sale, with $5 from each ticket benefiting the Women Rock for the Cure initiative. Fans can grab tickets right here. General Opry performances continue through Dec. 15 for the season.
Anchored by her single "Biscuits," Musgraves' sophomore LP Pageant Material arrived this summer to wide-spread critical acclaim and features other standout cuts like "Good Ol Boys Club," "This Town," "Somebody to Love," "High Time," "Fine" and her brand new single "Dime Store Cowgirl." Despite virtually no radio airplay, she has managed to attractive a diverse fan base. The record arrived with 60,000 total album-equavalent units (55,000 cold album sales), for a No. 1 bow on Billboard's Top Country Albums and a No. 3 placement on the Billboard 200 (all-genre) scoreboard.
That's a significant rise for a female artist in the mainstream market. Her stellar Same Trailer Different Park debuted with 42,000 copies in 2013. Since then, she's stretched far outside the Music Row bubble to find opportunities, including a slot on Katy Perry's Prismatic World tour for a string of concerts in August 2014.
