Cady Danyl Groves

July 30, 1989May 2, 2020

Cady Danyl Groves entered this world on July 30, 1989. She was born in Newman Memorial Hospital in Emporia, Kansas. Sadly, and long before her time, Cady left this world on May 2, 2020 in Brentwood, Tennessee where she was residing at the time. She was a 30-yearold singer/songwriter at the time of her death. Cady was the youngest of seven siblings and brought much joy to the lives of her family. Cady had many passions in life including music, making others laugh, and cooking. Cady loved her family, friends, and tacos and she could brighten anyone’s day with her smile. Cady’s family moved from Emporia, Kansas to Marlow, Oklahoma in 1993 and made a few other moves before landing in Laughlin, Nevada, where she graduated from high school, a year early, in 2006. She first pursued her love of cooking by completing a culinary arts program at Mohave Valley Community College in 2007. Cady later attended classes at Southwestern Oklahoma State University, but after feeling unfulfilled, decided it was time to pursue her passion for music. She began writing lyrics and working on her voice. Cady would often say that she just knew she was meant to reach people, and felt that she could do it through her music.

Cady spent years speaking out on social media and trying to form a personal relationship with her fans using funny videos, music, and heartfelt messages. In 2009, that dream was fulfilled for Cady when members of the music community recognized her voice and she was signed to a major label.

Cady is survived by her mother, Carol Ann Petitt and four siblings, Kevan, Cody, Kyle, and Kelsy plus half siblings Courtney, Adam, and Carrie. She was also a proud aunt to a couple handfuls of nieces and nephews. Her beloved brothers, Casey Groves and Kelly Groves, precede her in death.

Her family will lay Cady to rest at an undisclosed time and location. Services in honor of Cady are pending due to current pandemic and will be scheduled when it becomes socially responsible to do so.

Although I never meet Cady face to face, she was always so kind online to me. We talked a bit a few years back and video chatted a few times. She never failed to make me laugh and smile. Sending you family all the love in the world right now and I know that you are safe now up in heaven with Kelly and Casey xx

There was just something about Cady that made her feel like a friend you’ve known for years, even if you may never had met her face-to-face. She was kind hearted and wore her heart out on her sleeve. I know the many times that she had made my day and helped with my anxiety just by something she would post on social media or send as dm. She really had a heart for others. Her music and life have touched many, have uplifted many and have been able to put into words the things that others may not have been able to say, but were feeling. Her heart, honesty and compassion were always apparent as well as the love she had for her mom and family. Her cooking videos were always happy and full of life and I always looked forward to them. Cady, you will be missed greatly by so many. Thank you for always being you. You touched more lives than I think you could ever imagine. Heaven has gained a beautiful soul.

I saw Cady play live at Six Flags about 10 years ago and I instantly fell in love with her. I always appreciated how honest and real she was with her fans. Even when things got difficult, she was somehow positive and kind. I will miss seeing her update with some funny and witty post. My heart goes out to her mama and siblings.

Unfortunately I never had the chance to meet Cady, just a fan since around 2009/2010. Cady’s music and personality touch me in a way that I don’t think many do. Cady taught me having a personality was an amazing thing and that I had been reserved because I thought that’s what I was supposed to do. Her song Life of a Pirate was the first time I realized I didn’t have to have this life like everyone else had and there were people like me who didn’t want a generic/ traditional life. I’m sad I never got a real chance to thank her for the impact she made on some strangers life.

Cady had the most beautiful heart. Her songs helped me through so much and still do. I’m devastated of her passing and wish nothing but peace and love to her family and friends. She is gone way too soon, but will be remembered forever through her funny videos, silly quotes, beautiful pictures, and incredible music. Fly high sweet angel, and look down on us all ♥️

Cady's voice was from heaven. However her heart was from the highest heaven. I loved eveverything about this young lady. She was a faithful church member and a servant of God. Her love for her fam was off the charts. Pretty soon we will join her in that great place God has promised.

I started listening to Cady’s music in high school, over ten years ago. I always thought she was so pretty and her voice was so unique! Her music was often on my stereo/car radio. I also had my walls covered in magazine cut outs of all the bands and singers I listened to, Cady was included. Her passing has broken my heart and her voice will forever be in my life. I still listen to her music often. Gone way too soon but her voice will live on and it has changed so many lives ♥️ Rest in Paradise Cady. We love you.

I started listening to Cady’s music in 2009 when I was just a shy little emo kid in high school. I think there was a solid few weeks where I just listened to her music and nothing else. I worked up the nerve to contact her through MySpace to see if she would shoot with me when she came to Florida again on tour and she said she’d love to. Unfortunately I couldn’t make it because her show fell on a school day for me. Fast forward to 8 years later when we reconnected. She remembered me and we decided to finally meet in person and have our long awaited photo shoot. We had both recently moved to Nashville and immediately hit it off. Between laughing at weird things we like to planning all the buffets we were going to hit we knew we found a friend in each other. Cady, I am so sad that you’ve passed on. It is so unreal. I just talked to you in March which now seems like an eternity ago. You were such a ball of light and such a talented person. I know you were working on your new album and I truly hope we get to hear what you made. I saw such an amazing future for you. I just knew you were going to go so far and take the whole city. I am so appreciative and thankful of the time I had with you. I don’t think anything happens as a coincidence. I know we were suppose to meet. I hope you’re somewhere peaceful and with your family.
This was my favorite photo we took. Love you Cady ❤️
