NASHVILLE – Garth Brooks admitted to lip syncing during his performance at the 51st Country Music Awards on Wednesday night.
The singer, who took home the biggest award of the night for Entertainment of the Year, told Fox News he decision to lip sync was due to his heavy touring schedule.
“Right now we’re in the middle of 12 shows in 10 days,” Brooks told us. “We’ve got four days [where] we’re doing two shows a day.”
The 55-year-old explained it was a last minute decision.
“We decided to lip-sync it because my voice just isn’t going anywhere, and we wanted to represent country music the best we can,” he told reporters backstage.
Despite the singer’s explanation for saving his voice for his concerts, fans were quick to call him out on Twitter for lip syncing.
