VIDEO: Rascal Flatts Admits to Lip Syncing at ACM Awards

The band only confirmed what viewers already suspected

We’re guessing Rascal Flatts wishes they could rewind their Sunday night performance of “Rewind” — the award-winning trio admitted to lip syncing at the Academy of Country Music Awards, which didn’t come as a surprise to fans.

The group posted a statement on Facebook and Twitter on Monday, saying:

“After having performed several shows earlier in the week, Gary lost his voice. So instead of canceling our commitment to do the show, we made a last minute decision to lip-sync. We’ve never done it before, and obviously we’re not very good at it. We look forward to singing live again in the very near future!”
