Will Garth Brooks perform at the 2018 CMAs?

You may recall, Garth Brooks performed during the 2017 Country Music Awards, however, the moment was not without controversy.

Rather, fans called him out for lip syncing “Ask Me How I Know.” Garth would later confirm the accusations, citing a busy tour schedule as the culprit for his voice not being up to par for the awards show.

Now, nearly one year later, the country star is opening up about whether or not he’ll perform during the award show.

Truth be told, Garth would very much love to take the stage during the CMAs, however, it seems the Country Music Association might have different thoughts about penciling Garth in.

According to Taste of Country, the country star reached out to the association and pitched a performance. Garth said that he has a new song dedicated to his wife, Trisha Yearwood, that he wanted to sing to her in front of the crowd at the show, as she hasn’t heard the song yet.

However, Brooks revealed that the Country Music Association said that due to the fact the song was new and a ballad, it probably wouldn’t be a good fit for the awards show.

As of now, it doesn’t appear the country star will perform during the CMAs, however, he and Trisha are expected to attend the event.

As for the song, Garth will find a special way to share it with his wife.

Do you think the association shied away from Garth performing this year because of the lip syncing mishap last year?
