At the same time, working in merchandising sales for John Stone, Tootises Label Artist. She toured with John Stone known for “Momma and Budweiser”, “Shame On Me” and “We All Feel The Pain” and Craig Morgan who is known for “That’s What I Love About Sundays”, “Redneck Yacht Club” and “International Harvester”. On tour, Cadie met Grammy nominated Producer/Engineer, Aaron Rodgers. Through her relationship with Aaron, she found her sound with her voice and learned the mechanics of engineering and the language of music. This led to the creation of the CADIE CALHOUN BAND. The band’s first big break was playing at the 29th Annual Southern Miss Coca-Cola Classic Rodeo in Hattiesburg, hosted by the University of Southern Mississippi. Then there was the SOLD OUT hometown concert at Brewsky’s that same weekend! She also sang at the Veteran’s and Memorial Day Ceremonies from 2006-2016 for her Hattiesburg as well. In NASHVILLE, the band played at all the legendary downtown Honky Tonks like: Tootsies, Rippy’s, Silver Dollar Saloon, Famous Saloon, Honky Tonk Central, Tequila Cowboy, Big Shotz and the Nashville Palace.
Cadie credits her musical talents to the strong faith and the extensive support from her family, especially her parents, Dr. Paul and Stephani Calhoun. Cadie firmly believes that her renewed confidence in herself stems from her strong, faith based family and a connection to God. These factors combined with the continued love and extensive support from her parents have enabled her to hone in on her craft. Cadie has been able to produce a truly unique sound; however, without these elements of support it would not have come to fruition. It has reconnected her to her belief in herself. She is very excited about this album to be released in February 28th, 2019.
