Country rocker suffers a heart attack and Carrie Underwood’s thoughts on the current state of country | Music City Minute

Country rocker Colt Ford has suffered a heart attack and is currently in an Arizona ICU. His team confirmed the medical event happened following an April 4 show at Whiskey Row in Gilbert, Ariz. Unfortunately, we have no other details about his condition. We are sending healing thoughts and prayers to Ford and his family.

Miss Carrie Underwood had a lot to say about the current state of country music — and it is all positive! Using specific examples of Post Malone, Beyoncé and Jelly Roll, she said, “There really is something for everybody now.” From traditional to pop to crossovers, Underwood believes, “You can find something you love, and it’s all part of the same family and I always welcome that.” Amen Miss Underwood.
