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!”
