Cady Groves: Recently I conquered the fear of being alone. Isn't that weird? Some people are terrified of it. I used to be one of them. But to make the decision to make it or break it on your own is such a big decision. Everything is on you, either way it goes. But it's also putting a lot of faith and work into yourself, which if you do right can have major rewards.
CG: My biggest mentor in life so far is my brother, who I recently lost at 28 years old. I've lost two brothers so I guess it's actually a tie. People say you never teach more lessons than when you're gone. That's very true. I think only because people are scraping for anything left of you to listen to. Regardless, I've learned major lessons and credit a lot of my drive to the both of them in very separate ways.
CG: The biggest lesson I learned in my 20s is that every single person in this world makes mistakes and has a sob story. You can't fix anyone but yourself.
CG: My best feature is probably that I don't know how to give up on myself. My biggest insecurity is also the same answer.
CG: I'm still trying to break into the industry. It's incredibly humbling, to say the least. There are more times you want to quit than not.
CG: I want to never lie about who I feel like I am, ever, and never lie about my mistakes and finding my way back from them. It's the entire reason I started writing songs — to sort out mistakes and try to make sense of everything. I want not just girls, but everyone to know that it's OK to be you and stay you, and that's never wrong.
CG: I'm not sure what people think about me. It's not my job to worry about that, because that can drive you crazy. I have my head down working on music.
CG: The hardest obstacle I've endured is to always stay true to myself no matter what the situation.
CG: I think women and men rule. They both rule. Sex doesn't matter. Life matters. If you write a song that makes me feel anything, you rule.
