Critical reception[edit]

Matt Bjorke of Roughstock rated the album 4 out of 5 stars, saying that "Dirt Road Communion is a diverse, well-crafted modern country album. It showcases Chase Rice as a talented stylist with a conversational, charming singing ability and the ability to connect with both tempo and ballads in a way that makes Chase Rice his own artist and not a carbon copy of anyone else past or present and that, my friends, is a true mark of an artist ready to burst into stardom.".[2]

In April 2012, the album peaked at number 48 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and was the #6 download on iTunes for the week.
