The rumor mill was all a buzz yesterday that Rascal Flatts had lip synced their ACM performance of "Rewind" Sunday night.

Today Gary Levox confirmed that Rascal Flatts did indeed lip sync. Gary said he had lost his voice after several performances earlier in the week and it was either lip sync or pull out of performing all together.

He went on to say that it's the first time they have done it and that they obviously aren't very good at it, but they look forward to singing live in the future.

I know that lip syncing is done all the time in the music industry and at times the artist doesn't have a choice due to the circumstances.

Should Rascal Flatts have just pulled out of performing or was it alright for them to lip sync?
