Critical ReceptionEdit

Allmusic's William Ruhlmann wrote: "Perhaps the greatest indication that McEntire hasn't entirely given up on crossover is the recurrent sound of a saxophone in the album's arrangements. Its wail reminds the listener that, while the singer may be harking back to her country roots on Sweet Sixteen, her loyalty to tradition may be only temporary."
