Remember When Eric Church Called Out Garth Brooks For Lip-Syncing?


Back during the 2017 CMAs, Garth Brooks won the night’s biggest honor – Entertainer of the Year. He also performed on the show and…admitted to lip-syncing. Many fans called out Brooks, and so did some artists, including Eric Church.

When asked about the incident in a 2018 Rolling Stone interview, Eric said:

So the winner of the biggest category of the night lip-synced in the biggest moment on the show? Fuck that! And I didn’t like his excuse at all.

Chief is never gonna bullshit you – like it or not. Here was Garth’s explanation.
