According to USA TODAY

Garth Brooks, who picked up the ceremony’s top award for entertainer of the year, was criticized by country music fans on social media for lip-syncing during his performance of Ask Me How I Know, which is taken from his latest album Gunslinger.

Talking to journalists after the show, the icon admitted to using a prerecorded live track, explaining that he was sick, and in the midst of playing 12 shows in 10 days.

“We made a game-time call on whether to sing to a track or lip-sync,” Brooks said. “And we decided to lip-sync it.

“My voice just isn’t going anywhere, and we wanted to represent country music the best we can,” he added.
