Country star and former professional golfer Colt Ford will no longer be touring this year amid recent health struggles.

On April 4, Ford suffered a heart attack following his show at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row in Gilbert. He is currently undergoing treatment at the Intensive Care Unit at a hospital in Mesa. According to the singer’s team, Ford’s condition is “steadily improving in a positive direction.”

“At this time, his family is requesting privacy and appreciates your continued thoughts and prayers,” his team said in a statement.

Golf Channel analyst Charlie Rymer shared an update on the singer’s health last week, noting that “odds of survival were grim,” however, he’s now “making great progress and doing better by the minute.”

Mike Flaskey, CEO of Mike Flaskey Entertainment, also chimed in with an update, noting that after seven days of being incapacitated, Ford is now “awake and talking.”

Ford has unfortunately faced health struggles in the past and openly spoke about his Myasthenia Gravis diagnosis to Taste of Country. While he said the autoimmune disease has not affected his throat and vocals, it has affected his eye, at one point taking complete control of vision in his right eye.

Amid the news, Ford’s upcoming tour dates have been cancelled. He was originally slated to perform next at Woodford, Virginia’s The Groove Music Hall, followed by shows throughout the summer months in cities like Myrtle Beach, Columbus, Roxboro, Knoxville, and Fort Lauderdale. His remaining shows, running through August 24, are called-off.
