The country music star Colt Ford is opening up about the heart attack that he suffered last month after performing in Phoenix, Arizona, saying that he “died two times.”

Ford ‘Died Two Times’

While appearing on the Big D & Bubba radio show, Ford, 54, revealed that he has no recollection of the entire night of his heart attack.

“I didn’t even remember coming out here to do a show in Phoenix, and apparently we played this great, sold-out show and it was incredible,” he recalled. “I walked back to the bus, texted my fiancée, ‘Hi baby,’ and fell over dead.”

“I died two times,” he added. “Luckily, my band came out to check on me. … All of a sudden, that’s when all hell broke loose.”  

After the text to his fiancée, Ford admitted, “I don’t remember anything.”

Ford was told afterwards that he was transferred to another hospital that could provide better care, and he “died on the way over” to that facility, but paramedics “brought me back, saved my life.” 

“The Lord had more for me to do, more music for me to make, hopefully more differences to make in some people’s lives,” he continued.

Ford Beats The Odds

When Ford woke up two days later, his doctor told him, “I wouldn’t have given you 1%, I would have given you 0.1% that you would have survived.”

“I had so much trauma to my body and my heart, they had to put three stents in,” Ford revealed.  “There’s just so much going on, and then all of a sudden my gall bladder crapped out on me.” 

One month later, Ford is just grateful to have a second chance at life.

“The overwhelming support and love I have felt … I get emotional talking about it. I have been an emotional wreck since I’ve been in here,” he said. “It’s been life changing. It’s been spiritually changing.”

“Obviously, it’s been physically changing,” he added. “It’s just been a crazy. … I’m not still a hundred percent out of the woods yet. I’m gonna have to learn how to be a little selfish for a while before I get myself better.”

“This changed my perspective and outlook on lots of things. Live every day like it’s your last because one day it will be,” Ford concluded. “I’m gonna try to come back bigger and stronger and better than ever.”

Fox 5 Atlanta reported that Ford suffered his heart attack on April 3 after performing at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row in Arizona. He broke his silence about this three weeks later in a video for his fans that he posted to Instagram.

“I just want to tell you guys, thank y’all for all the prayers, the love, the comments,” Ford said in the video. “The messages I got a long way to go, but I promise you this ol’ country boy will get back. It probably won’t be this year, and I hate I gotta miss all these shows, but I’m coming back.”
