"Right before they said it, I looked at my wife and I said, I just don't feel it this year" According to Garth Brooks he did not expect to win Entertainer of the Year at the 51st CMA's. Garth Brooks probably didn't expect to get bashed on social media the next day. Talk about a week of Garth Brooks put in the spotlight.

In case you missed it, Anderson East, Miranda Lambert's boyfriend took to Twitter to bash Garth Brooks' for his lip-syn performance. East said "I keep a lot of my opinions to myself and respect anyone making music but as a person who tries to put on the best and most honest show I can night after night, this truly offends me. I was told country music is three chords and the truth." Miranda Lambert echoed her boyfriend and said "High five on this babe. If you can't sing then don't. It's better to be honest than to pretend. I think it's bulls--t. My favorite performances were live live. The truth."

If you're wondering why Garth Brooks chose to lip-sync he explained "I was in the middle of like 12 shows in 10 days so my voice was just gone." when Garth Brooks was asked about his performance at the CMA's he said "I thought it went off like a charm, it didn't hurt at all. Everything was great." Garth chose to save his voice to put on the best performance he could the next day in Spokane, WA. Garth explained "Those people have been waiting all this time. They waited in line. They got those tickets. That's who you want your voice for"

"If it happened today I'd still do it the same way." Said Garth Brooks. This is why we love Garth, he puts his fans first, this is why Garth Brooks will continue to have us all begging to get a hold of his concert tickets.
