Colt Ford, born Jason Farris Brown, is recognized in the country-rap music scene and has collaborated with prominent artists such as Brantley Gilbert, Jake Owen, and Willie Nelson. One of his notable achievements was co-writing the track “Dirt Road Anthem” with Gilbert, which was later made famous by Jason Aldean. Apart from his musical journey, Ford has faced various health challenges, including his recent diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis, a chronic neuromuscular autoimmune disease.

In interviews, Ford has opened up about the impact of his health conditions, with his eye being significantly affected. However, his determination and love for music have prevailed, and despite facing eye cancer, he managed to recover after undergoing surgery and continue performing.

Prior to pursuing a career in music, Ford was a professional golfer on the Nationwide Tour. His passion for country and hip hop eventually led him to combine the two genres, resulting in the country-rap fusion that he is known for today. In acknowledgment of his talent, Ford was nominated for an ACM award for Vocal Event of the Year in 2011.

Recently, Ford released a new single titled “Beers Back” alongside DJ Cliffy D and Jesslee. Unfortunately, due to his hospitalization, his upcoming performances in Nevada and Arizona had to be canceled. Further updates about his condition and future shows are yet to be announced.
