Country Star Colt Ford Sends Emotional Message to Fans Following Heart Attack

Country artist Colt Ford delivered an emotional video message to his fans this week, offering a mixed update on his health following a heart attack he suffered after a show in Gilbert, Ariz., on April 4.

In his message to the nationally syndicated radio show Big D & Bubba, Ford recounted the frightening experience, revealing that he had just returned to his bus and texted his fiancée when the heart attack began. Fortunately, fellow artist Brantley Gilbert was by his side throughout the ordeal.

"I had so much trauma in my body and my heart, I had to have three stents put in," Ford disclosed, acknowledging that his condition was dire. He also mentioned that his gallbladder failed during the ordeal, a detail he only learned days later.

Despite facing overwhelming odds — with doctors giving him a mere 0.1 percent chance of survival — Ford expressed gratitude for the outpouring of support from his fans. While acknowledging the significant progress he's made since the incident, he announced the cancellation of shows through August, indicating that his recovery process would be prolonged.

"I got a long way to go," Ford admitted, expressing his determination to return to the stage eventually. "But I promise you this old country boy will get back."

Although he conceded that his return may not happen this year, Ford reassured his fans that he's determined to make a comeback. "I'm coming back, I promise you," he declared, urging everyone to prioritize their health and thanking them for their unwavering support.

Colt Ford, born Jason Brown, is renowned for pioneering the fusion of country and hip-hop in his music. His influence extends to artists like Brantley Gilbert, Florida Georgia Line, and Jason Aldean, with whom he co-wrote the hit song "Dirt Road Anthem."
