Billboard published a review of the album in the October 17, 1977 issue, which said, "This is by far Parton's most accessible pop crossover attempt. The material she chooses to work with, some by noted authors, others self penned, is delivered in Parton's little girl-sounding vocals. Her sweet-flowing voice becomes more and more likeable on each cut, emitting a warm innocence. The delicate string and horn accompaniment adds to the breezy, more subtle country effect. And the strong guitar work, pedal steel included, doesn't distract from Parton's vocals. Parton's title track single, which she sang on the Rock Awards television broadcast, is a sure bet to crack the Hot 100."
In the October 22, 1977 issue, Cashbox published a review saying, "Dolly's winning ways have convinced more than a few former non-believers that country and western audiences have no right to a monopoly on this songbird's talents. With this album, Dolly takes a giant step into the pop mainstream with a spicy repertoire that features only an occasional banjo or pedal steel lick. But even those who have seen her perform will have to be at least mildly surprised at how naturally proficient Dolly is at jumping into a completely new bag."
The album's first single, "Here You Come Again", was released in October 1977 and peaked at No. 1 on the US BillboardHot Country Singles chart, No. 3 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 2 on the US Billboard Easy Listening chart. In Canada, the single peaked at No. 1 on the RPM Canadian Country Singles chart, No. 7 on the RPM Canadian Singles chart and No. 1 on the RPM Canadian Easy Listening chart. In Australia, the single peaked at No. 10 on the ARIA Top 100 Singles chart. The single also peaked a No. 75 on the OCCUK Singles Chart.
In February 1978, "Two Doors Down" and "It's All Wrong, But It's All Right" were issued as a double A-side single, aimed at the pop and country charts respectively. The version of "Two Doors Down" issued on the single was recorded by Parton in January 1978 and features a more pop sound than the album version. It would replace the original album version on all subsequent pressing of the album. "Two Doors Down" peaked at No. 19 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 12 on the US Billboard Easy Listening chart. In Canada, the single peaked at No. 26 on the RPM Canadian Singles chart and No. 7 on the RPM Canadian Easy Listening chart. "It's All Wrong, But It's All Right" peaked at No. 1 on both the US Billboard Hot Country Singles chart and the RPM Canadian Country Singles chart.
In April 1980, "Me and Little Andy" was released as a single in the UK and it did not chart.
