Miranda Lambert’s Boyfriend Anderson East Slams Garth Brooks for Lip-Syncing at the CMA Awards

“We’re in the middle of 12 shows in 10 days,” Brooks said. “Not 10 shows in 12 days, 12 shows in 10 days. We did a game-time call on whether to sing the track or lip-sync, and decided to lip sync.”

The singer continued, “The voice just isn’t there anymore, and you want to represent country music as best you can.”

Accepting the award from Reba McEntire, Brooks thanked his friends, and including Lambert in his speech, while calling her and others “family.”

“Getting this presented to me by the entertainer of a lifetime, I thank you,” he said, nodding at McEntire. “Miranda [Lambert] said it best, Little Big Town said it best — we’re a family. All you guys down here on the front row: We can all agree on one thing. Let’s all raise a toast. … to the band and crew. I was talking to Kelsea [Ballerini] backstage about how we get to do this for a living. … The most important thing other than God…is you [fans]. …I love you guys. We’re a family.”

East, 30, and Lambert, 33, have been dating since September 2015, about three months after she and ex Blake Shelton announced they were separating.
