Critical reception[edit]

Billy Dukes of Taste of Country gave the song three stars out of five, saying that "It’s the sort of chorus you’d find on, well … a Jason Aldean song. His voice blends seamlessly into the arrangement, which can’t be said about Ford’s lines. He patters over a thin banjo and drum machine until the build to the chorus. This leaves his gruff delivery to carry the story without the support of the energetic sound machine that makes him such a popular live act. That’s not the best use of his talent."[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Potsy Ponciroli and premiered in October 2013.[2] The video features footage of an ATV driving around Mooresville, North Carolina.
