And the young singer was peaking in her career as a country musician with her whole life ahead of her.

Born in Marlow, Oklahoma...

Cady was born into a very big family with 6 siblings and 3 half-siblings.

Growing up, the young woman always had a passion for music.

She would apparently sing along to her favorite songs, such as Christina Aguilera's  "Genie in a Bottle", inside her closet so her family wouldn't hear her.

Even though she graduated from high school at sixteen and spoke to her parents about her passion to pursue a songwriting career...

They didn't approve and they encouraged their daughter to go to college and study something else.

She ended up at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Scottsdale, Arizona.

However, she continued to pursue songwriting as a full-time career.

The death of her twenty-eight-year-old brother spurred her ambition along even more...

And this made the young talent more determined than ever to succeed.

Initially, Cady wasn't interested in singing her own songs...

And she wanted to write songs to present to other artists.

But when an artist failed to turn up to the recording studio one day in 2009...

Cady had no choice but to step in and this ultimately led to her first EP, A Month of Sundays.

Another EP, The Life of a Pirate, followed in 2010.

It was in this year when Cady started to become a recognized artist on social media and she slowly began to build a strong fanbase.

She is best recognized for certain songs...

Such as 2012's "This Little Girl" and her most recent 2017 single, "Oil and Water."

So it's safe to say...

The young woman made quite a career for herself and her talent was undeniable.

But then tragic news emerged.

On Saturday the 2nd of May 2020, Cady Groves passed away.

Her brother, Cody Groves, was the one to announce this terrible news.

"Cady Groves has left this world. Details are limited right now but family is trying to get them and will keep people updated. Rest In Peace little sis. Hope you're reunited with Kelly Groves and Casey," he wrote on Twitter.

Cody later returned with a longer post.

"I hate that I even have to do this, but apparently the world and internet is a cluster of twisted misinformation," he wrote in a statement posted to Twitter several hours after his initial announcement. "In my original post I had stated we had no information to try and prevent that, but to expel rumors I will provide an update. The medical examiner has completed the autopsy and there was no indication of foul play or self-harm. Simply put, Cady Groves died of natural causes."

Cady had been working on new material.

Cody also said that his sister "was really looking forward to the next few months and release of her new album" and added, "Our latest in-depth conversation (since most were witty banter) was her sending me songs to critique and give feedback on."

Cady had previously suffered from underlying medical conditions...

"She had some medical problems last fall and our best guess at this point until further testing is complete is that they had resurfaced. Please respect her name and family before sharing information that did not come directly from here," Cody continued.

But now her cause of death has been confirmed.

According to the coroner, Cady died as a result of chronic alcohol abuse, listing ‘chronic ethanol abuse’ as the cause of death.

She suffered from other things too.

Such as cirrhosis of the liver and 'severe chronic pancreatitis', the Daily Mail reports.

She was found unresponsive in bed.

Her roommate discovered Cady's body shortly before she was pronounced dead.

She had alcohol in her system.

However it was only a blood alcohol level of .01 which is considered a small amount.

Police added.

That there were signs of alcohol use at the home...

Her family wishes for privacy and respect during this unimaginable time.

An official release about Cady's death also states, "Her death appears to be from natural causes, pending a final coroner’s report. Foul play and self-harm have both been ruled out by the coroner."

Tributes poured in for the young woman...

It's clear she's left behind a strong family and friend unit who are all mourning her death.

Rest in Peace, Cady.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to her family during this difficult time.
