Cady Groves grew up in a family of seven kids in Marlow, Oklahoma — a tiny town just over seven square miles near the Southern border of the state. In addition to giving her a drum kit for Christmas, Groves’ step-dad introduced her to Styx and Lynyrd Skynyrd, while her mom favored Phil Collins and Amy Grant.
At the start of her career, Groves began to post songs she had written and humorous videos on her MySpace page and spent 16 hours a day replying personally to every single person who commented on them, earning her thousands of loyal fans who told her how much they felt she spoke for them. “I was getting messages from people telling me they started crying when they heard ‘Refrain,’ which was about my ex and the first song I ever posted,” she says. “It just an F.U. song to the guy that ruined me.” She channeled her heartbreak into two self-released EP’s: A Month of Sundays, which came out in October 2009, followed by The Life of a Pirate in March 2010. Soon Groves was earning comparisons to Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert, and Never Shout Never for her raw, confessional acoustic tunes.
