Garth Brooks was slammed by fans and other country artists for lip-syncing his performance of "Ask Me How I Know" at the 2017 CMA Awards. The Entertainer of the Year stopped by The Ellen Show and admitted he would lip-sync again if he was facing the same circumstances he was during the CMAs.
"The truth is, I love awards shows, but for me they're like the tree is to Christmas," he says. "They're the symbol of it, but they're not what it's all about. What it's about is those people who put those butts in the seat, travel, fight that traffic. That's who you save your voice for. We made the decision and I gotta tell you, if it happened again tomorrow I'd make the same decision."
