Critical reception[edit]

Billy Dukes of Taste of Country gave the song four and a half stars out of five, writing that "there is a little lesson to be learned from Corbin’s message, but the easy rhythm makes this one that few will take issue with learning again and again."[3] Matt Bjorke of Roughstock gave the song four stars out of five, calling it "a strong, melodic and memorable single."[4]

Ben Foster of Country Universe gave the song a B+ grade, saying that the song "is a smooth, steel-heavy two-stepper, which Corbin effortlessly eases into with his signature laid-back vocal style that repeatedly draws comparisons to George Strait" and "the lyrics don’t warrant much explanation, but the sonic packaging almost makes them seem inconsequential."[5]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Shaun Silva and filmed in Austin, Texas.[6] It premiered in April 2012 as part of CMT Big New Music Weekend.[7]
