Jana Pendragon of Allmusic rated the album 4.5 out of 5 stars, saying that "This is a hits package that shows off Marty Stuart's hard-earned success with tongue firmly planted in cheek." Jay Orr of New Country rated the compilation 3 out of 5 stars. His review criticized the album as "more like a marketing concept than a career move" due to only six of the songs coming from Stuart's own albums. He praised "If I Ain't Got You" as "a twangy rock 'n' roller" but criticized "The Likes of Me" as "generic radio fodder". Orr also criticized Stuart's vocal performance on the covers of "The Weight" and "Don't Be Cruel", but overall cited the album as a "neat summation of Stuart's work".
