Singer-songwriter Cady Groves has died at age 30 in her Tennessee home. According to a statement from her label, Grove's death appeared to be a result of natural causes pending a final coroner's report, with foul play and self-harm ruled out by the coroner's office.
Born on July 30, 1989, in Oklahoma, Groves had early dreams of being a pop star, launching her career in 2009 with the independently released EP, A Month of Sundays, followed the next year by The Life of a Pirate EP and the This Little Girl EP in 2012. She signed with independent label Vel Records, releasing the single "Crying Game" in 2015, followed by her debut EP later that year, Dreams. Her most recent single was 2017's "Oil and Water."
According to a statement from Vel, Groves had been working on new material with the team from Shane McAnally's SMACKSongs for the past year and had recently signed with the Thirty Tigers label, with plans to release another mini-album this summer; current plans call for the EP to be available soon.
