Critical reception[edit]

Chuck Taylor, of Billboard magazine reviewed the song favorably calling it "a sultry, hook-laden tune that finds Ronnie Dunn in fine vocal form." He says that this single represents a departure from Brooks & Dunn's signature honky-tonk style.[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Trey Fanjoy. It features a model, (a then unknown Alana De La Garza of Law & Order fame) who is the central character of the video. It was shot in an abandoned warehouse, and shot in green. It was also the only video by the duo, to be directed by Fanjoy. Throughout the video, the model is seen in different layouts. The duo are performing, with a full band, on a high platform, in front of a screen, projecting the model's scenes. The model is also seen poking her head through thin blinds, seen as both the first, and last image of the video. The video was released in March 2001.
