Country music legend Dolly Parton took the stage to perform an hour of her hits during the First Annual Kiss Breast Cancer Goodbye concert, held Sunday, October 24, at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s CMA Theater in Nashville, TN. This was Dolly’s first full show since 2016. She was joined by her long-time musical director, producer and guitarist, Kent Wells, for an intimate hour-long acoustic performance to help raise money and awareness for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Prior to the concert, Dolly shared,

“I am thrilled to be performing some of my greatest hits with my friend Kent for such a worthy cause. Breast cancer has touched every single one of us in some capacity, so I am thankful for Donna Wells asking me to be part of this event. I hope we can raise some good money and help fight this horrible disease, so bring your checkbooks.”

The evening of music and celebration also featured performances from Dennis Quaid, Collin Raye, Linda Davis, Artimus Pyle and Nelson, with special guests Todd and Julie Chrisley.

Supporting Breast Cancer Research

Dolly’s headlining performance at the inaugural Kiss Breast Cancer Goodbye benefit comes a year after teaming up with Rita Wilson, Jordin Sparks, Sara Evans and Monica for “Pink,” an inspiring ballad with a message of hope for people battling breast cancer. The star-studded song debuted on October 24, 2020, at the Grand Ole Opry, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the song goes to Susan G. Komen in support of the mission to save lives from this disease.

A new single, “Pink” features Dolly Parton and other artists in an inspiring effort to aid breast cancer research.

Dolly Parton, Sara Evans, Monica, Jordin Sparks and Rita Wilson, have collaborated on a new single with an inspiring message of empowerment to those touched by breast cancer. According to the Susan G. Komen website each of these women shares a connection to this cause through a close friend or family member who has been affected. In the song, “Pink,” these ladies sing about a triumph day when the color can simply be a color and not a symbol. Dolly said,

“This is such a beautiful song of hope. I’m honored to join with these powerful women to help support Susan G. Komen’s life-saving work.”

In an article by MusicRow, Paula Schneider, CEO of Susan G. Komen and a breast cancer survivor said,

“In a single moment, a person’s life changes forever – there is life before breast cancer, and life after. We are extremely honored that these powerful women have leant their time and talents to help us advance our mission and give a moment of hope to everyone impacted by breast cancer. Together, we will save lives and get closer to a world without breast cancer.”

“PINK” was co-written by Victoria Shaw, Erin Kinsey and Jodi Marr, and produced by Shaw. The song will be distributed via Brighter Day Records. The moving video was directed by Trey Fanjoy.
