Critical & commercial reception[edit]

Billy Dukes of Taste of Country gave the song two stars out of five, calling it "a song we’ve all heard a dozen times before, served with generic country seasoning."[2] Chuck Dauphin of Roughstock gave the song a favorable review, writing that "it’s a performance that is ready to hit the airwaves. The chorus is particularly hooky!"[3] Ben Foster of Country Universe gave the song a C- grade, saying that it "takes a concept many times used before, and does nothing with it" and "the thick, un-country, radio-chasing production similarly earns no points for originality."[4] As of July 19, 2013, "Anywhere with You" has sold 644,000 copies in the United States.[5]
