  • Country singer/songwriter Cady Groves died at age 30, due to "natural causes."

  • A final coroner's report is still pending, but foul play and self-harm have been ruled out.

  • Cady's brother said "she had some medical problems last fall" that may be the cause of death.

Country singer and songwriter Cady Groves has died at age 30. Her older brother, Cody Groves, shared the news via Twitter on May 3, saying that Cady "has left this world."

"Details are limited right now but family is trying to get them and will keep people updated," he wrote. "Rest In Peace little sis."

Groves then tweeted that his sister's death was the result of "natural causes," pending a final coroner's report. Both foul play and self-harm were ruled out by the coroner, Cady's representative told People.

Groves also told Cady's fans that the "This Little Girl" singer had previously been struggling with her health. "She had some medical problems last fall and our best guess at this point until further testing is complete is that they had resurfaced," Groves wrote. "Please respect her name and family before sharing information that did not come directly from here."

He also shared that the Emporia, Kansas native was excited about releasing new music before her death. "[Cady] was really looking forward to the next few months and release of her new album," Groves said. "Our latest in depth conversation (since most were witty banter) was her sending me songs to critique and give feedback on."

Cady had recently signed with the Thirty Tigers record label and planned a summer 2020 release. She'd spent the last year working on new material with the team from Shane McAnally's SMACKSongs, per People. Her rep told the publication that it is hoped the EP she was expected to release this summer will be available soon.

Friends and fans of Cady also shared their condolences and kind messages on Twitter.

"So heartbroken to hear that my friend @cadygroves has passed away," wrote musician Stephen Jerzark. "Rest In Peace 😞."

"Man. I just saw @cadygroves at the airport," said singer Alexander DeLeon. " She gave me the biggest hug I’ve ever received in my life. You were my little sister, Cady. I can’t believe that you’re gone. Rest easy, My friend."

"I've never worked with any songwriter who could open a vein and get vulnerable the way Cady Groves could," remembered Brian Logan Dales. "We wrote a lot of songs together for a while and I was inspired by her time after time. A truly underestimated masterclass of talent. Rest In Peace, old friend."



And one fan wrote, "I’m so sorry...she was a bright light for everyone, including me. My thoughts are with you and your family."

Cady's rep also told People that those closest to her "want people to know she loved music, laughter, cooking, tacos and, especially, her family."

And in lieu of flowers, Cady's family has asked that donations be made in her name to the Music Health Alliance or MusiCares.
