Critical reception

Music & Media wrote in their review of the song: "This singer has done quite well in her native Sweden, and in Japan, and with this track which fuses folk with R&B and more left-of-centre sounds she could make inroads elsewhere, too. Co-produced and co -written by famed Philadelphia producer/songwriter Billy Mann, who has worked with Carole King and Chaka Khan to name but a few, this song could go a long way because it's suitable for a wide range of formats." [2] They also noted that "If you haven't heard it yet, it's a great pop tune with lyrics which read like a short story set in smalltown America, complete with bar, rednecks and insecure heroine."
