The wait is nearly over for the premiere of the music video for Cady Groves’ catchy pop jam “This Little Girl” (check back here tomorrow to watch it). And by now fans of the 21-year-old singer know that country crooner Blake Shelton makes a cameo in the clip. We hit up the set of the video shoot, and wrangled a little one-on-one time with the feisty Oklahoman. Head below to watch Cady discuss the dramatic story behind her debut single, and how she got Blake to appear in her video.
In addition to opening up about the heartache that inspired “This Little Girl,” Cady reveals that Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill is the album that has meant the most to her in her life. “Even at four or five or six years old, I got what she was saying because of the emotion she put into what she was singing,” Groves told us.
Another one of her idols: Blake Shelton’s fellow coach on The Voice, Christina Aguilera. “I remember standing on top of my dresser that had a mirror on it and performing Christina Aguilera songs,” Cady said. Now, all these years later, both Cady and Christina share the same label (RCA).
