Critical reception[edit]

William Ruhlmann of Allmusic, in his review of In Another World, said that the song was not one of the better tracks on the album. He called it "a wistful reflection on lost love, but a bit sketchy".[1] Country Weekly critic Mark Marymont gave a more favorable review, saying that it was "a shimmering ballad perfect for his expressive tenor".[2]
