Taylor Swift, Garth Brooks among CMA Award winners

Brad Paisley Carrie Underwood

Brooks, 55, previously discussed the possibility of lip-syncing at awards shows in 2015, telling SiriusXM that he had prerecorded a live version of All-American Kid ahead of the Academy of Country Music Awards as a precaution, in case his voice wasn't in fighting shape. Just before he was presented with the award, however, Brooks took the stage to perform "Ask Me How I Know" from his latest album Gunslinger, and viewers were quick to notice that he was lip-syncing.

The 51st Annual CMA Awards in Nashville, Nov 8, 2017. Not 10 shows in 12 days, 12 shows in 10 days. All you guys down here on the front row: We can all agree on one thing.

"I've got a band and crew that works their dog butts off", Brooks shared with The Boot and other reporters backstage at the 2017 CMA Awards. 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. I get to be with the love of my life.

Many fans expressed disappointment in the singer, a six-time CMA Entertainer of the Year.

"Sleep. Christmas. Sleep. New Year's Eve".

As for how they are going to celebrate, Garth said, "Taco Bell!" They also re-iterated all the Vocal Group nominees are still one big happy family, even though Rascal Flatts may not be ecstatic all three now share the same winning streak with the all-time champions in the category, The Statler Brothers.
