Colt Ford, whose real name is Jason Farris Brown, told the “Big D & Bubba” show about his traumatic, near-death experience after an April 4 performance in Phoenix, Arizona.

Commenting on his survival, Ford said he believes God still has plans for his life, Fox News reported.

“The Lord had more for me to do, more music for me to make, hopefully more differences to make in some people’s lives,” Ford told the show, detailing how the experience changed him. “It’s been life-changing. It’s been spiritually changing. Obviously, it’s been physically changing.”

The “Slow Ride” singer said he’s still not totally out of the woods and needs to take care of himself as he journeys through recovery.

Ford also shared some shocking details about the night of the incident. Although he explained he has no recollection of even performing, he did recount later walking back to his bus and texting his fiance.

“I walked back to the bus, texted my fiance, Hi baby, and fell over dead,” he said. “I died two times. Luckily, my band came out to check on me.”

In the end, Ford was rescued and doctors were able to save his life. He told the “Big D & Bubba” show he believes the Lord had him in the right place at the right time, considering the much-needed medical care he was able to receive.

“God could not have had me in a better place,” he said.

It’s not entirely surprising the singer is bringing up God during his recovery. His official bio references his love for the Lord and America.

Colt Ford is about God, family, friends, and America,” the performer proclaims.” Im just a guy who loves life. I love people.”

In recent years, Ford has also battled eye cancer, which he overcame, and Myasthenia gravis, an autoimmune disorder. Continue to pray for Ford as he navigates healing from this latest health ordeal.
