Cady Groves, a country singer known for songs such as “The Little Girl” and “Love Actually,” has passed away at age 30.
Sunday on Twitter, Cady’s big brother Cody announced the heartbreaking news that his sister “left this world.”
“Details are limited right now but family is trying to get them and will keep people updated,” Cody wrote. “Rest In Peace little sis.”
Cody also hoped that Cady is reunited with their brothers Casey and Kelly, who both — as reported by The Oklahoman — died from drug overdoses.

Cady’s shocking death comes weeks after the Oklahoma-born musician opened up about her mental health in a candid Instagram post dated April 15.
“I don’t have a television, so I’ve had to REALLY just be alone with myself and my thoughts and fears and anxiety in my bedroom without anybody here in Nashville,” Cady wrote about being quarantined in Tennessee amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“Some days my mental health is AWFUL. I feel completely alone and scared and far from everyone I love and all I can do is keep myself busy and push through. Some days are better,” she continued, adding, “But it’s also okay to take it day by day-like I did today-and have hope. My heart is with you all.”

Week..6? Haven’t left my house but about 3 times and that was just to drive around in my car so I wouldn’t go insane. I don’t have a television, so I’ve had to REALLY just be alone with myself and my thoughts and fears and anxiety in my bedroom without anybody here in Nashville. Some days my mental health is AWFUL. I feel completely alone and scared and far from everyone I love and all I can do is keep myself busy and push through. Some days are better. I know that the way I feel isn’t special because we are ALL living through this separately, but together. It’s okay to be scared and to have days where you just cry and wear your hair in a bun and don’t change out of your pajamas. But it’s also okay to take it day by day-like I did today-and have hope. My heart is with you all. ❤️
The day before, Cady tweeted that she felt “defeated,” as it felt like the “beginning of the world ending.”
Kinda just starting to feel like we are all waking up every day looking out the window at the beginning of the world ending. Clearly this has all got me feeling defeated.— cady groves (@cadygroves) April 15, 2020
However, in a Facebook statement also posted to his Twitter page, Cody shot down the “cluster of twisted misinformation” and revealed that Cady’s autopsy revealed “no indication of foul play or self harm.”
“Simply put, Cady Groves died of natural causes,” Cody exclaimed, adding that his sister had “medical problems last fall” which he and his family believe may have resurfaced.
“Cady was really looking forward to the next few months and release of her new album,” he concluded. “Our latest in-depth conversation (since most were witty banter) was her sending me songs to critique and give feedback on.”
Our condolences go out to the Groves family for their tragic loss.
