Before the Fame
First things first, we have to point out what a good-looking family the Foehners are!
Cade Foehner was born on July 24, 1997, in east Texas. And after some serious snooping around, we found out that he is the youngest of his siblings, sisters Blaine Goodwyn and Krystina Lout.
According to his American Idol bio videos, Cade was raised simply on a 100-acre farm in Shelbyville, Texas. He was a rodeo cowboy up until the age of 13.
Singing came naturally Cade, which he’s been doing for some time now. But growing up in the country did not give him all the opportunities he needed to make it big.
Cade Foehner’s Instagram and Facebook accounts are full of his songs and band practices. And he is here to bring rock ‘n’ roll back!
The rocker’s idols are Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. He is a big fan of The Black Crowes, too.
This Texan knows his rock. But he loves to give it some Southern spice!
Cade’s mother, Kelly Foehner, is a teacher at Center Elementary School. She has been his biggest support, and he makes sure he conveys that to her on his Instagram account.
The musician’s family has been promoting him on social media ever since Cade Foehner auditioned for American Idol. They are confident that he will reach new heights now.
“When I saw him walk out with that golden ticket, it was like he made it. He did it,” Blaine Goodwyn said. “I’m crying now thinking of it. He finally got the yes he needed to keep him going. It was motivation.”
Rock God of the Millennium?
American Idol is not the first competition Cade has entered. His social media account states that he has been a part of The Voice season 11. He was also a Dallas International Guitar Festival’s 10 Under 20 contestant and Louisiana Music Prize finalist.

Bringing Back the Magic of Rock
Cade’s American Idol journey began when he auditioned for the competition in August 2017 in Dallas. Since then, he has been leaving everyone who listens to him starry-eyed and nostalgic, transporting them back to the ‘60s and ‘70s!
In a music industry where EDM and pop are very popular, Cade brings rock back to its glory. He feels that his music adds dynamic to the genre, which is kind of lost. And, we agree!
Cade has already been proclaimed the “rock god” of 2018. His American Idol performances at the Solo Round, the Top 24 Selection Round, and the Top 24 Solos have been proof enough that he is a singer to watch.
The judge’s expressions after watching Cade’s performance in the clip below says it all:
The musician’s talents are not just limited to rock. Cade also sings in choirs from time to time, and his “Hallelujah” rendition on the piano was perfect in every way.
With 27k followers on Instagram alone, Cade is making it big one step at a time. And those on his social media accounts are sure he’s going to win American Idol this season.
