What Is Cade Foehner’s Net Worth?

Cade Foehner is an American musician who has a net worth of $1 million. He is best known for his appearance on the sixteenth season of American Idol, where he made it to the top five, before he was eliminated.

On July 24, 1996, Cade was born in Shelby County, Texas, to his Christian mother, Kelly Foehner, and father.

Little is known about his father as he appears to keep this information private.

Foehner has two older sisters named Blaine (Foehner) Goodwyn and Krystina (Foehner) Lout.

From a young age, Cade became interested in singing and songwriting so much that he would spend hours every night singing until his voice would go hoars.

His parents recognized his interest and talent for singing, so they encouraged him to join the Church’s choir group. 

Foehner particularly credits his mom for dedicating her time and effort to helping him hone his musical skills.

He expressed to her from a young age that it was his dream to become a singer, so she dedicated a lot of her time to guide him in the industry. 

One of Cade’s favorite bands is Led Zeplin, and he takes inspiration from them. He is primarily influenced by Jimmy Page, the guitarist, and Robert Plant, the lead singer.

Cade graduated high school in 2015 and shortly after attended Panola College, a community college in Carthage, Texas.

In 2018, Cade enrolled at Liberty University, where he pursued an online B.S. in Biblical Theology and is preparing to be a pastor alongside his music career.


While he was a contestant on American Idol in 2018, Foehner met Gabby Barrett, and they began dating.

In 2016, Cade tried out for season 11 of The Voice and moved past the first audition.

Unfortunately, he did not make it beyond the first round of performances.

Foehner was determined to make his mark in the music industry and refused to let this failure bring him down.

In 2018, he auditioned for American Idol season 16 in Dallas, Texas, where he auditioned with two songs, one from the Black Keys and the other from Elton John. Needless to say, the casting directors were blown away. 

He was not only successful in the auditions, but he also made it to the top five and became one of Katy Perry’s favorite and popular contestants.

The last live song Foehner played for the judges was, Undo It, by Carrie Underwood.  

While on the show, he covered many other hit songs such as; The Thrill is Gone by B.B. King, Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman by Bryan Adams, Make it Rain by Ed Sheeran, and Black Majic Woman by Fleetwood Mac, which are all uploaded to Cade’s personal YouTube page.

After his success with American Idol, Cade seemed to struggle with grasping his new life as a famous musician.

In an interview with Kicks 105, he referred to public recognition as an “odd thing,” and he can “understand how it can definitely take people down.”

When Cade left American Idol, he decided to take his experience, and what he had learned to start a solo singing career.
