Critical reception[edit]

Matt Bjorke of Roughstock gave the album three-and-a-half stars out of five, saying that it "finds him doing what he does best, performing nimble mainstream country music tunes as good as anything else on the marketplace."[2] Rating it four stars out of five, Taste of Country writer Billy Dukes favorably compared McCoy's vocals to Shelton's.[3] J. Poet of Allmusic rated it three stars out of five, saying that the album had "one great tune, two good ones, and a whole lot that get by on McCoy's powerful vocals".[1]
