LOS ANGELES, April 6: Country music artist Colt Ford, 53, suffered a heart attack following his performance at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row in Gilbert, Arizona, on Thursday night. According to reports from 12News, the singer experienced a medical emergency immediately after concluding his set at the renowned venue.

Ford was swiftly transported to Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa, where he is currently receiving treatment in the Intensive Care Unit. Although his condition is described as stable, he remains in critical condition, as reported by the outlet.

The Post has reached out to representatives of Colt Ford for further comment on the incident.

Ford, known by his real name Jason Farris Brown, is a prominent figure in the country-rap music genre and has collaborated with numerous country music stars over the years. Notably, he co-wrote “Dirt Road Anthem” with Brantley Gilbert, a track later made famous by Jason Aldean on his 2010 album “My Kinda Party.”

Despite his musical success, Ford has faced health challenges in recent years. In 2022, he was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis, a chronic neuromuscular autoimmune disease that primarily affects voluntary muscles. In an interview with Taste of Country in 2023, Ford revealed how the disease had impacted his vision, particularly in his right eye.

Additionally, Ford battled eye cancer, which was detected early, sparing him from full chemotherapy. Following surgery for the condition, he remarkably returned to the stage within days, showcasing his resilience and determination.

Originally pursuing a career as a professional golfer on the Nationwide Tour, Ford ultimately found his passion in country and hip-hop music. His contributions to the industry earned him a nomination for an ACM award in 2011 for Vocal Event of the Year for his collaboration on “Cold Beer” with Jamey Johnson.

Ford’s most recent single, “Beers Back,” featuring DJ Cliffy D and Jesslee, was released not long before his hospitalization. The artist had performances scheduled at venues in Nevada and Arizona over the weekend, which have been affected by his current health condition.
