Reception

Juli Thanki of The 9513 gave the song a "thumbs up", saying that Corbin's "laidback, boy-next-door delivery fits the song perfectly" and describes the song as "an involuntary toe-tapper with a catchy hook."[1] Matt Bjorke of Roughstock also gave a favorable review with 4.5/5 stars, saying that fans of George Strait will likely like the song as he states that the track could have been on any of Strait's albums for the last twenty years. Bjorke also states that the song goes down "as smooth as a shot of top-shelf whiskey."[2] Slant Magazine critic Jonathan Keefe was less positive, referring to the song as having "an awkward lyrical hook that doesn't fit the song's meter."[3]

Chart performance

"Roll with It" debuted at #58 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the chart week ending April 24, 2010. It became Corbin's second consecutive Number One hit for the week of October 30, 2010.
