Critical reception[edit]

Bobby Peacock of Roughstock gave the song 3.5 out of 5 stars, describing the song as "a neat little inversion and a perfect fit for his voice." He also said that Adkins "seems to overdose on the masculine swagger, he tones it down just enough without sacrificing his slightly defiant, strong nature." Peacock also said that the song should get Adkins back on track as a country artist for good. [1] Kevin John Coyne of Country Universe gave the song a B grade saying that the Adkins sings the song well but he "doesn't sing it well enough to elevate it beyond what it already is". [2]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Michael Salomon starring Adkins and Playboy Playmate Jaime Faith Edmondson and premiered on the CMT website on June 18, 2010.
