Arizona Bike Week – Update

Country singer and rapper Colt Ford, 54, has been hospitalized after experiencing a heart attack following a performance in Arizona during Arizona Bike Week.

As of Friday afternoon, Ford is stable but in critical condition and is resting in ICU. Ford was scheduled to perform at the Star of the Desert Arena in Primm, Nevada, on Friday night. He said the condition affected his vision to the point that he had no control over his right eye.  Ford also revealed he dealt with fatigue while playing his shows but had been put on supplements by his doctor which were “really helping” him at the time.

He and Brantley Gilbert co-wrote “Dirt Road Anthem,” which the duo recorded initially before Jason Aldean made the song famous on his 2010 album “My Kinda Party.”
Ford has collaborated with various stars, including Jake Owen, Chase Rice, Walker Hayes, Toby Keith, Lady A, and Willie Nelson.

In 2022, Ford was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis, a chronic neuromuscular autoimmune disease that causes weakness in the voluntary muscles.

A name that resonates with the soul of the open road, the rumble of engines, and the camaraderie of fellow bikers. Colt Ford is a staple entertainer at motorcycle events and rallies nationwide.

I know this biker community joins me in prayers for Colt Ford and his family, and we look forward to seeing him down the road.
