Critical reception[edit]

Billy Dukes of Taste of Country gave the song three and a half stars out of five, saying that "with somewhat thin lyrical content, the song needs that genuine delivery to push it to colossal levels of greatness," adding that although "Owen doesn't own this as he has his more successful hits," he is "talented enough that his good is another singer's great."[3] Giving it four stars out of five, Bobby Peacock of Roughstock praised the "straightforward but effective lines" and said that it was "overall a very different sound for the usually upbeat Owen, and he pulls it off. "[4]
