The 55-year-old legendary musician, who is now touring, lip-synced his performance of "Ask Me How I Know" earlier in the evening, and after picking up his prize he told reporters backstage that he wasn't well and it was necessary.
"Right now we're in the middle of 12 shows in 10 days", Brooks, 55, told Fox News about his decision to lip-sync. "Not 10 shows in 12 days, 12 shows in 10 days". "We made a game-time call on whether to sing to a track or lip-sync", the singer said. My voice just isn't going anywhere, and we wanted to represent country music the best we can'. When asked if he and his wife Trisha Yearwood could be considered the first couple of country, Garth Brooks gave all the credit to Trisha and said she makes any couple a great couple.
What'll he do after the whole thing's over? Others were less angry, more hilarious, tweeting jokes like "Garth Brooks is obviously the best country singer there is. sounds the same live as he does recorded", and "Congrats to Garth Brooks for winning the 1st-ever CMAs award for mime".
