Luke Bryan is joining forces with the Grand Ole Opry in the fight against breast cancer.

The four-time Entertainer of the Year will appear at the Opry on Tuesday, October 22 for a two-show edition of the Opry Goes Pink. The Georgia native will mark the occasion by flipping the switch on the Opry’s signature barn backdrop, turning it pink for the evening.

To make the night even more special, Bryan, who is celebrating a two-week No.1 with his latest hit, “Knockin’ Boots,” will take the stage during both shows for a rare acoustic performance.

“I wanted to make this Opry appearance something special,” shared Bryan in a press release. “Performing in the Opry circle is unlike any other stage in the world and I want it to be a unique memory for me and the fans.”

Anita Cochran, Sara Evans, Craig Morgan and the Oak Ridge Boys are also slated to appear at the Grand Ole Opry that evening.

Starting today, $5 from every ticket sold for the Opry Goes Pink shows will be donated to Susan G Komen® for the fight against breast cancer. Tickets for the 7 pm show are on sale now, with tickets for the 9:30 pm show going on sale Thursday at 10 am. Tickets are available at opry.com and at (800) SEE-OPRY.
