Rascal Flatts' performance on the ACM Awards on Sunday (April 6th) has been taking hits from critics and fans alike. The group sang their hit "Rewind" -- or did they??

It turns out they did not! After being accused of lip-syncing, Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney admitted that was the case. The guys issued a statement 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 we're obviously not very good at it. We look forward to singing live again in the very near future!"

Rascal Flatts' next concert is on Saturday in Laughlin, Nevada.
