Critical reception[edit]

"Drink to That All Night" received mixed reviews from critics. Billy Dukes of Taste of Country gave the song a positive review, writing that "the party anthem begins like a freight train barreling down some Blue Ridge mountaintop before introducing guitars, vocal effects and a final chorus that’s made for fist-pumping." Dukes also wrote that "the separate influences are deftly applied to – by the end – create a great turn-it-up moment of euphoria."[6] Matt Bjorke of Roughstock gave the song four stars out of five, calling it "as unique, innovative and risky an artist can get." Bjorke said that the song "has a good natured, feel good vibe to it and quite honestly, it's the kind of song that makes for a fun part of a road trip playlist, a workout playlist, or – of course – a party playlist."[7] Jon Freeman of Country Weekly was less positive, giving the song a "C" and criticizing the "monotone-rapping" of the verses and saying that the song was "surprisingly pedestrian", although he praised Niemann's singing on the chorus and said that the production "tastefully merges touches of electronic music with electric guitars without going off the deep end."[8] Kevin John Coyne of Country Universe gave the song a "D" stating, "This has a tired theme coupled with the dreaded vocoder effect." [9]

The music video was directed by Eric Welch and premiered in February 2014.[10]
