Critical receptionEdit

Deborah Evans Price, of Billboard magazine reviewed the song favorably, saying "leave it to ol' Travis to remind us that, as long as people drink, there will be drinking songs." She goes on to say that it "takes a lot of chutzpah to tackle an old Keith Whitley number, but Tritt rises to the challenge here, reminding us what a terrific song this is."[1]
