Garth Brooks is an honest man!
The singer is set to perform at the 2015 ACM Awards, immediately after a series of shows in Portland, Oregon.
Garth is worried that he might hit his limit when it comes to his voice.
“I saw an ad on the television the other day, and they nailed it right on the head,” Brooks told SiriusXM’s Storme Warren. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime performance. I’m afraid I’m going to break down and cry right in the middle of it because it’s so emotional.”
“But also, you’ve got to remember, this is after five nights in Portland,” he added. “After the first show [in Portland], I won’t have a voice left. So we actually went in, and we taped — just in case we have to lip sync — we taped a performance that was solely made for the awards show.”
So what’s the verdict?
“We don’t know if we’re lip syncing yet or not,” Brooks explained. “But my bet is, if I know Portland, we’re not going to get out of here with anything, and then you’ve got to fly down and do that show. So we’ll see.”
Brooks is up for Entertainer of the Year at this year’s ACMs and is co-hosting ACM Lifting Lives fundraising gala on Saturday (April 18), and will receive a 50th Anniversary Milestone Award.
The 2015 ACM Awards will air live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on April 19 at 8 PM ET on CBS. Stay up to date with our LIVE ACM BLOG!
