Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic rated it 2.5 stars out of 5, saying that "Maybe it doesn't hold together but, then again, there never was a clear pathway for this tribute to proceed anyway. The Crüe and country may share some common ground, but it's ungainly and only intermittently appealing, as this odd record makes clear." He praised the performances of LeAnn Rimes, The Mavericks, and Aaron Lewis. Jon Freeman of Country Weekly rated the album "B", praising the Mavericks' cover of "Dr. Feelgood" as the strongest track, as well as the performances by Moore, Rascal Flatts, Eli Young Band, and Gretchen Wilson. He found Aaron Lewis's cover of "Afraid" the most country-sounding, but criticized the performances of Cassadee Pope, Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio, and Big & Rich. Rolling Stone reviewer Nick Murray gave the album 2 out of 5 stars, with his review saying that "Unfortunately, few of the 15 featured artists do anything more than rehash their assigned song – often omitting even the slight twang Nashville usually requires." He also thought that the performances of LeAnn Rimes and The Mavericks were the strongest.
