Responding to fan reaction online, Garth Brooks acknowledges he lip synced his performance of “Ask Me How I Know” at Wednesday night’s 51st Annual CMA Awards.
Garth told media after the show: “We made a game-time call on whether to sing to a track or lip-sync and we decided to lip-sync it.”

Garth Brooks is lip syncing. Not what entertainers of the year do. #CMAawards

Not all fan reaction was negative, though. Many came to Garth’s defense, citing his relentless tour schedule in recent years.
Well, when someone just got done singing and performing 5 shows in 3 nights, and is a little hoarse, and now tomorrow starts a 7shows in 5 days stretch…I'm not mad if he did lip sync..I've seen 6 of his shows, he gives it all to the fans at his concerts!
