My Kind of Livin' is the third studio album released by American country music artist Craig Morgan. His highest-selling album to date, it has been certified Gold in the United States by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
The album produced three chart singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. The first of these, "That's What I Love About Sunday", became Morgan's only number one hit, and it was the top country music single of 2005 according to Billboard Year-End. "Redneck Yacht Club" peaked at number 2 on the country charts, while "I Got You" (which Morgan had originally intended for Keith Urban to record) was a number 12.
Chris Willman of Entertainment Weekly gave the album a B rating and wrote, "Morgan's is an idealized Kind of Americana, to be sure. But at least he provides enough writerly detail to avoid setting off smarm alarms." Ralph Novak of People Magazine gave the album three and a half stars calling it "one terrific, old-fashioned country CD."
