Garth Brooks has spoken out about the outrage many people felt when he won Entertainer of the Year over Carrie Underwood during this years Country Music Awards. In an interview with Good Morning America, he detailed being just as shocked when his name was called instead of Underwood’s. Because it was a night of honoring women, Brooks came under fire after he failed to mention Underwood in his acceptance speech. But he claims its because he hadn’t expected to win, so he didn’t prepare anything in advance! He said, “It was the year of the woman so we were all expecting Carrie anyway, and she justly deserved it, as well as the other nominees did.”
Had you also expected Carrie Underwood to win?
