Content[edit]

Reception[edit]

Bobby Peacock of Roughstock gave "Camouflage" a four-out-of-five star rating, saying that it sounds "a little heavier and more rowdy than previous Paisley songs," also praising the "sharp and witty lyrics".[2] Kevin John Cayne, reviewing for Country Universe, gave the song a grade of D, calling the song's humor "indetectable."[3]
