Country Music Star Suffers Massive Heart Attack after Performance

Country music singer and rapper Colt Ford was rushed to hospital shortly after his performance in Arizona on Thursday after suffering a heart attack.

The “Dirt Road Anthem” star was playing at Dierks Bently’s Whiskey Row when he suddenly suffered a heart attack and is now in the intensive care unit at Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa in critical condition.

The singer, who has several No. 1 hits under his belt, has worked with other stars, including Jake Owen, Walker Hayes, Chase Rice, Toby Keith, Lady A, and Willie Nelson.

The Blaze reported:

It appears this is not the first time Ford has suffered from health issues. In 2022, he was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis, which is a chronic muscular autoimmune disease that causes muscle weakness. Ford said the illness affected his eye more than it did his throat or face.

“It hadn’t really affected my throat, but it really affected my eye. I had no control over my right eye,” Colt shared with Taste of Country in 2023.

“It really messes with your vision. I could see perfectly out of either eye, but then I would look together and I’d see three of you and you would be melting together like a lava lamp.”

Just a year before that, Ford was diagnosed with eye cancer but avoided having to undergo chemotherapy because it was detected early on, according to People Magazine.

“The doctor told me I was a week to 10 days from having to go on full chemo.”

He underwent surgery following the diagnosis and performed just a few days later. Ford was reportedly a professional golfer before he ultimately turned to country music and hip-hop.

Though Ford was set to perform at two other venues — in Nevada and Arizona — the shows have been canceled.

Ford has previously said:

“I know darn well that God never puts anything on you that you can’t handle, but the Lord might have a lot more confidence in me than I thought.”
