Garth Brooks is one of country music’s most beloved stars but he is under fire for lip-syncing his performance at the CMA Awards last week.

While talking to press after his big win for Entertainer Of The Year on Wednesday, Garth addressed the situation head on. He explained that he is in the middle of a 12-show run over the course of just 10 days and simply needed to save his voice. He went on to say it was a last minute decision and one he chose so he could represent country music the best he could. The entertainer then called his crew the hardest working in the business and praised Miranda Lambert for her incredible performance. You can watch that clip here.

Some country artists spoke out against him, most notably Anderson East and Miranda Lambert.

Others came to his defense, like Randy Travis and Blake Shelton.

Because it is such a huge story, Ken and I addressed the topic on the show this morning. What do you think – big deal or blown out of proportion?
