The narrator instructs his significant other to head to the beach, stating that if something unexpected happens, they will just "roll with it."

Critical reception[edit]

Juli Thanki of Engine 145 gave the song a "thumbs up", saying that Corbin's "laidback, boy-next-door delivery fits the song perfectly" and describes the song as "an involuntary toe-tapper with a catchy hook."[1] Matt Bjorke of Roughstock also gave the song a favorable review and a rating of 4.5/5 stars, saying that fans of George Strait will likely like the song as he states that the track could have been on any of Strait's albums for the last twenty years. Bjorke also states that the song goes down "as smooth as a shot of top-shelf whiskey."[2] Jonathan Keefe of Slant Magazine was less positive, referring to the song as having "an awkward lyrical hook that doesn't fit the song's meter."[3]

"Roll with It" debuted at number 58 on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week ending April 24, 2010.
