Garth Brooks lip-synced at the CMA Awards on Wednesday night, angering fans and viewers, before the country music legend won the entertainer of the year award. He reportedly said he was worried his voice wouldn’t be strong enough if he actually sang.

Viewers picked up quickly on Brooks faking the song "Ask Me How I Know" shortly before he was given the show's biggest award, People magazine reported. It was Brooks second win in a row and sixth entertainer of the year award over his long career, the magazine stated.

"Right now we're in the middle of 12 shows in 10 days," Brooks, 55, told Fox News about his decision to lip-sync. "We've got four days [where] we're doing two shows a day. We decided to lip-sync it because my voice just isn't going anywhere, and we wanted to represent country music the best we can."

Rolling Stone magazine reported that Brooks previously told SiriusXM's Storme Warren that he had prepared to lip-sync a live version of "All-American Kid" at the 2015 Academy of Country Music Awards if his voice was not strong enough.

"It's going to come right down to the wire because I didn't think I had a voice at the (Lifting Lives) gala last night ... so we'll see how it goes," Brooks said, per Rolling Stone. "Either way, the track's not going to be perfect. For one, I can't do perfect, it's just not in my DNA. The track, even if we're lip-syncing, is as live as it gets."

Despite the explanation, Brooks' lip-syncing still riled fans.
