Rising country music talent Jada Cato, a Birmingham Southern alum, is building soapbox in the genre

The girl never stopped singing. She dropped every instrument she begged to learn how to play. Drums. Piano. She was “super” into them, until she wasn’t. Except her voice. Oh, and the guitar. Jada Cato was a brown girl growing up in then-predominantly white Ellenwood, Georgia—she’ll tell you she’s from Atlanta, then laughingly confesses her hometown is 20 miles south of the city. She is the third of three girls who were always singing and dancing.
