Background[edit]

The single was officially released for digital download to iTunes stores and Amazon.com on June 14, 2011.[1][2] The single was released to radio on July 18, 2011.[3] A set of remixes was released by iTunes stores for digital download on October 11, 2011.[4]

Critical reception[edit]

Jonathan Keefe of Slant Magazine gave a mixed review on the song stating that "Rimes delivers a lovely, subtle performance on "Give," but the song lacks the depth of insight that "What I Cannot Change," the standout track on Family, proved she's capable of writing."[5] Randy Lewis of the Los Angeles Times claimed that song takes Rimes "back to the contemporary pop-country mainstream."[6]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Give" was released on Rimes' official YouTube on September 9, 2011.[7] A shorter version of the song was released later on CMT.com.[8] Both videos are directed by Nigel Dick.[8][9]
