AllMusic4/5 stars[3]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic considered the songs in the album "appealing" and that they "feel fresh in their melodies and observations." He thought that in the album "Pearce establishes her own identity: her showbiz and country roots are inextricably entangled, a singer with a feel for the past but an eye for the present".[3] Matt Bjorke of Roughstock judged that there is depth in the lyrics of the songs in the album, depth in her "powerful vocal", and depth in the production that "allows for Carly to be the artist that she is".[4]

Every Little Thing debuted at No. 4 on the Top Country Albums chart and No. 32 on the Billboard 200, selling 9,700 copies (15,000 equivalent album units including streams and track sales).[5] Carly Pearce also reached No. 1 on the Emerging Artists Chart on the strength of the album release.[6] The album has sold 35,400 copies in the United States as of August 2018.[7]
