Blake Shelton is the latest country singer to weigh in on the Garth Brooks’ lip-sync saga.
It all began Nov. 8 at the CMA Awards when Garth Brooks admitted to lip syncing his performance on the awards show. Later in the week, Anderson East and girlfriend Miranda Lambert aired their disappointment about the situation over social media.
Then Blake weighed in, expressing his feelings and support in one short tweet on Nov. 10.
“Hey @garthbrooks … I still love you. #hero #respect,” he wrote,
Is it getting uncomfortable in here, or is it just us?
Since Garth’s Nov. 8 revelation (he blamed his decision on a strained voice), other artists have weighed in on the matter, including Big Vinny from the band Trailer Choir.
“Bad call bud,” Vinny wrote, calling out Anderson East, who started the ball rolling on Thursday with an Instagram post saying Garth’s decision not to sing live on the show “truly offends” him. Vinny’s post was accompanied by a picture of himself with Garth. “As much as I like your music, you will never be anything close to as impactful in the musical world as Garth! P.S. Your new record is great! You should probably humble yourself and apologize. Pretty sure Garth will forgive you and probably even do a song with you!”
Stay tuned. We’re sure there are more developments coming.
Let me tell you how real @garthbrooks is!!!!!!! I was blessed to meet him when he was inducted into the songwriters hall of fame!!!!! For over an hour he stood in the middle of the room let all of the folks that wanted to meet him line up and didn't quit till every person got their chance to chat!!!! I was one of the last in line!!!!! I was so excited to meet him!!! To my surprise when I walked up to him he said hey VINNY we watched and cheered you on while you were on the biggest loser!!!!! I told him how his music helped me thru a very rough childhood and how it was my escape from all the crazy things that I went through!!!! He looked me straight in the eye and said " our lives are not very different on how we grew up" he knew exactly who every artist in the room was even guys like me who have never had a number 1!!!!!!! He could tell the lady who was hired to take pics was wanting to meet him and get a pic so bad , he said hey let's do a pic. She replied I'm not allowed to!!!! He said well I'm asking you for me to get a pic with you, and if they fire you I'll hire you!!!!!! Who cares if he made a very seasoned call to lip sync!!!!!! He is the greatest country music entertainer of all time as for @andersoneast ( who I think is great as well) bad call bud as much as I like your music you will never be anything close to as impactful in the musical world as Garth!!!!!!! P.s. Your new record is great!!!! You should probably humble yourself and apologize pretty sure Garth will forgive you and probably even do a song with you!!!!!!! #garthbrooks #andersoneast
