Country music fans were rocked when  news broke that Colt Ford, the beloved country star, had a heart attack following a performance in Arizona.

While the precise cause of Ford's heart attack remains  unconfirmed, there's speculation that his autoimmune disease might have played a role. Fortunately, Ford is currently in ICU recovery, and reports from his inner circle suggest he's holding on.

From TMZ:

We're told he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Myasthenia Gravis in 2022 -- so it may have something to do with his heart attack ... but it's still unclear at this point.

Ford is a known name in the country-rap music world ... along with several number 1 hits, he originally recorded Jason Aldean's "Dirt Road Anthem," which has garnered over 927 million worldwide streams.

He's had 5 consecutive Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart, with his album "Declaration of Independence" hitting the top of the charts in 2012.

Two years later, "Thanks for Listening" reached Top 10 of the Top 200 ... and also the top spot on Billboard Rap & Independent charts.

He's also received a nom at the Academy of Country Music Awards for "Cold Beer" with Jamey Johnson. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery ... get well soon.
