Critical reception[edit]

Billy Dukes of Taste of Country gave the song three and half stars out of five, saying that "a lesser singer may have turned this into a droll, cliche experience, but ‘Wild in Your Smile’ pops with the help of some country-rock production." Dukes wrote that "it sounds so easy for [Lynch] to sing with strength and conviction, and he’s showing the capability to navigate the subtleties that separate a good song from a great song."[2] In her review of the album, Tammy Ragusa of Country Weekly stated that the song is "a bit more edgy and electrified than one might expect from someone in pearl snaps."[3]
