The album received a great deal of advance praise leading up to its release. Rolling Stone praised "Over The Hill And Through The Woods" for "melding unique old-time vocal breaks, a rich sonic chug that evokes some Seventies rock psychedelia and evocative storytelling;" Stereogum lauded "Honky Tonks And Taverns" as "an expertly polished, delightfully upbeat track;" and Elle noted that the album is "filled with songs that showcase her songwriting talent, blending pop heartbreak with country joy -- kind of like if Robyn spent some quality time with Willie Nelson."

Lillie Mae was also included in NPR's esteemed "Austin 100" in advance of SXSW 2017, and was named one of "10 Country Artists You Need To Know" by Rolling StoneEntertainment Weeklyincluded Lillie Mae in their "Breaking Big" column, praising "Over The Hill and Through The Woods" as "a stomping lament for a restless heart." People Magazine did the same in their "People's Pick" column, noting that "Mae's warm, self-assured vocal twang is rivaled by her vivid storytelling."
