Nashville, TN - Grammy® Nominated, Award-Winning Jeff & Sheri Easter, favorites on the popular Gaither Homecoming Tour and Videos, are excited to announce the "PAINT YOUR TOWN PINK" tour for the month of October in celebration of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Concert-goers are invited to dress in pink - men and women - to show their support and local breast cancer charity groups will be invited to each date to bring community awareness to their local group.
This is a very special month for Sheri Easter - she is celebrating over 3 years FREE of breast cancer. Sheri says: "When you get the call, your world stops, and you know your life is changed. I am thankful that I had a wonderful support system of my family and all our wonderful throughout the country and the world. I thank God for his mercy - I am celebrating over 3 years of being free from breast cancer! Showing up to our "PAINT YOUR TOWN PINK" concerts is an opportunity to show your support for the loved ones and friends in your community that are going through cancer." Jeff adds "I'm even gonna wear pink! Real men can wear pink! "
The "PAINT YOUR TOWN PINK" tour makes a stop at the Grand Ole Opry for "Opry Goes Pink" on Saturday, October 22. Jeff & Sheri Easter will team with The Grand Ole Opry® and Women Rock For The Cure™ in the fight against breast cancer for it's third annual "Opry Goes Pink" show. Opry member Martina McBride will flip the switch on the Opry's barn backdrop turning it pink for the night. The special show will include performances by McBride, along with American Idols' Lauren Alaina, Edens Edge, Kellie Pickler, Ronnie Milsap, Jeff & Sheri Easter and others as well as activities recognizing breast cancer survivors. Sheri comments: "It's a special treat to be asked to help turn the Opry pink. Sheri Easter will sign her new book, Hear My Heart, in the Opry Gift Shop prior to the evening show. The book is a collection of writings through the years, including her bout with breast cancer. The book is available at online retailers, book stores and at www.JeffAndSheriEaster.com.
