OSU legend Garth Brooks named CMA's entertainer of the year

Garth Brooks admitted he was lip-syncing during his Country Music Association Awards performance last night, as he spoke out after fans took to Twitter to voice their disappointment.

"Getting this presented to me by the entertainer of a lifetime, I thank you", he said. "That band and crew works harder than anybody". "We made a game-time call on whether to sing to a track or lip-sync", the singer said. "The track, even if we're lip-syncing, is as live as it gets".

He explained that he was under the weather, and had already played 12 shows in just ten days.

After his big win, Brooks talked backstage with reporters, admitting that he did in fact lip sync. Reba McEntire presented him with this year's honour, with Garth acknowledging her and the rest of his country music "family" during his acceptance speech. "Entertainer of the Year and the love of my life xoxo", wrote Yearwood.
