On October 29, 2012, "If I Didn't Have You," was released as the lead-off single from Just Feels Good. For the chart dated May 11, 2013, it ascended to the top of the BillboardCountry Airplay chart, becoming their second Number One hit. "Everything I Shouldn't Be Thinking About" was released as the album's second single on June 10, 2013. It became the duo's fourth Top Ten hit when it reached a peak of No. 4 on the Country Airplay chart in early 2014.
"Testing the Water" was released as the third single from the album in April 2014, although was pulled shortly after spending only a few weeks on the charts. "I Can't Outrun You," a song previously recorded by Trace Adkins on his 2008 album X, was issued as the album's fourth single.
Brian Mansfield of USA Today evoked how the "songs play like a rom-com with dual narrators. They've got all the elements — meet-cutes, separation, obstacles and a happy ending — plus a soundtrack that mixes '70s-rock guitar with mandolin and pedal steel." Conversely, Chuck Yarborough of The Plain Dealer called it an "autobiographical album" that "is just too dang slick, and that love becomes cloying instead of sweet." Tammy Ragusa of Country Weekly found that the album finds the duo "laughing in the face of fear" and in doing that have crafted a "palpable" work, which she suggest that the next album be called "Just Feels Better."Taste of Country's Billy Dukes affirmed that the album "would benefit from a wider range of experiences and production approaches. It’s an album jammed full of happy love songs that, even with creative interpretation, begins to lose an edge." This is because that "As a collection of songs, however, Thompson Square simply rely too much on one dimension", and suggest that having a "single song about death, dogs, tractors … anything, really, would be a great way to break up the sweet monotony." However, Got Country Online's Donna Block vowed that the album "is a testament to the strength of their relationship." Roughstock's Matt Bjorke suggested that the duo are "ready to up the ante" because " Everything about Just Feels Good is better" that their debut effort, and he proclaimed that "more strong albums like Just Feels Good it's hard to see their run of hits ending anytime soon."
