"Do I" is the first single from the album. Bryan co-wrote this song with Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood of the group Lady Antebellum, whose lead singer Hillary Scott also sings background vocals on it (but is not officially credited as a featured artist). Also included is a cover version of OneRepublic's "Apologize." Regarding the album's sound, Bryan told CMT, "We wanted to make a bigger-sounding record, something that moved a little down the road from the first record. We wanted to show my growth vocally and lyrically."
Country Weekly critic Chris Neal gave the album three-and-a-half stars out of five, saying that it showed a country music influence in the lyrics. Neal also said that "Do I" showed "a knack for convincingly delivering hymns to thwarted love," and said that while the "Apologize" cover was "well-sung," it was not "meant to be country."Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic also gave it three-and-a-half stars, saying that it was more relaxed than I'll Stay Me. Matt Bjorke described the album favorably in his review for Roughstock, where he wrote that "Bryan doesn't have to worry about a sophomore slump as he seems to have gotten better both musically and vocally on album number two." Michael Sudhalter of Country Standard Time gave a generally positive review, saying that Bryan's songwriting seemed stronger than on the first album.
