Reception[edit]

Dan Milliken of Country Universe gave the song a B+ rating, and said this in his review of the song that it was "their most country-sounding single in some time." Milliken also said that it showed influences from Alabama and Hank Williams, Jr., and that its songwriting "breathe[d] new life" into a common theme of showing pride in a broken family.[1] Bobby Peacock of Roughstock also gave a positive review, calling it "a good example of Montgomery Gentry's musical evolution" and saying that it continued in the "sense of maturity" present in such singles as "Back When I Knew It All" and "Roll with Me."[2]
